Establishment Dems furious at porn lawyer
Attorney Michael Avenatti has come under fire over a now-deleted tweet encouraging people to chip in for Beto now, linking to what appeared to be a fundraising page for Texas Democratic Senate candidate Beto ORourke.
In the fine print of the now-deleted campaign, however, ORourke supporters discovered that half the proceeds went to Avenattis Fight PAC, formed a little over seven weeks ago.
Users were able to manually allocate funds entirely to ORourke, however the default sent half of all money collected to Avenattis Political Action Committee.
It is pretty skeezy, said Brendan Fischer, the director of federal and FEC reform programs at the Campaign Legal Center, of the fundraising tactic. If Avenatti wanted to raise funds for Beto ORourkes campaign, he could just share a link to the Beto for Senate donation page. But he didnt. Avenattis tweet gave viewers the impression their donation would support Beto for Senate, and given how easy it is to make a one-click donation through ActBlue, some viewers could miss the fine print disclosing that their donation would be split with Avenattis PAC. Daily Beast
Avenatti called the criticism complete nonsense, noting that Senators Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris do the same thing. Perhaps sensing hed made a huge mistake, Avenatti deleted the page telling the Daily Beast in a text message: It wasnt worth the nonsense that resulted from people that dont understand how common this is.

“...noting that Senators Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris ‘do the same thing.’”
A finer pair of role models you’ll never find.
I’m glad this trainwreck (even for a lawyer) is on the Dem side. He’s killing them.
Typical dimoKKKRAT slime ball lawyer.
There, fixed it.
......It is pretty skeezy....”
Back where I come from, we spell and pronounce that as “sleazy”!!!!
It doesn’t matter if Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris—as well as Beto O’Rourke—do the same thing! Sleazy is as sleazy does!!!!
He has a very big tax bill to pay ,LOL
This Avenatti sure has his fingers in a LOT of pots.
Who does he think he is? Gloria Alred? *SNORT*
Is that why people choose to become “lawyers”? Do they think it immunizes them from any wrongdoing consequences?
They’re letting this slimeball get away with this, and trying to slam Sara Huckaby for posing with Kanye in a MAGA hat?
He may also be using that nickname to conceal that he is setting himself as the new Bobby Kennedy (Robert Francis O’Rourke) from the unwitting!!!!
Remember—if Beto wins the Senate race, he immediately starts running for President as the new “Bobby”!!!!
Nice job, Avenatti, picked up some easy cash from the idiots, eh?
They never learn.
(No, I’m not actually praising Avenatti - just having a laugh at the fools who actually support him)
Avenatti will be a wrecking ball if he runs for President on the Democrat side.
Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of folks...
Typical greedy, shyster lawyer. It’s all about money with those bottomfeeders.
Avenatti, Feinstein, Pelosi, Lieawatha, Booker, Waters, Schumer...
Where are the decent people in the democratic party?
