Breitbart News reporter Joel Pollak accused presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke’s campaign of ejecting him from an event where the former Texas congressman was scheduled to speak.
Pollak writes he and other reporters were in the room awaiting to hear O’Rourke speak at Benedict College in Columbia, South Carolina, when a staff member in a Beto O’Rourke T-shirt approached him. Asking what outlet he was with, the staffer read his press credential and, according to Pollak, “He put a hand on my shoulder and said, cheerfully, ‘Oh, hey. All right.'”
Pollak says a campus police officer then approached him a few minutes later and asked him to step outside of the room, where a different staffer told Pollak he was being removed because he had been “disruptive” at past events.
Pollak said he had only been to two other O’Rourke campaign events and said he had not acted in such a manner, saying his only interaction with O’Rourke was when he asked a question during a press gaggle Monday.
