A Texas billionaire is suing former failed presidential candidate and current gubernatorial challenger, Beto O’Rourke over claims he made following a deadly power outage.
Energy Transfer CEO Kelcy Warren filed the defamation suit in February over O’Rourke’s claim that energy companies made substantial profits during the 2021 winter storm and then made campaign donations to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.
The Washington Examiner reports:
O’Rourke “intentionally, repeatedly, and widely disseminated his deliberate and defamatory falsehoods” in interviews, speeches, and on social media to “humiliate” Warren publicly, the suit said.
During the Feb. 2021 winter storm, the Texas power grid failed leaving millions without power and causing energy prices to spike.
As natural gas prices skyrocketed, Energy Transfer reportedly made billions, and Warren, a longtime Republican, donated $1 million to Abbott’s reelection campaign.
O’Rourke said he is being sued for “telling the truth and connecting the dots between the profits [Warren] made, the contributions he’s then made to Greg Abbott, and the policy that has been followed.”
“Greg Abbott and his top donors don’t want us talking about the fact that he took $4.6 million in campaign checks after allowing corporations to make billions in illegal profits while Texans froze to death in their homes,” O’Rourke tweeted earlier this week.

The people of Texas deserve justice. I won’t back down. https://t.co/nfjzprHAT6

I live in Indiana where it gets far colder than Texas has ever seen! Up here it is common sense to have alternative forms of heating in case the electricity goes out during a storm I use the round Kerosene heaters they work the best, but always make sure you dump any unused kerosene before the next winter so you will have fresh kerosene if you try to keep the old it will kill you with the exhaust fumes if the Kerosene is over a year old!
Beto is a turd! I think the people of Texas are smarter than to elect this pos—–t.

heheheheh Crap heads where ever you go. OK, lets ship there stinking asses to IRAN.
I wish he would just LEAVE Texas
So true a fraud, answering debate questions in Spanish on a nationally televised debate.
Beto is a first cousin to liein Biden. Both POS and couldn’t trust one word out of their lying mouths . Both should be hung for treason. We need to run this asshole out of Texas
He’s a demorat he’s worthless! Vote these corrupt players out! We dont need demorats for anything! They have to go! We need America back.
Amen to that. Forgot to say that he’s a white privileged fake, wanna be Latino. Got to where he is on his father in law’s wealth and connections. Maybe he’d like to start sharing his money? Ya know, equity and all….LMAO
The Democraps today are nothing more than leftists and commies. These are not your father’s Democrats of FDR, JFK, and others. The last time I voted for one was in 2004 but no way today.
Beto O’Dork is a typical lying Democrat politician. Makes me wonder if the Democrat political party has classes on how to lie.
Casey Your Message is GREAT GREAT!! CONTINUE.. THIS IS THE TRUTH!!!!
I don’t think they have classes – it’s all natural ability, and is a prerequisite to becoming a Democratic politician.
They sure do with the help of the propaganda team on lamestream media
HOW can anyone trust someone who runs around pretending to be something they are NOT???? “Beto” is not Hispanic and he’s a fool on top of that!
False Spanish name that is made up and answers debate questions in Spanish.
O’Rourke’s resume is too well known to take him seriously. According to big media, he majored in English literature and fled from a DUI but was detained by a news reporter. He burglarized a college. He was a teen computer hacker. He also stole long distance service. Worked as a manny.
He failed as a musician. Sweats a lot. Fidgets. Skateboards. Talks to strangers while using public urinals. Uses vile language in public but doesn’t understand constitutional amendments. He’s a flip-flopping lying democrat and remains Biden’s choice to disarm America.
Hopefully, he’ll grow up after this lawsuit drains his family coffers. He might even get a job. I wonder if solar panels need to be cleaned from time to time. Perhaps he could shred spent electric car batteries. I’ve heard wind turbine blades now are being recycled and he might find work there. (snicker-chortle-snort)
BOZO BETO = POS
Something that is a truth: You can hear,see feel and know a Democrat is lying cheating or stealing but they will likely never get as much as a slap on the hands. No justice appliedcto Democrats. They always walk away to tell another lie.
O’Rourke is a loser.
Beto can GTH.
Hooray awesome move
Public utilities are regulated by the Public Utility Commission, so they are supposed to be constantly monitoring EVERTHING about those utilities, including all their financial dealings. So, Beto would have to blame BOTH the Utility AND the Public Utility Commission, which probably has a strong desire to hire minorities and not the most experienced or knowledgeable. This is what happened in California which led to the horrible fires. Because BOTH Pacific Gas and Electric AND the Public Utility Commission had hired minorities and gays as their leadership – while other states focused more on actual experience and knowledge.
Not a Beto fan, but the article would have more punch if it showed the profits that Energy Transfer made during that period. Energy is like RAM in a computer – more is better. Wind, Solar, Coal, Natural Gas, THORIUM-based nukes, hyperinsulation, proper building siting – we need ’em all ;-}
Puto Beto a real pandejo.. The guy is a sicko. In El Paso who he stole Latino businesses besides the criminal record and SICK fantasy of running over kids playing in the street. But he fits the profile of a democrat – liar, sicko, pedophile minded, anti-God, swamp scum bottom feeder..
I hope Warren wins. The ease at which Democrats lie is amazing. More Democrat propaganda brought to you by Beto O’Rourke.
