I never thought I would be gossip writer. Oh well . . .
The National Enquirer has published a story titled, SHOCKING CLAIMS: Pervy Ted Cruz Caught Cheating — With 5 Secret Mistresses!, that has the nation all atwitter (#CruzSexScandal). Before you dismiss this story, consider that the magazine broke the story about John Edwards affair with a campaign aide who bore his child.
This story claims that Ted Cruz has had affairs with five women, including Katrina Pierson who is Donald Trump’s spokesperson. She has a connection to Ted Cruz. Wikipedia reports,
In January 2015, Pierson attended a meeting for Tea Party activists in Myrtle Beach with Ted Cruz; while in Myrtle Beach, she also met with Donald Trump. After meeting with Trump or his aides a few more times in the spring,Pierson introduced Trump at a campaign rally held in Dallas in September. In November 2015, she was hired as the national spokesperson for Trump’s campaign, subsequently appearing frequently on television in this capacity.
Another woman identified in the article is Amanda Carpenter. Wikipedia reports that she:
is an American author, political advisor, and speechwriter. She previously worked as a columnist for The Washington Times, and is the author of The Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy’s Dossier on Hillary Rodham Clinton. She has worked in the staffs for Senators Jim DeMint and Ted Cruz. In 2014, the Capitol Hill publication Roll Call reported that Carpenter had surpassed 50,000 Twitter followers, far more than other congressional staffers.
Both women have denied the accusation as has Cruz, who blames Donald Trump.
Trump certainly has a motive to make a false accusation, however, I doubt he would have identified his own spokesperson as one of Cruz’s mistresses knowing she wasn’t.
I will leave to you all to decide whether the story is true or false.
