Beto O'Rourke busted by angry voter for accepting lobbyist money while claiming not to accept it

Beto O'Rourke was on the campaign trail in New Hampshire this week, and during a town hall at a stop in Somersworth was confronted by an angry voter concerned about climate change and special interest money.

O'Rourke has made a major campaign issue of his promise not to accept money from PACs, lobbyists, or special interests.

"Beto, I was really inspired to see that you said you would not take money from fossil fuel executives.

"You took the max contribution from eight different fossil fuel industry CEOs and executives, and a lobbyist from Chevron on March 29.

After basking in the applause for returning the lobbyist's $250 bucks, O'Rourke declined the remainder of her challenge, including her appeal for him to sign a pledge disavowing all money from people in the fossil fuel industry.
