Bruce Rappaport[edit]

The Bruce Rappaport at this article is not an attendee of the University of Chicago from what I can make (and would have been 40 at the time), so that definitely is a different person. I am also fairly sure that this said Bernie Sanders, not Bruce Rappaport last time I checked it (even though it says Bruce Rappaport now), so this should be further investigated.

If I recall, the university did some research and later concluded that it wasn't Bernie, especially now that the photo is making the rounds under the assumption that it is Bernie. (Article about it.) Even if the image links to the wrong article, the person in the image is not Bernie per the source. That should be changed. It doesn't make sense to undo the edit just because it links to the wrong Bruce. Change the link to a redlink if necessary, like Bruce Rappaport (University of Chicago alumni) or something.

(edit conflict) You be right; this article indicates that they were two similar-looking alumni. This photograph (also displayed in the TIME article) of Sanders shows the similarity. Dustin (talk) 01:46, 22 January 2016 (UTC)
Note: You just edited your comment. That article you linked was not in the comment I was replying to. Dustin (talk) 01:47, 22 January 2016 (UTC)
As a fair-use image, the aforementioned file will end up being deleted, as the Bruce Rappaport in question does not have an article. Dustin (talk) 01:49, 22 January 2016 (UTC)
