National Enquirer: Ted Cruz Scandal

Postby The Enclave Government » Fri Mar 25, 2016 12:15 am

Content can edge over PG-13 if you're particularly sensitive. The scandal allegedly involves physical intimacy - you've been warned.

Presidential candidate Ted Cruz is trying to survive an explosive “dirt file” on the finger-wagging conservative senator!

And the new issue of The National ENQUIRER — on newsstands now — reveals how the reports say the staunch Republican is hiding FIVE different mistresses!

“Private detectives are digging into at least five affairs Ted Cruz supposedly had,” claimed a Washington insider.

“The leaked details are an attempt to destroy what’s left of his White House campaign!”

The ENQUIRER reports that Cruz’s claimed mistresses include a political consultant and a high-placed D.C. attorney!"


Read the full story here.

Now, yes, it does sound like tabloid news drama. However, this would put into context some odd behavior such as Ted Cruz's Super PAC giving 500,000 to Carly Fiorina's super PAC.

The Enquirer has gotten this right before, however, with John Edwards back in 2007 if my memory serves me.

If this is true - which it hasn't been verified independently yet - it could shatter the last opposition to Trump. Ted Cruz is a staunch family values conservative and this may do his campaign mortal damage and pave Trump's way to 1237.


NSG, your thoughts?

Shame on you, you made me click on a National Enquirer link.

But, this isn't a big surprise; Ted Cruz's 'family values' has always been a farce. If this is enough to get him out of the race, good riddance. Trump is better than this idiot.

I'm sorry! But I was late night browsing twitter and #CruzSexScandal is the top hashtag.

I actually strongly agree with you - Cruz is far more insane then Trump, he just hides it somewhat better.

I don't think their is a clear better candidate their. Just different styles of evil and lunacy.

Kasich is the last vestige of sanity in the Republican primary.
"Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes" When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics." When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy." - President Abraham Lincoln.

Are you really asking me to soil my mind with The National Enquirer?

As to the scandal, it wouldn't surprise me all that much, but Trump's going to win the nomination anyway.

Kasich as it stands now, might as well drop out. He is disqualified by the GOP's own rules for a contested convention which state that a candidate to be considered for selection must win at least 8 states. The party would have to meet ahead of time and change the rules which are still standing. Only Trump or Cruz can be seen as genuine choices because between both candidates, they hold 80% of the Republican primary vote.

PG-13 to have mistress ? Lol.

But then, who cares ? Private life of politicians is their own business (as long as it's nothing illegal, of course), what matters is what policy they propose. Ted Cruz policies are horrible (about as horrible as Trumps, even if he voices them in a less trolly tone) and that's the problem, not if he has mistress or not.

I agree with you entirely in principle but if he has been banging a political consultant and a high-placed D.C. attorney then surely that's a massive conflict of interest waiting to happen.

PG-13 because it describes illicit activites + the article explicitly mentions... a worker in fornication at the end.

I'd rather seem prudish then tempt the wrath of the moderators.

There have to be enough Republicans who hate Trump enough to vote him, right? Right?

No offense, but if the Republican Party held all the views you do in your signature, all you're going to do is kill the damn party and give Democrats perennial majority.

It's sad that in my very short time on this earth, I've seen the GOP at its most embarrassing low.

Also, I absolutely love that you have the Last Week Tonight Trump-to-Drumpf converter. Which, to you, probably looked like Drumpf-to-Drumpf.

I can also confirm Cruz and Trump have been having an affair for the past 30 years, and that Trump is the real father of Chealsea Clinton! Tell the National Enquirer and it'll be printed by tomorrow morning.
