Congressman Beto O'Rourke can be awesome when he is himself.
But when he tries to score cheap political points, well, he ends up looking like County Judge Veronica Escobar.
What cheap political points was O'Rourke trying to score?
We need a lifetime ban on lobbying for those in public service. Dole's successful shilling for Taiwan a new low. https://t.co/zu3R46knnX— Rep. Beto O'Rourke (@RepBetoORourke) December 7, 2016
Apparently, a phone call from between two democracies rubs O'Rourke the wrong way because one of the democracies hired a former US Senator to lobby for it. Normally, a democracy could have its ambassador lobby another democracy. But things being as they are, this democracy has to make-up for the fact it is does not have an ambassador in this other democracy.
If you ask me, as far as moral outrage goes, I would think sending large amounts of cash on an airplane to a state-sponsor of terrorism would rank higher.
Ah, but that state sponsor of terrorism did not hire a former US Senator to lobby on its behalf...so it is totally cool.
