Such a ridiculous man-child.
Via Free Beacon:
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke likened his service in Congress to contributions to charity on Tuesday when responding to a critic of his low charitable giving.
The former Texas congressman has taken heat over his 2017 tax return showing he and his wife Amy gave $1,166 out of their $366,455 adjusted gross income that year to charity, a giving rate of just 0.3 percent. A town hall questioner at the University of Virgina asked O’Rourke why her sister, a recent college graduate, made far less than he did but gave more to charity.
“I’ve served in public office since 2005,” he said. “I do my best to contribute to the success of my community, my state and now, of my country. There are ways that I do this that are measurable. And there are ways that I do this that are immeasurable.”
O’Rourke added there were some charities they donated to which they hadn’t recorded and itemized to write off on their taxes. He went on to say he was sacrificing at that moment by being out on the campaign trail rather than home with his family.
