Michael Avenatti, the so-called “creepy porn lawyer” who represents Stormy Daniels and widely-discredited Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick, is back on the campaign trail.
Avenatti shared a link on Wednesday encouraging supporters to “chip in for Beto now.”
Beto is Beto O’Rourke, the liberal media darling running against Republican Sen. Ted Cruz in Texas—despite new polls showing he’s badly trailing the conservative firebrand.
But a donation to Avenatti doesn’t go entirely to O’Rourke… in fact, Avenatti keeps half of it for himself.
A footnote notes that the amount “will be divided evenly between Beto O’Rourke and The Fight PAC,” which is the PAC Avenatti founded in August to apparently help fund Democratic campaigns.
Avenatti’s tweet–and the donation page–were deleted by Friday morning without explanation.
