Texas Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s campaign for the U.S. Senate was flagged on Sunday by the Federal Election Commission for accepting “impermissible” and “excessive” donations from people outside of the country, according to The Daily Caller.
O’Rourke, who has been bankrolled by Hollywood liberals, has been busted for accepting loads of money.
The FEC notified O’Rourke’s Senate campaign that a review of his campaign’s July quarterly report revealed that he had accepted donations from at least one person with an addresses outside of the U.S. Several other donations were made to the campaign that “exceeded the limit” that is legally allowed the federal government.
Below are a few images of the FEC report sent to O’Rourke’s campaign, which details the “impermissible” and “excessive” donations.

Ironically enough, the FEC’s blistering warning came on the same day that O’Rourke was scheduled to debate Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, his opponent in the hotly contested race.
O’Rourke, who currently serves as a congressman in El Paso, Texas, not only declined Cruz’s invitation, he spent much of that day uploading videos onto his Facebook page begging people to support him.
O’Rourke is the latest liberal darling that Hollywood and progressives adore and have been fawning over.
Ranging from his opposition to the Second Amendment, flirting with abolishing federal immigration agencies, vowing to repeal the GOP tax cuts, and wanting to accept more immigrants, he’s the poster child for the far-left.
O’Rourke has also come under heavy fire recently after a police report showed that he tried to drunkenly flee the scene of a motor vehicle collision that he caused in 1998.
The Texas Democrat has admitted to operating a vehicle while inebriated, calling it a terrible “mistake.” He has denied trying to flee after the wreck he caused, but the police report details that one witness offered a sworn statement that O’Rourke did try to leave the scene.
He’s also in hot water for accepting “impermissible” and “excessive” donations from people outside of the country, which could result in his senate campaign being hit with a major fine. It will also lead the FEC digging deeper into his campaign, which may uncover even more wrongdoing or potential illegal acts.
Perhaps aware of how his radical viewpoints don’t align with deep red Texas, O’Rourke has also largely refused to hold additional debates with Cruz. With November’s midterm election less than 30 days out, his refusal smacks of insult to Texas voters, many people agree.
Polling in Texas indicates that Cruz is holding a good lead, with a Quinnipiac poll released in September showing that O’Rourke is down 9 points.
Time will tell what happens next, but polling appears Texans are primed to reject O’Rourke over his radical policies and many shady actions.
