A new report from DailyCaller reveals that six of the donors Joaquin Castro outed against their will on his twitter feed actually donated to him and his brother in addition to President Trump.
Castro had drawn the ire of conservatives who are accusing Castro of going after individual private citizens in an effort to shame and harass them for their political beliefs.

Democratic Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro published the names and businesses Tuesday of 44 San Antonio Trump donors, he also outed six of his own donors.
The reports state that three people on the list who donated the maximum amount of $5,600 to the president also maxed out to Joaquin Castro’s congressional campaign, while another three individuals named donated to Julian Castro’s mayoral campaign. Julian Castro is in the midst of a long-shot presidential campaign, which is being run by his twin brother.
Joaquin Castro attracted intense criticism Tuesday after he tweeted the names and businesses of Trump donors, but defended the decision, saying the donors are “are fueling a campaign of hate” through their support of the president.
Two retirees that made Castro’s list spoke with the Daily Caller News Foundation on Tuesday, calling the congressman’s actions “sickening” and “disgusting.”
“I’m a naturalized citizen, I love the United States of America, I think our president is doing an amazing job,” one retiree said. “He’s not a racist, I’m not a racist, and for them to be totally trying to be brainwash people, I think it’s just garbage. I think it’s just going to backfire on them, really.”
