For months it's been a common topic of discussion in Texas: how did Beto O'Rourke get my cellphone number and why is he sending me text messages?
Here at KPRC Radio we've received emails from thousands (literally thousands) of angry radio listeners who don't understand how Beto got their phone number.
Well apparently two Texas men could take no more and they're taking Beto to court.
A class action lawsuit has been filed against Beto O'Rourke's senate campaign from Texas voters who say Beto never got their permission to contact them. They claim Beto violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act is a law that prohibits the use of automated telephone equipment to send texts to people without their permission.
The lawsuit was filed by plaintiff Sameer Syeed in the Northern District of Texas Courts.
The end goal for the lawsuit is to require Beto's campaign to pay $500 per text to all the members in the class action suit.
For more information on the class action lawsuit, contact attorney Shawn Jaffer.
