Senator Rafeal Eduardo Cruz (R-TX) will be making an appearance in OC this Thursday at a Lincoln Club fundraiser in Newport Beach. The event is hosted by Congressman Dana Rohrabacher and features both Jeb Bush and Carly Fiorina and it will be held at the Pacific Club.
Last week, the National Enquirer broke a story about Senator Cruz allegedly having multiple extra-martial affairs. This is the same publication that broke the Gary Hart-Donna Rice-Monkey Business story in 1988 as well as the John Edwards-affair-love child story from 2008, so while the Enquirer isn’t exactly the New York Times, it doesn’t run stories about Space Aliens endorsing Bernie Sanders for President.
The Washington Times, the conservative daily newspaper in DC, just fired one of their columnists who tweeted a confirmation of sorts about at least two fo the women connected to Cruz.
From the Inquisitr:
A Washington Times writer was abruptly fired after he “came clean” on Twitter about the Ted Cruz sex scandal. The writer, Drew Johnson, confirmed via his Twitter account that there was some truth to the Ted Cruz affair rumors noting that he knows at least two of the mistresses named by the National Enquirer are accurate. The columnist says that other media outlets, columnists and reporters knew about the affairs, but refused to run the story.
The National Enquirer has caused a media firestorm after publishing a cover story about GOP presidential hopeful Ted Cruz and a series of alleged mistresses. The publication is a known tabloid, but despite its reputation for the sensational, has broke a number of big stories related to political candidates and high profile cases in the past. For example, the National Enquirer was the first to break stories about Gary Hart, Jesse Jackson and John Edwards before they were confirmed by the mainstream media. Therefore, when the tabloid decided to run with a story about Ted Cruz and his rumored “five mistresses,” it left some questioning if the bombshell report could be true.
In response to the story in question, a Washington Times columnist responded that it is not entirely bogus as from “what he knows” at least two of the mistresses outlined in the report are “accurate.”
Following the controversial affirmation of Ted Cruz’s many affairs, Drew Johnson quickly found that his knowledge on the affairs was not welcome to be associated with the Washington Times and he was terminated immediately. In fact, it seems the Washington Times was so upset over Johnson “coming clean,” that they went so far as to claim he hadn’t worked full-time for the publication in over a year. In response to the allegations that Johnson lied about his resume, Drew posted screenshots of his bank statements showing his check deposits from the Washington Times, proving he was still being paid by the publication for his work.
Cruz has denied the affairs and denounced the stories, blaming the Trump campaign placed them. Other media outlets are reporting people associated with Marco Rubio’s campaign had a hand in getting the story out.
