Ted Cruz Uses A Soft Porn Actress In Ad, Then Pulls It

Ted Cruz embarrasses himself by not properly vetting their actors. What else hasn't he vetted?
Views:

Oh, Ted. What have you done now? First you approved an attack ad against Donald Trump that creepily used children chanting "eminent domain" and for an encore, you've done, what?

Buzzfeed reports:

Ted Cruz’s campaign has pulled its most recent ad, “Conservatives Anonymous,” after learning one of the actors in the spot is also a softcore porn star.

The ad, which was set at a group therapy session of conservative voters who feel betrayed by Marco Rubio on immigration, featured actor Amy Lindsay, who played a woman telling another group member, “Maybe you should vote for more than just a pretty face next time.”

Lindsay has appeared in several softcore porn films, including Erotic Confessions, Carnal Wishes, Secrets of a Chambermaid, and Insatiable Desires.

BuzzFeed News, after learning of Lindsay’s prior filmography, requested comment from the Cruz campaign. Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler told BuzzFeed News in a statement that the campaign is taking the ad down and replacing it with a different one.

“The actress responded to an open casting call. She passed her audition and got the job. Unfortunately, she was not vetted by the production company. Had the campaign known of her full filmography, we obviously would not have let her appear in the ad,” Tyler said.

We all know you've got to take out Marco Roboto, but for a Christian Conservative to be using the sexy type actors is very shady indeed.
