PHOTO: Texas Republican Party Tweets Old Mugshot of Beto O’Rourke and the Internet Swoons

Didn’t quite go as planned.

The story began online in 2013 that Canadian immigrant and current Texas Senator, Republican Ted Cruz, is the Zodiac Killer. Cruz—born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in 1970—could not have committed these murders which began in California before his birth and ended before his emigration from Canada to the United States. The story picked up steam when Cruz began his run for President in 2015.

While others cited other issues with Cruz’s public image or the Texas GOP post.

When asked about his mugshot at a San Antonio town hall meeting, O’Rourke stated:

“More than 20 years ago, I was arrested—not once, but twice. So you should know that and we should all own that, if asked.”

The Democratic candidate specified he attempted to hop a fence in 1995 and later for a “far more serious mistake—I drove under the influence of alcohol. There’s no justifying that.”
