Former Texas Representative Beto O'Rourke share a laugh during a break in the third Democratic primary debate of the 2020 presidential campaign season hosted by ABC News in partnership with Univision at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas on Sept. 12, 2019.

Some conservative groups have been laughing over an alleged online photo of young Democratic candidate Beto O'Rourke wetting himself at a party. Turns out, the photo is actually of Philadelphia rocker, (Sandy) Alex G.   

“I spilled a beer on my pants,” Alex G told Factcheck.org in a phone interview. “I was joking around,” he said, adding, “It obviously isn’t that funny anymore.”


As a follow-up, he took to Instagram to make light of the situation by posting one of the photo's memes that declares “I’M BETO ROBERT FRANCIS O’ROURKE I’M HERE FOR YOUR GUNS.”
