WA Times Columnist: “Enquirer Correct On 2 Of Cruz’s Mistresses.” – Gets Fired

Update: At the time of this article, Amanda Carpenter Tweeted this out:

This is not the kind of Tweet you’d see from someone appalled at being accused of sleeping with a married man. Especially a married man who happens to be running for president. This is the kind of Tweet you see from someone who is resigned to the fact that they’ve been caught. If she were appalled at the accusations, her Tweet would have included about 20 F words, screaming, “You F-ng idiots! I slept with Ted Cruz?????? IDIOTS!!!!” I mean, any sane person would respond that way. Or they’d laugh and then say the same thing. I don’t think Amanda Carpenter is sane, though. Why? Because…

Amanda Carpenter slept with Ted Cruz.

True? We’re not sure, although, at the end of the day, when the “Ted Cruz Sex Scandal” has run its course, we’re pretty sure that that will be the headline that every major media outlet in America will be running with. Why do we believe that? Enquiring minds, read on.

On Wednesday March 23rd, the National Enquirer ran an online teaser about it’s upcoming newsstand edition saying that GOP presidential candidate, Senator Ted Cruz, has had 5 mistresses.

While the grocery store tabloid isn’t exactly known for its “credibility,” it should be noted that the rag did break the story of 2008 Democratic presidential hopeful, John Edwards’ affair with Rielle Hunter. Even the liberal New York Times covered the story. The allegations turned out to be true.

The Enquirer blacked out the eyes, and pixelated the photos of the women that the publication said had been involved with Cruz in order to hide their identities, but, Twitter sleuths easily uncovered 3 of the women who were apparently seduced by Cruz.


Washington Times columnist Drew Johnson Tweeted that 2 of the mistresses named are accurate.

Johnson went on to explain a little about what had been going on behind the scenes.

The Washington Times fired back, Tweeting that Johnson “is NOT a columnist with us,” but two Tweets later, stated that his employment had been terminated that day. Technically true, but strange that Johnson HAD been a columnist for them prior to his Tweets about Ted Cruz.

The funny thing? Johnson was a Washington Times columnist. One of the women pictured in the Enquirer who apparently had an affair with Cruz was also a Washington Times columnist (Amanda Carpenter). Carpenter was Senator Cruz’s senior communications adviser and speechwriter from 2013-15.

She looked a little different back then.


Johnson stated “From what I know, at least 2 of the women named as Cruz mistresses by the National Enquirer are accurate.”

How would Johnson know about those who “may” have slept with Cruz? I dunno, water cooler gossip, perhaps? Work for the same corporation, word gets around. People talk. Happens everyday. Especially in politics.

Oh, in case anyone’s wondering, Johnson is not a Trump supporter.

Back to Carpenter.

Just this month Carpenter created a “blackball” list of conservatives who endorsed Trump.

Carpenter regularly spews hate towards those who support Trump.

The funny thing is, a triple-amputee Iraq War vet founded this site (Freedom Daily), and he supports Trump. I guess Amanda Carpenter hates veterans who had their arms & legs blown off & will blackball them, too.

So, who are the other women named by the Enquirer who allegedly slept with Ted Cruz?

One is Donald Trump’s national campaign spokeswoman, Katrina Pierson. Pierson, an African American, supported Cruz during his 2012 Senate bid.

A quick Google search shows Pierson in close proximity to Cruz during the campaign.

Pierson gave a very Strong repudiation regarding her possible “involvement” with Senator Cruz, though. This is how we expect an innocent person to react when falsely accused of wrongdoing.

Pierson did not sleep with Ted Cruz. You can tell by her reaction to the allegations. Also, she’s much too classy a person to do that sort of thing.

Amanda Carpenter, on the other hand, is normally quite active on Twitter, has not reacted at all about the allegations. Many on social media have commented on her “lack of Tweets” since news of the possible scandal broke.

Carpenter gave a tepid response when asked to denounce the Enquirer’s story on CNN. Watch the forced laugh at 0:45.
She went on to say that if someone wants to comment on it they can “talk to my lawyer.”

The third woman Senator Cruz apparently had a tryst with is Sarah Isgur Flores.

According to BallotPedia.com, “Isgur Flores has been a legal advisor to Romney’s PAC, Romney for President, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee. She worked as political director for Ted Cruz’s PAC, Texans for Ted Cruz, served as deputy communications director for the Republican National Committee and worked on Carly Fiorina’s Unlocking Potential Project. She was the deputy campaign manager for Fiorina’s presidential campaign.”

Late last year, a Pro-Cruz Super PAC gave $500,000 to a pro-Fiorina super PAC. Some are saying it was “hush” money to silence Flores alleged affair with Senator Cruz.

ABC News reported: “it’s unusual for one of these groups to give money to an opponent, especially when the candidate it supports is still in the race.”

Flores has offered no repudiation regarding the Enquirer’s story, or to those who believe she is one of the women pictured in the article.

Regarding Cruz, many on Twitter are suggesting that:

Do the “help” have sex with candidates/elected officials/the politically motivated? Oh, 100% for sure. From high school politics on up, politically active women are attracted to politically active men and vice-versa. It’s fast & easy for those involved. I’ve seen it first hand.

I met a political friend of mine when I went to CPAC this year. She told me, “the whole purpose of going to CPAC is to get drunk & laid.” From what I could tell observing the attendees, she was 100% correct. Awesome times, & a 100% right on. But that’s a whole other story. Of course, if you’re a candidate/elected official, or a political activist who’s married, yeah, sorry, all bets are off. You stick with the one who brought you. Don’t be a John Edwards.

For now, all we can do is await the investigations.

In the meantime, enjoy the official theme song of political operatives, candidates, and elected officials worldwide.
