Beto Was ‘Robert O’Rourke’ in High School, Won Award for ‘Imaginative Poetry’
O'Rourke's boarding school yearbook contains pictures of Confederate flag

The yearbooks from his time at the Woodberry Forest School, an all-boys Virginia boarding school O'Rourke attended after leaving his local high school in El Paso, Texas, refer to O'Rourke as either "Rob" or "Robert," the names he also went by while in college and while trying to find himself in New York City after graduating.

The school yearbook from 1991, O'Rourke's senior year, reveal a student who was already interested in punk rock, was involved with numerous literary clubs, and ran track. The yearbook also shows that some of his classmates at the small school posed for annual pictures with the Confederate flag, though O'Rourke does not appear in any of those images.

O'Rourke graduated in June 1991 and was awarded the Robert F. Williams Memorial Medal for being the student who "submits the most imaginative prose or poetry," according to the yearbook.

There are mere Bullshitters and there are Bull Shit Artists, like Robert O'Rourke the full of blarney Irishman.   Grin

Robert turned himself upside down & kissed the blarney stone and became "Beto" the Hispanic guy

Photoshop. Pretty obvious. Open in photoshop, layers, look at pixel difference between letters and the scan of an analog photo. If you scan a skid or beg or analog ohoto all will be the same.

I could be wrong. The pixels are different. But seems he had used the same and referred to same in the 1980’s

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/beto-orourke-reality-check/

Good balanced look. Surprising from snopes but seems fair.

Who in the hell calls a student by his nick name in High School.  More phony outrage by the wingnut right.

I find it hard to believe anyone would think you could keep the last name "O'Rourke" and still convince people you are Hispanic by changing your first name to "Beto." Snopes seems to indicate he had this nickname as a minor, so I wouldn't read too much into it.

As for the rest, getting an award for imaginative poetry speaks well of him, if anything.

Agree. But I’ve never once heard the media reference his last name. It’s always just Beto. Like prince.

snopes is not a reliable unbiased source.  Nonetheless, it only becomes relevant if he develops into anything more any an "also ran".  Then, everything about any candidate who actually may become POTUS ought to be scrutinized since character does matter and when anyone pretends to be something they are not, this says a lot about their character and integrity and ultimately their trustworthiness.
