In front of God and with the assistance of TV – Beto’s mother aided and abetted his lying. Not a good example for other mothers and children.
Beto O’Rourke’s Mother, Who He Says Is A ‘Lifelong Republican,’ Donated To Obama, Voted In 15 Of 17 Democratic Primaries

Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, a Texas Democrat running against Sen. Texas Cruz in this November’s election, has a curious relationship with the truth.
Take what the congressman said in a September debate with Cruz about a drunk driving accident he had in 1998. “I did not try to leave the scene of the accident, though driving drunk, which I did, is a terrible mistake for which there is no excuse or justification or defense, and I will not try to provide one,” O’Rourke said.
O’Rourke, then 26, reportedly hit a truck traveling the same direction, jumped over a median strip — then did, indeed, try to flee, according to a witness who saw the whole thing.
After the accident, the witness told police officer Richard Carrera that “the defendant/driver then attempted to leave the scene,” Carrera wrote in his report. “The [witness] then turned on his overhead lights to warn oncoming traffic and try to get the defendant to stop.”
So, there’s that.
And then there’s this. On the campaign trail, O’Rourke often cites his mother, whom he calls a “lifelong Republican.” “Melissa O’Rourke, a lifelong Republican, will advance the open dialogue that the Congressman has led with Republicans, Democrats, Independents and non-voters alike all across the state over the past 16 months,” the Democrat said in a press release.
In March, with his mother, Melissa, on stage, O’Rourke said to supporters: “I want to announce in front of all of you, that my Republican mother is going to vote for me.” And just last Saturday, he said: “I am the son of a Republican mother who we have convinced to vote for me in this election.”
But CNN (of all outlets) reports that Melissa O’Rourke usually votes in Democratic primaries and donated to Barack Obama’s campaign before he became president.
Nothing I dislike more than a liar who is trying to win by lying.
The worst part was his mother helped him to lie by standing and agreeing with him. What a terrible example she set for other mothers. No wonder he is such a rotten person.
