SHOCKING: Ted Cruz Challenger’s Covered Up Crime

Beto O’Rourke, Ted Cruz’s Democrat challenger, was arrested in 1998 for DUI. But the full details have only just been revealed. The Free Beacon reports:

Texas Democratic Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke’s 1998 arrest for driving under the influence has been public knowledge, but police reports show it was a more serious threat to public safety than previously reported.

O’Rourke, a congressman representing the state’s 16th Congressional District, has acknowledged and apologized for the incident throughout his time in politics.

“I drove drunk and was arrested for a DWI in 1998,” O’Rourke said on Thursday. “As I’ve publicly discussed over the last 20 years, I made a serious mistake for which there is no excuse.”

Earlier in the week, the congressman wrote an op-ed on criminal justice reform in which he referred to the arrest as a “serious mistake for which there is no excuse.”

Will this impact O’Rourke’s chance against Cruz, when the polls have been edging this race closer to a tossup?
