From Mad World News:
The Ted Cruz sex scandal is the center of debate as it trends across social media, and many question the legitimacy and source of the information. Some are saying Donald Trump is behind it, intentionally planting the story. However, the “rumors” have been around for weeks. The sources involved are just now coming to light, as well as shocking pictures which have surfaced, leaving many shaking their heads.
The first time that social media heard of the possible scandal was from Breitbart reporters Milo Yiannopoulos and Allum Bokhari, who took to Twitter at the beginning of February. Then, on March 15, Anonymous also started talking about a Cruz scandal.
Some people think #MicrosoftRubioFraud is the big scandal from last night. Wait until they hear the bombshell about Ted Cruz.

Both Breitbart reporters posted other tweets about the looming Ted Cruz scandal, but no story ever came out. Although many see Breitbart as pro-Trump, some speculate that the owner is actually a Cruz supporter. The Daily Beast has added information, which clears up why those reporters thought the explosive Ted story was just days away:
According to The Daily Beast, “for months and months, anti-Cruz operatives have pitched a variety of #CruzSexScandal stories to a host of prominent national publications.”
One such outlet was Breitbart News, which was shown “a compilation video of Cruz and a woman other than his wife coming out of the Capitol Grille restaurant and a hotel on Tuesdays and Thursdays,” a source inside the publication told The Daily Beast. (Leave it to a politician to keep a standardized booty call schedule.) The Breitbart source confirmed they’d received the video from a Rubio ally. [via Salon]
Another source, pointing to scandal long before Trump was blamed for the National Enquirer’s hit piece, as previously stated, was Anonymous. On March 15, 2016, Anonymous released a video, and the news is pretty bad for Ted:
“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. 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.” [via Gateway Pundit]
Other evidence emerging involves pictures that seem to implicate CNN contributor and former Ted Cruz communications director Amanda Carpenter. The images suggest that she and Cruz both came out with matching tattoos on April 1, 2014. The tattoos, which are of Winston Churchill, are not permanent, but there is another interesting twist.
Cruz appeared on Fox News on April 1, 2014, and he showed his “new Winston Churchill tattoo.” The very same day, Amanda Carpenter tweets out a pic of her Winston Churchill temporary tattoo on her shoulder. Here’s the good part — It was found that the fake tattoos are sold as a set of two.
These are the problems Cruz faces after blaming Donald Trump and the National Enquirer. As the video from Anonymous states, they were sending the information they had to all news outlets. Rubio allies were sending the video of Ted and the other woman coming out of the hotel/restaurant on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This was not a Trump conspiracy.
So, in the war between Cruz and Trump, this time, it’s clear Trump was not the one starting the #CruzSexScandal. The truth is not always pretty, but it’s still the truth. Cruz needs to inventory his life and think long and hard. Sources are saying this is just the beginning, and these stories always end badly.
