Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke was dreading this day.
The biggest scandal of his life is exploding.
And it’s all because the police revealed what happened the night they arrested Beto O’Rourke.
During his 2018 Senate contest against Ted Cruz, Beto O’Rourke strongly denied the charges that he fled the scene of an accident while driving under the influence.
The police arrested O’Rourke and the report claimed O’Rourke did indeed flee the scene.
However, in a debate with Ted Cruz, O’Rourke declared that, “I did not try to leave the scene of the accident, though driving drunk, which I did, is a terrible mistake for which there is no excuse or justification or defense, and I will not try to provide one.”
But the truth is out.
The officers that responded to the incident and arrested O’Rourke went on the record with the Texas Tribune.
The Texas Tribune exclusively reported:
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.
Confronted with the truth, O’Rourke spokesman Chris Evans danced around the allegations.
“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,” Evans told the Tribune. “This has been widely and repeatedly reported on.”
This could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back for O’Rourke.
In the 2018 contest against Cruz, O’Rourke raised an unheard of $70 million.
“Beto” became a one word cultural “icon” to the Democrat base.
They fantasized about O’Rourke being the idealized version of a President you see in Hollywood liberal TV shows or movies.
But he lost that aura ever since he announced he was running for President.
Fresher faces like homosexual South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg have captured the imagination of grassroots liberals.
In addition, O’Rourke has battled accusations of white privilege.
Social justice warriors demand to know why O’Rourke, who is white, was considered a top-tier Presidential candidate, while Stacey Abrams—who lost her bid to be the first black female governor in the nation’s history—was not.
Identity politics obsessed members of the media and in the activist class claimed this was because of race.
That led to O’Rourke working in language about acknowledging his white privilege.
Now O’Rourke faces strike two.
“Woke” liberals will look at O’Rourke escaping accountability for fleeing the scene of an accident after being drunk and conclude that a minority would’ve been harshly punished in that situation.
The type of Democrat voters who drive the social justice discussion are upper-income white liberals.
Those Democrats make up Beto’s base and they are already abandoning him for Buttigieg.
This story could be the final nail in the coffin.
