Beto O’Rourke says he’s returning a campaign contribution from Chevron lobbyist after he was confronted by an angry voter.

It gets awkward real quick. Watch below:

The exchange between O’Rourke and the woman unfolded during a town hall at a tea cafe in Somersworth, N.H., after it came out that the 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful received a $250 donation from a Chevron lobbyist based in New Mexico on Mar. 29. The Texas Democrat has repeatedly fundraised on the basis that he has no ties to special interest groups.

“I don’t take PAC money, have not taken PAC money for approaching five years now, as a member of Congress, as a Senate candidate, and now as a candidate for the presidency,” O’Rourke said before handing the microphone over to the woman so she did not “have to shout.”

She told him he took the maximum contribution from eight different oil and gas CEOs and executives, which makes it “harder for us to believe” his promises to combat climate change. More

Who is he trying to kid? He took that pledge and then took money from them during his senate campaign. I wish someone would ask him what he has accomplished that makes him believe he is presidential material.

Career politicians only tell you what you want to hear, whether it’s true or not. If you believe anything they say, you are only lying to yourself.

Are you wondering like me if the questioner was a plant to give Beto a chance to get ahead of a breaking news story about him?
