New Book Unveils Beto O’Rourke History in Computer Hacking

New Book Unveils Beto O’Rourke History in Computer Hacking

In a "60 Minutes" interview days before the election, O'Rourke insisted he would not run for president in 2020.

O'Rourke's hand movements during a video he posted online early Thursday that announced he was running became a focus of online fascination. "Is he insane or is that just how he acts?" and predicted victory over the eventual Democratic nominee. "I'm sure you'll agree".

"I think that competition is good in our party", the senator from Minnesota said, telling Harlow that former President Barack Obama has been telling 2020 candidates that he believes the more the merrier in the nomination fight.

Menn spoke to O'Rourke about the group while he was running for the U.S. Senate previous year, and several other members of the Cult of the Dead Cow (CDC) agreed to go on the record to talk about the group's activities. Reports stirred of O'Rourke's announcement Wednesday after he texted an El Paso news station, KTSM confirming his plans to enter the 2020 pool.

Calling it the "least surprising thing to happen since we found out Tucker Carlson said something racist", Noah complained O'Rourke had been on Oprah's show, on the cover of Vanity Fair, and released a documentary about himself, "but whenever we asked if he was running, "he'd answer like a coy southern belle". Kirsten Gillibrand said of O'Rourke on Thursday.

"Well, I'm grateful that ultimately it's up to voters, and that they'll have a chance to meet with me, question me, listen to me, and I'll have a chance to listen to them", he deflected.

An Australian court sentenced the most senior Catholic cleric convicted of child sexual abuse to six years in prison Wednesday. His life behind bars will be more hard with concerns over his safety given his notoriety and high profile, the judge noted.

"I think he's got a lot of hand movement".

"He's not going to get the money he got when he ran for Senate".

"Even though he lost to Ted Cruz, he'd come much closer than just about any Democrat could so that gives him some credibility he wouldn't otherwise have", said University of Houston political science professor Dr. David Branham. "And I think that's a very legitimate basis upon which to make a decision".

Standing on a counter, removing pieces of clothing and constantly gesticulating, O'Rourke's hand movements were seized upon as remarkable if not downright odd and immediately headed into internet-meme territory.
