Robert “Beto” O’Rourke sure seems to have a hard time following basic rules and norms.
CNN’s Eric Bradner took to Twitter on Thursday to inform everyone that the minivan O’Rourke has been cruising around in for the last week got a ticket for illegally parking.
“Beto O’Rourke’s gray van just got a $50 parking ticket. O’Rourke, who was driving, left it in a no parking area outside the Manchester Courthouse while he went across the street at Consuelo’s Taqueria. An advance staffer quickly moved the van. Here’s where it was,” he wrote.
Bradner’s tweet also featured an image of O’Rourke’s mini van.

The failed Texas senatorial candidate announced last Thursday that he’s running for president and seeking the Democratic nomination in a field that could see upwards of 20 candidates.
But in the past week, a handful of stories have come out about O’Rourke indicating that he tends to do some really weird stuff.
Earlier this week, The Daily Caller reported that the baristas and bartenders at an Iowa business were forced to wipe down the counters — where customers are served food and drinks — with bleach after O’Rourke stood on them with his dirty shoes.
Can Beto not afford a step stool? It seems there's not a lunch counter in Iowa that's safe from his nasty shoes. https://t.co/6bizt76yrv

Because O’Rourke couldn’t stay off the counters, employees at the coffee shop told The DC that they had to wipe down them down to ensure they were clean.
O’Rourke made another stop in Iowa this week to the Sing-A-Long Bar and Grill, where he again stood on a countertop where customers are given their food and drinks.
An employee told The DC that they used sanitizer to clean the counter and the step stool O’Rourke used to get up there.

O’Rourke may have an issue with cleanliness.
It was also reported by Breitbart earlier this week that after he lost his Senate race last November to GOP Sen. Ted Cruz, O’Rourke literally ate dirt.
To cope with his loss, O’Rourke embarked on a five-state road trip across the Southwest and somehow found himself eating dirt that he was told possessed “regenerative powers.”
But wait, it gets better.
He also admittedly brought some of the dirt from New Mexico back home to Texas for his family to try.
From standing on countertops to eating dirt to getting tickets in his mom van — the media headlines haven’t been great for O’Rourke this week.
