O’Rourke Funneled $110K in Campaign Funds to His Own Company
Democrat 2020 presidential candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke funneled about $110,000 in campaign funds to a private web development company he and his wife owned at one time while he served as a congressman.
Beto for Texas donated $58,544 to Stanton Street Technology Group, a web development firm created by O’Rourke in 1998, between 2011 and 2012, then $39,060 between 2013 and 2014, $9,290 between 2015 and 2016, and $32,778 between 2017 and 2018.
During that time, either O’Rourke or his wife owned the firm. The payments are legal if the campaign sends a bill for the cost of the services, but some have called the practice unethical.
