Beto O’Rourke scandals keep popping up. The most recent scandal is his campaign was caught sending text messages to Texan voters on Wednesday asking for”volunteers to help transport undocumented immigrants” to the polls.

Beto O’Rourke’s camp admits the text messages are real, but they deny it came from them, according to the New York Times.

The Times noted, “If Mr. O’Rourke’s campaign were indeed helping undocumented immigrants vote, it would be a brazen violation of election law.”

The text message read, “Hi, it’s Patsy here w/ Beto for Texas. Our records indicate that you’re a supporter. We are in search of volunteers to help transport undocumented immigrants to polling booths so that they will be able [to] vote. Would you be able to support this grassroots effort?”

Chris Evans, O’Rourke’s spokesperson, stated, “That was not an approved message by the campaign,” adding that the creator of the text was “not a volunteer with the Beto campaign.” Evans referred to the creator of the text as an “impostor.”

The O’Rourke camp used an app “Relay” to reach out to millions of Texan voters.  The goal was to text all 3.5 million cellphones listed in a Texas voter records database. As The Washington Free Beacon notes, “According to Relay’s website, the company charges 8 cents per outgoing message for political campaigns.”

The Times reported, “A call to the number that sent the suspicious messages returned an automated message from Relay, the texting app used by the O’Rourke campaign.”
