Who is Beto O'Rourke? Glenn Beck profiles the 2020 'chameleon' candidate

'He constantly changes colors for his own benefit'

On Monday's show, Glenn Beck took a closer look at former Texas Rep. Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke, who officially announced his candidacy for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination in March.

By now, you've heard of this unconventional Democrat from Texas, but you probably can't say what his policies are or what his political agenda might be in the upcoming election — and for good reason.

"Don't ask Beto because he couldn't tell you," Glenn said. "He's whomever he has to be. He's a chameleon. He constantly changes colors for his own benefit."

Glenn noted a few little-known facts from O'Rourke's past, including his involvement with a notorious group of computer hackers called the "Cult of the Dead Cow," his strange affinity for writing morbid fantasy fiction, and his two arrests — one for burglary in 1995 and the other for drunk-driving in 1998.

He also talked about O'Rourke's father-in-law, real estate tycoon William D. Sanders, with whom the so-called "great defender of immigrants and minorities," collaborated to take over 300 acres in downtown El Paso, a historic Mexican-American neighborhood.

"This is corruption with a capital 'C.' You don't get much dirtier than this," Glenn said of the land deal.
