In one of those Veritas undercover videos, Dominic Chacon, a field manager for the O'Rourke campaign in El Paso, Texas tells Anapaula Themann, a field organizer for the O'Rourke campaign, about his efforts to get supplies to the caravan from Honduras trying to make its way into the United States.
"These are all potential votes for Beto," Chacon asserted. "We've got to do whatever we can to ensure that they get here by election day. They need food and water. Beto has the money to pay for these supplies. We would be letting him down if we don't get these supplies to them."
Themann cautioned Chacon, asking him to be more discreet, "we need a good cover story if we want to dodge FEC penalties for illegal campaign expenditures. Let's say that we are buying supplies for our volunteers who are going door-to-door to get out the vote."
"That's not a bad idea," Chacon replied. "I think we can use the pre-paid cards we've got to mask what we're doing. I'm sure that Jody (Jody Casey, campaign manager for O'Rourke) will be cool with it. She already gave us the 'thumbs up' for the aid we've been sending the last few weeks."
Meanwhile, evidence that there is a considerable criminal contingent among the people in the caravan continues to mount. The Department of Homeland Security has already identified 270 caravan participants with criminal convictions for offenses including aggravated assault, armed robbery, and sexual assault on a child or adult female. One of the migrants interviewed on camera said he is coming to the United States in hope of obtaining a pardon on his conviction for attempted murder.
In related news, former CIA Director John Brennan heartily endorsed O'Rourke for Senator: "As a former resident of Texas I am proud to throw my weight behind his candidacy." Acknowledging that he hasn't been as vocal as he should be considering the high stakes, Brennan said "Beto is special, he brings out the same passion in me that Gus Hall did in the 1980 election. Both have expressed the same vision for this country." Gus Hall was the presidential candidate of the US Communist Party in 1972, 1976, 1980 and 1984.
