Some points of the interview that didn’t make the story:
- I personally know at least two of the women supposedly involved. Both already publicly denied the story uncategorially.
- I’ve seen Ted Cruz at dozens of campaign events large and small over the past 6 years. I’ve never seen any behavior that was anything close to what is alleged.
- The voters have already proven by their votes that a well justified reputation for marital infidelity does not disqualify anyone for the job.
Bottom line, it’s an unfortunate effect of the celebrity race – and culture – we find ourselves in that in a week when dozens have been killed by terrorists, and our President literally attended a baseball game not only with a dictator but with leaders of groups classified by his own State department as terrorists, the focus is on the rumors about the private life of one of the candidates.
