According to the new issue of the National Enquirer, Republican political operatives are investigating rumors that Texas senator Ted Cruz has had extramarital affairs with at least five different women.
Courting the evangelical vote, Cruz presents himself as a deeply Christian man—despite the fact that he does not properly tithe. “I will readily admit that I have not been as faithful in this aspect of my walk as I should have been,” he told the Christian Broadcasting Network earlier this year.
Now it seems there may be other aspects of his walk in which the senator has not been faithful. From the Enquirer: “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 actual story—which is not online, but which Gawker has obtained a copy of—does not name any of the women with whom Cruz purportedly was involved. Descriptions are given for each, however, and at least one should sound very familiar to folks who have been following this election.
