Beto O’Rourke was once in a cover band called The Sheeps, which performed punk rock classics. Here's a video of O’Rourke singing the Ramones with the band—in a sheep costume. You’re welcome, America. https://t.co/iv2bbq21vP pic.twitter.com/jXkixnJDQO

Hang on, this will be a weird ride. Start with recent furry news about this guy:
The story goes like this – this dude was deep in Jesusland and got high on snake venom and arm-wrestled The Zodiac Killer, and … OK, I can’t do serious writing about political battles here, but Beto almost won a Senate seat from Ted Cruz in Texas. I think it’s kind of unusual for a Democrat to do so well there. It’s unusual enough that he joined the 123547 people who want to unseat Trump in 2020. That made some Republicans want to embarrass him with typical anti-sex, anti-gay stone age bullshit, so they dug up an old video of him wearing a sheep costume on stage when he was briefly in a punk band, and called him a furry with insinuation about freaky sex. (Like that’s bad? Could anything else make him seem cooler? Yeah, wait for it…)
