Ted’s got some explaining to do to California Republican voters.
CNN political contributor, Amanda Carpenter, got into a verbal fracas during a Friday segment. The former communications director for Ted Cruz (note this key point), who, along with five other women, is named in an alleged affair with the Republican presidential hopeful.
Carpenter defended herself from long-running allegations that she had an affair with Senator Cruz…allegations that were fed to the press by the Marco Rubio campaign.
Could she be shilling for Cruz? Maybe, she’s got a lot to gain if her friend and ex-boss Cruz becomes the president. We’re not sure, so we continue to wait for the story to unfold…as it no doubt will if she and Cruz are not telling the truth.
The National Enquirer exclusive story claimed its sources confirmed the Texas senator committed adultery while married to his wife, Heidi Cruz. OK, we get it…it’s the Enquirer. They’ve been wrong before. But they’ve been right too. Ask John Edwards.
The news spread on Twitter after the hashtags #TedCruzAffairs and #CruzSexScandal went viral last week, shortly after the story broke.
The tabloid showed distorted headshots of Cruz’s rumored mistresses without mentioning names of the paramours.
However, Liz Mair, a well-known GOP strategist, took to her Twitter account and alleged that two of the five “other women” are Amanda Carpenter and Katrina Pierson.
Pierson is a Tea Party activist, who was supported by Cruz during her past campaign for Congress. She is now Donald Trump’s national spokesperson for his presidential campaign. If the allegations are true, she’ll be a key reason.
Cruz, already incensed by The Donald’s attack on his wife, Heidi, on Twitter, issued a statement about his alleged affairs. In his statements, Cruz continues to attack Trump, but spends little time denying the allegations.
Also dogging Cruz are questions about Heidi’s, cozy relationship with Wall Street bankers, her mental health and a dust up with the Austin Police Department.
Cruz is sticking to his “I am not a crook” defense: “Let me be clear. This National Enquirer story is garbage. It is complete and utter lies. It is a tabloid smear, and it is a smear that has come from Donald Trump and his henchmen.”
We anxiously wait for the grand finale. So are California voters.
