Twitter Goes Wild Over Ted #CruzSexScandal


National Tabloid Claims Ted Cruz Is Having Affairs With Five Women, Twitter Explodes

Supermarket tabloid National Enquirer today ran a story, "SHOCKING CLAIMS: Pervy Ted Cruz Caught Cheating — With 5 Secret Mistresses!" And it's exploded on Twitter, spawning the hashtag #CruzSexScandal.

As Raw Story notes, an "unobscured photo of Donald Trump’s spokeswoman, Katrina Pierson, appears in the published report, suggesting she may be one of the alleged mistresses."

Meanwhile, HEAVY is on the case too, publishing this tweet...

...and reporting that in addition to Pierson, the other two women in the photos may be "former Carly Fiorina staffer Sarah Isgur Flores, and former Cruz communications director Amanda Carpenter. Carpenter is married, while Flores and Pierson are not. There is, of course, no proof that the photos of the women match their pixelated counterparts, or of the accuracy of the National Enquirer report."

But Twitter has exploded, with users obsessed with the story:
