Beto O’Rourke, the current Democratic hopeful looking to unseat Ted Cruz in Texas, is apparently giving money to members of the migrant caravan according to his own staff.

O’Rourke’s campaign staff was exposed in an undercover sting video conducted by Project Veritas, where they admit to using pre-paid credit cards to get Honduran immigrants supplies and possibly transportation, specifically O’Rourke’s Field Managers Dominic Chacon and AnaPaula Themann:

Chacon: “The Hondurans, yeah… I’m going to go get some food right now, like just some stuff to drop off…”

Themann: “How did they get through?”

Chacon: “Well I think they accepted them as like asylum-seekers… So, I’m going to get some groceries and some blankets…”

Themann: “Don’t ever repeat this and stuff but like if we just say that we’re buying food for a campaign event, like the Halloween events…”

Chacon: “That’s not a horrible idea, but I didn’t hear anything. Umm, we can wait until tomorrow for that.”

Themann: “Well that’s exactly the food we need. And I will just mark it as, I do have dozens of block walkers.”

The duo explained how they can get away with using the campaign’s funds without reporting details about how they use it:

Themann: “There’s actually stores that just mark it as ‘food’ they don’t mark different types… at Albertsons, on the receipts, it marks it just based off of brand…”

Chacon: “I think we can use that with those [campaign pre-paid] cards to buy some food, all that s**t can be totally masked like, oh we just wanted a healthy breakfast!”

If you’re wondering if anyone higher up the chain on O’Rourke’s staff knows or approves of this, then rest assured that they do. O’Rourke’s campaign manager Jody Casey knows about it and is very happy about it:

Chacon: “She texted us afterward and was like, I’m so happy that we have a staff that gets it and was there, I was so happy to see y’all there, still working, still contributing, we have the best team ever… she was good about it.”

Journalist: “So, Jody knows?”

Chacon: “Well, she doesn’t know we used the pre-paid card, but she doesn’t need to know.”

Jody herself told the undercover journalist not to worry about it when asked:
