Last week, Democrat presidential candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke tweeted a video asking for donations to pay for gas as he travels the countryside campaigning. However, it’s looking like some of that money he raised might have to be diverted to pay for a ticket:
Beto O’Rourke’s gray van just got a $50 parking ticket. O’Rourke, who was driving, left it in a no parking area outside the Manchester Courthouse while he went across the street at Consuelo’s Taqueria. An advance staffer quickly moved the van. Here’s where it was. pic.twitter.com/SmkJqUhEp9

Perhaps another video is in order:
“Hello this it Beto and this is a $50 parking ticket. I need your donation to pay this parking ticket and many more just like it as I travel this great country.”

Wait for it!
There was a table to stand on. He could not be deterred! https://t.co/m8Mp1Us7vD

Did the health department ticket him for standing on the lunch counter?

That no parking sign is pretty obvious. Someone should give Beto a breathalyzer. https://t.co/dNEjDBmOm3

Technically, if you elect him, he gets a motorcade and these sorts of problems can be avoided. https://t.co/NGJBTOqlHX

Maybe O’Rourke should just get a driver:
Beto O'Rourke is STILL having issues with law enforcement while driving. https://t.co/55PMSMVIVq

So Beto ran away from another vehicle violation.

Let's face it, this is hardly the worst thing he's ever done while driving. https://t.co/r1Nm8al6QK

Fact check: TRUE.
