Video Emerges Of Beto O’Rourke Playing In A Band In A Skin-Tight Sheep Suit

A video has emerged of former congressional candidate and possible 2020 presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke playing a song in a skin-tight sheep suitO’Rourke is no stranger to social media videos that have gone viral, but this one is certainly different.

The video was pointed out by Donald Trump Jr. and is now lighting the internet on fire.

The video originally was posted by Jim Hanson, noting that it was “pathetic and funny BUT, the real disgrace is how much they sucked.”

 


Don Jr. quickly retweeted the video, indicating he felt it would be a great 2020 campaign poster.

Although this video has some humor attached to it, O’Rourke’s other major news headlines are less than humorous.

During his campaign to unseat GOP Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, a significant amount of history emerged on the state representative.

One major story that didn’t see much coverage at the mainstream level was O’Rourke’s 1998 DUI, where he admittedly left the scene of an accident.

n August, The Daily Caller, reported O’Rourke not only drove while intoxicated, he allegedly tried to flee the scene afterwards.  No one was reportedly hurt during the wreck.

Here’s what The Houston Chronicle reported, the outlet who obtained police records from the scene of the crash in 1998.

U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke has long owned up to his drunken driving arrest 20 years ago, describing it in a Houston Chronicle/San Antonio Express-News op-ed piece earlier this week as a “serious mistake for which there is no excuse.”

Although the arrest has been public knowledge, police reports of the September 1998 incident – when the Democratic Senate candidate had just turned 26 – show that it was a more serious threat to public safety than has previously been reported.

State and local police reports obtained by the Chronicle and Express-News show that O’Rourke was driving drunk at what a witness called “a high rate of speed” in a 75 mph zone on Interstate 10 about a mile from the New Mexico border. He lost control and hit a truck, sending his car careening across the center median into oncoming lanes. The witness, who stopped at the scene, later told police that O’Rourke had tried to drive away from the scene.

Whether it be legal issues or awkward past videoes, it will be interesting to see if O’Rourke can overcome these stories from his past as he moves closer to a possible 2020 presidential election bid.
