Joaquin Castro thought it’d be a laugh riot to doxx major Trump donors who lived El Paso. Small problem. Some of them also happen to be Castro’s donors. He doxxed his own donors, and they are not happy.
What is it that Bugs Bunny says? What a maroon.
Democratic Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro, who chairs the presidential campaign of his twin brother Julián, released a list of names of his fellow San Antonians who donated to President Donald Trump’s campaign. Apparently, Castro did not know that at least six of those donors had also donated to his own congressional campaign.
And not just any donors.
William Greehey, a San Antonio philanthropist and former CEO of Valero Energy, contributed at least $10,000 to Castro during his first two campaigns in 2011 and 2013.
“It is just amazing to me that he would do that. … Then he’s calling me a racist because I’m supporting Trump. I mean, this is just ridiculous.”
The Federalist also reports that San Antonio Real Estate Developer Wayne Harwell was also on the hit list.
“If someone dislikes you enough to try to affect your business or personal life, I will not support him anymore. Maybe Castro’s supporters should look over their shoulder,” Harwell said in an email. “Frankly, I think the nasty rhetoric coming from the Democratic national candidates is worse than anything Trump has said.”
I’m sure his presidential candidate brother is lovin’ the negative press on this.
