Beto O’Rourke Spends Millions On Consultants After Touting Consultant-Free Campaign

 

DC: Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke spent millions of dollars on a consulting firm during the final stretch of the campaign despite repeatedly declaring that his campaign would not use any consultants.

O’Rourke, who is running for Senate in Texas against incumbent Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, has been promoting his campaign as PAC-free, special interest-free and consultant-free since it first kicked off. O’Rourke told The Dallas Morning News in March 2017 he would not utilize poll-testing or be “consulting with consultants” and has repeated that claim at countless rallies and media events.

However, filings from the Federal Election Commission, first reported by Fox News Wednesday, show that O’Rourke’s campaign has been paying a consulting firm, Screen Strategies Media, almost $18 million during the last quarter.

“We don’t have a pollster, we don’t have consultants. We don’t use focus groups,” O’Rourke told The Dallas Morning News in February. “This is the power of the people, and you have shown so much — so much, so far.”  more here

  1. Did he do the skateboard stuff before, or after the consultants took over? I’m betting it was after. A fool and his money…

  2. Okay, it had to be the consultants who told him to slip some secret cash to the caravan. Maybe O’Keefe was running the consultant scam, too. My head hurts.
