Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke is in deep trouble.
The man most famous for losing to Ted Cruz is now running for president, but his campaign is already on the rocks.
And this massive skeleton in his closet could be the bomb that blows his campaign apart.
Robert Francis O’Rourke, best known as “Beto” O’Rourke after trying to portray himself as Hispanic, made it official this past week when he announced he was running for president.
The former Texas Congressman is perhaps best known for losing to Ted Cruz in the 2018 elections.
And now he wants to get a promotion to the White House.
But almost immediately out of the gate, Beto’s campaign ran aground.
This bombshell news just broke which could doom his campaign to disaster even before it gets off the ground.
“Beto O’Rourke apologized Friday night for writings the former Texas representative made as a teenager describing fantasies about running over children with a vehicle,” reports the Daily Caller.
This isn’t the first time Beto has been in trouble for something involving cars.
He was arrested for a DUI in 1998 and allegedly fleeing the scene.
The murder fantasy story however could be far more damaging to his presidential ambitions.
“I’m mortified to read it now, incredibly embarrassed, but I have to take ownership of my words,” Beto said during a taping of the “Political Party Live” podcast in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
“Whatever my intention was as a teenager doesn’t matter, I have to look long and hard at my actions, at the language I have used, and I have to constantly try to do better.”
That apology came after news broke that Beto had once written a murder fantasy about hearing children screaming as he ran them over with a car or truck.
It has also come to light that Beto was once a member of one of America’s largest hacking groups, called the “Cult of the Dead Cow”.
The groups’ focus was to hack Microsoft computers and help others do so as well.
The murder fantasy news could be the end of Beto’s campaign, which was just launched days ago.
“One day, as I was driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They were happy, happy to be free from their troubles…. This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dreams,” Beto writes in the story.
“As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two. I was so fascinated for a moment, that when after I had stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head.”
Beto’s campaign has apologized for the writings, stating that he was just 15 years old when he wrote them.
But the news could still be enough to sink his campaign just as it is trying to get off the ground.
