AVENATTI DELETES O’ROURKE DONATION PAGE THAT FUNNELED HALF THE MONEY TO HIS OWN PAC
IW ^ | OCTOBER 14, 2018

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 O’Rourke.

In the fine print of the now-deleted campaign, however, O’Rourke supporters discovered that half the proceeds went to Avenatti’s Fight PAC, formed a little over seven weeks ago.

Users were able to manually allocate funds entirely to O’Rourke, however the default sent half of all money collected to Avenatti’s 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 O’Rourke’s campaign, he could just share a link to the Beto for Senate donation page. But he didn’t. Avenatti’s 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 Avenatti’s PAC.” – Daily Beast

Avenatti called the criticism “complete nonsense,” noting that Senators Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris “do the same thing.” Perhaps sensing he’d made a huge mistake, Avenatti deleted the page – telling the Daily Beast in a text message: “It wasn’t worth the nonsense that resulted from people that don’t 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.

......‘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!!!!

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?

FEC...wake up!

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)

Beto is Obama's kind of cross-dressing guy-gal. Is this transvestite, transgender or just tranny in drag?

Avenatti will be a wrecking ball if he runs for President on the Democrat side.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of folks...
