Cruz campaign yanks anti-Rubio ad after viewers spot adult film actress

Published

on

Republican Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign quickly pulled the plug on a new ad promoting his conservative Christian values after some viewers recognized one of its stars from adult movies.

The Texas senator’s ad, “Conservatives Anonymous,” depicts a group therapy session of voters who felt betrayed by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) for abandoning the Tea Party values that got him elected in 2010.

Amy Lindsay, the star of several softcore porn films, plays one of the voters, saying, “Maybe you should vote for more than just a pretty face next time.”

The Cruz campaign removed the ad from YouTube after Lindsay’s previous credits were revealed.

A campaign spokesman issued a statement saying Lindsay had responded to an open casting call, passed her audition and won the role.

Unfortunately, she was not vetted by the production company,” Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler told Buzzfeed. “Had the campaign known of her full filmography, we obviously would not have let her appear in the ad.”

Lindsay told Buzzfeed that she was a conservative Christian and a Republican like Cruz, and she pointed out that she had not performed in hardcore pornography and had also appeared in non-erotic films.

She initially said the campaign staffer who hired her was “absolutely” aware of her previous work, she later called Buzzfeed back to say that was not the case.

“I assumed that they knew, but none of the filmmakers or the casting director knew about my complete filmography in the past,” she said.

Lindsay, who said she hasn’t decided whether she’ll vote for Cruz or Donald Trump in the GOP primary election, said she thought her identity might have helped draw some voters to Cruz’s campaign.

“In a cool way, then hey — then it’s not just some old, white Christian bigot that people want to say, ‘It could be, maybe, a cool kind of open-minded woman like me,’” Lindsay said.

‘Trump may well face charges’ after Supreme Court gave prosecutors access to financial records: Legal experts

Published

on

President Donald Trump could potentially face charges after the Supreme Court dealt him a loss in Trump v. Vance .

The ruling gives Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. the go-ahead to subpoena Trump’s accounting firm as part of his investigation into possible tax crimes involving hush money payments to his mistresses, according to attorneys Norm Eisen and Bassetti in Just Security.

"Trump has significant state law criminal exposure in connection with his hush money payments (for which his fixer Michael Cohen has already gone to jail on federal charges) — and more," the pair wrote. "Trump cannot pardon himself for state law offenses on his way out the door. And the Justice Department’s position that a sitting president cannot be indicted does not bind New York state authorities."

In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, Berman explained how Barr contacted him and repeatedly pressed him to step down from his position at SDNY to take another high-profile position within the government.

Berman, however, told Barr that he wanted to stay at his current job until a replacement was nominated by President Donald Trump and confirmed by the United States Senate.
