The National Enquirer dropped a bombshell before Easter with the allegations that Ted Cruz has had multiple affairs, five to be exact, with his own staff, one teacher and one prostitute.
To add even more intrigue to the story, one of the alleged mistresses was none other than Trump’s own spokeswoman (and former Cruz staffer) Katrina Pierson.
While the mainstream media, including Fox News, has avoided discussing the sex scandal, One American News Network interviewed Katrina Pierson who claimed the Enquirer story as “totally false.”
Here’s Katrina in her own words:
Ditto for another alleged Cruz mistress, Amanda Carpenter, who claimed the story is “categorically false.”
Carpenter worked for Senator Cruz from January 2013 to July of 2015. Carpenter had been promoted to communications director months before her resignation.
Carpenter and Cruz carried a Clinton/Lewinsky vibe while displaying the same Winston Churchill tattoo, separately on the same day.
The third politico alleged to have an affair with Cruz is Carly Fiorina’s former deputy campaign manager, Sarah Isgur Flores. Sarah worked as the political director for “Texans for Cruz” from 2009 to 2010.
The backstory regarding Ms. Flores is the alleged “hush money” paid to Carly Fiorina’s campaign.
FEC reports show that an unconventional $500,000 transfer was made from Cruz’s Super PAC, Keep the Promise, to the PAC, Carly for America.
At the time of the transfer, Keep the Promise’s president, Kellyanne Conway stated, “Keep the Promise I made the donation in June to Ms. Fiorina at that time because we thought she had important things to say that weren’t being heard, including her poignant and effective criticism of Mrs. Clinton.”
The very large transaction between PAC’s supporting active candidates was highly unusual and even triggered an inquiry by the Federal Election Commission.
Just days before the Enquirer broke the sex scandal story, the hacking group Anonymous released a video warning to Cruz, “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 we have found.”
While Pierson and Carpenter deny the allegations, the hacking group claims to have information on the “candy wrapper” they claim is a Cuban prostitute.
A reporter from the Washington Times, Drew Johnson, also claims personal knowledge of two of the five affairs.

The Washington Times disavowed their association with Johnson, leading to the reporter to post his most recent paycheck from the publication:

While much more information is forthcoming . . . including the identity of the Austin prostitute who reportedly shared Ted Cruz as a client . . . the veracity of the National Enquirer story remains up in the air.
However, the same publication broke the story of Senator John Edward’s affair, which Edwards laughed off and denied, which turned out to be accurate.
The Enquirer was also correct about Jesse Jackson and Gary Hart.
The tabloid has also accused John Boehner, Hillary Clinton, Todd Palin and Barack Obama of extramarital affairs, however the accusations did not stick.
More to come.
