O'Rourke Not 'Proud' of Being in Hacking Group as Teenager
[quote]Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O'Rourke on Friday acknowledged that he was part of a hacking group as a teenager, saying he is not "proud" of the fact.

The former Texas congressman told reporters in Iowa while on the campaign trail that the hacking group was something “that I was part of as a teenager, not anything that I’m proud of today,” according to The Texas Tribune.

“That’s the long and short of it,” he added.

Reuters reported earlier Friday that O'Rourke joined a "hacktivism" group called Cult of the Dead Cow when he was in high school in the 1980s.

The group reportedly released tools that allowed regular people to hack computers running Microsoft Windows.[/quote]

Will he pay restitution to Microsoft for their lost sales?

If not, why not?

Was he on F-Troop
No. They will laugh it off as a youthful indescretion like Ted Kennedy murdering Mary Jo Kopechne or Bill Klintoon raping Juanita Broderick.
