The police are holding a secret about Beto O’Rourke that could end his career
Beto O’Rourke’s presidential campaign is in a tailspin.
His poll numbers are sagging and reporters are moving on to the shiny new toy in the race.
And now it’s come out that the police are holding a secret about Beto O’Rourke that could end his career.
In 1998, Beto O’Rourke was arrested for drunk driving.
The police report from the incident described how after he wrecked his car, Beto tried to flee.
Ted Cruz attacked O’Rouke for his reckless behavior that endangered innocent lives during the 2018 Senate contest.
But O’Rourke strongly denied ever fleeing the scene of an accident.
Those denials were exposed as lies when the police offices that responded to the incident went on the record and confirmed O’Rourke tried to flee the scene of an accident he caused while driving under the influence.
The Texas Tribune reports:
The former police officer who arrested Beto O’Rourke for driving drunk in 1998, along with the sergeant who signed the incident report, both say they believe now what they reported at the time: that O’Rourke tried to leave the scene of the wreck he caused.
O’Rourke admits he was intoxicated and says there is no justification for his actions, but he has denied that he tried to flee.
“Beto’s DWI is something he has long publicly and openly addressed over the last 20 years at town halls, on the debate stage, during interviews and in Op-Eds, calling it a serious mistake for which there is no excuse,” said O’Rourke spokesman Chris Evans. “This has been widely and repeatedly reported on.”
Neither the investigating officer, Richard Carrera, nor his former supervisor, Gary Hargrove, specifically recalls the events of that night more than 20 years ago. But both of the former Anthony Police Department officers told The Texas Tribune they have no doubt the report they compiled and signed is accurate.
This story could be the final nail in the coffin for Beto.
Liberals swooned over him in 2018, but in this race he is just another candidate.
He didn’t bring along the existing base of support that Bernie Sanders owns.
He doesn’t have the name recognition or institutional support that Joe Biden possesses.
His lane in the race was being the “media darling” and the candidate of liberal hopes and dreams.
But homosexual South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg stole that thunder.
Now, O’Rourke’s campaign appears to be circling the drain, and this could be the final nudge that causes liberals to move on entirely.
