Joaquin Castro’s Attempt To Shame Trump Bites Him Harder

Why don’t these crazies understand your place of employment and home address are not public information nor is it legal to put it out?

Congressman Joaquin Castro’s attempt to shame Texas constituents who donated to President Donald Trump continues to deliver negative results.

After Castro released the list on Twitter, he later learned that he outed one of his own donors from the San Antonio area. Now, we are learning that he may in fact have alienated several more.

According to the Washington Examiner, that list exposed at least three donors and possibly more who had financially helped him or his brother Julian Castro, a former Housing and Urban Development secretary and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate.

A Washington Examiner review of Federal Elections Committee filings found three individuals on the list who gave $5,600 to Trump, the maximum available by law for the primary and general election, and Joaquin Castro, a congressman from San Antonio who also leads the presidential campaign of his brother, a former San Antonio mayor.

Another three individuals on the list told the Washington Examiner that they supported Julián Castro’s mayoral campaigns. Julián Castro served as San Antonio mayor from 2009 to 2014, before being tapped as HUD secretary for the final two-and-a-half years of President Barack Obama’s administration.

The congressman’s approach left many of the San Antonio-area Trump donors on the list who gave to the Castro brothers angered and hurt.

It is just amazing to me that he would do that,” said William Greehey, a philanthropist and former CEO of Valero Energy, who donated $5,000 to Joaquin Castro’s congressional campaign in 2013, covering the primary and general elections. [Washington Examiner]

So Joaquin names donors and employers in an attempt to have them shamed and harassed and then accuses those he is the outing of “fueling a campaign of hate.” Where is the ethics committee to stomp all over this guy? Does he not realize he is supposed to represent all the people of his district?

Would the same Democrats that endorse Castro’s right to publish Trump donors, also endorse the right to publish the names of those who exercised their right to get an abortion in the daily paper or online… or post their addresses or phone numbers? What he did was as wrong, as what Rep. Maxine Waters did in asking folks to go after members of Trump’s administration. Castro’s move was reprehensible!

Now that we have a pretty good idea who these people are and what they stand for, this upcoming 2020 election may be the most important election in our American lives. My skin was absolutely, literally crawling when watching the Democratic debates. Who ARE these people? What happened to them?

  • Just change the channel to American Pickers or Pawn Stars then return to Fox for the next News Anchor who is sane.

  • What gets me is that a person with a name like "Castro" would want to keep their darn mouth shut! When first saw a "Castro" was running for office, could not help but think of the Cuban Castro family! Have not checked but are the Texas Castros related to the Cuban ones?

  • This despicable little runt should be sued by everyone on that list. And if anyone on that list is harmed in any way, the runt should be charged as an accomplice.

  • I'm hispanic so I feel I can rant just a bit. I think these two mexican polical clowns are a disgrace. They make me ashamed to even consider that we are of the same race. I'm hoping that I came from an area where they passed out more brain. It looks like these two dopes may have shared their brain with others.

  • Joaquin Castro's behavior was reprehensible! Making sure a person's political donation is available to oversight by the government is supposed to keep elections from being bought. That's a good thing. Taking this information and making public a donor's name, address, phone number, and workplace, does not embarrass the donor. It is showing just how desperate an opposing candidate is that he would do this. It is low, underhanded, and morally questionable. If I had planned to vote for Julian Castro, I would assume the behavior of his brother was done with his approval and would not vote for him because of it. If he would be this sleazy in his campaign, where would he draw the line?
