The Beto O’Rourke campaign is in a panic after a text went out from their campaign asking for help in getting out the ILLEGAL ALIEN vote!! LOL!!
This is an actual text a friend in Texas just received. It is NOT from the Beto campaign. Very slick, Ted Cruz & Texas Republicans. pic.twitter.com/oyIU2TzoA4

This guy is blaming Cruz, but it actually did come from the O’Rourke campaign – they confirmed it to the New York Times and blamed it on a campaign “imposter”!
On Wednesday, an unidentified volunteer for Beto O’Rourke, the Texas Democrat who is running against Senator Ted Cruz, gained access to the campaign’s mass-texting system and sent a series of unauthorized messages to Mr. O’Rourke’s supporters.
“We are in search of volunteers to help transport undocumented immigrants to polling booths so that they will be able to vote,” read one of the messages, which claimed to be from an O’Rourke volunteer named Patsy. “Would you be able to support this grass-roots effort?”
A second message, also sent by a purported volunteer named Patsy, claimed that the campaign was conducting an internal poll, and asked recipients for their opinions on “the dangers of socialism.”
LOL!! That is hilarious!! I bet they’re freaking out right now:
The messages were sent by a first-time volunteer who had signed up for a shift on the campaign’s “texting team” under a fake name and whose real identity was still being investigated, according to a campaign staffer. The campaign believes the messages reached fewer than 1,000 people, the staffer said, adding that they were the only examples of unauthorized messages the campaign had found.
Cruz had a pretty hilarious joke about it:
I’ve gotten three of them myself. My dad has gotten five,” he said, according to the newspaper.
“By the third one I was thinking, ‘Maybe I should vote for him,’” Cruz joked.
LOL!! I dunno man, if O’Rourke can’t keep imposters out of his campaign, can we trust him with the reins of power? Hmmm….
