The hacktivist group Anonymous is once again getting involved with presidential politics, and this time they’re going after Senator Ted Cruz. They’re demanding he drop out of the race, or they’re going to release what they say is incredibly damning information.
By now you’ve probably heard about the alleged sex scandal involving Cruz and numerous women, which means you’ve also heard that Cruz has placed the blame squarely on Donald Trump. However, Trump denies the accusation, and it’s highly unlikely that he gave information to Anonymous, who last week claimed to have evidence of Cruz’s infidelity.
In a video reminiscent of their others, the group of hackers warned Cruz that if he didn’t drop out of the race for president, they would prove to the world he has a love of prostitutes.
“Have you heard of the expression ‘candy wrappers’? Do you recall visiting prostitutes? Mr. Cruz, we are now demanding you exit this race immediately or Anonymous will release all of the information that we have found,” the group said in a video statement. “Your so-called underground acts that you think were done in the dark, will be brought out for all the public to see. It will be sent to every media outlet to publicize your disgusting behavior. We assure you it will go viral on every social media platforms in a matter of minutes.”
While Cruz blames Trump’s friendship with the CEO of the National Enquirer for the salacious expose, rumors of Cruz’s affairs have been swirling for weeks and there’s no evidence linking him to the story. In fact, a source from Breitbart News told the Daily Beast said that the website’s editors were approached with a Cruz sex story, but they turned it down.
Guess who they said approached them with it?
“We got it from a Rubio ally,” the source told the Beast. “It was too thin, so [Breitbart’s Washington political editor Matt Boyle] decided not to run it. There was no way to verify the claims.”
So there you have it. Trump has given Cruz the nickname “Lyin’ Ted,” and apparently, it suits him well.
Then again, we’ve known for some time that Cruz isn’t exactly honest all the time. After all, he did blame Trump for the violent Chicago protests, then again blamed Trump for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) terror attack in Brussels, both of which were bald-faced lies.
