Ted Cruz has revealed himself to be the run of the mill lying politician he claims to be against. Before the caucus, his campaign sent out a mailer that contained lies and was written to deceive voters. The Iowa Secretary of State admonished the Cruz campaign for mailing out letters that falsified Iowa voting laws. Cruz’s greatest deception was on caucus night. His campaign sent two voicemails to precincts all across the state of Iowa urging the Cruz people to inform Carson caucus goers that Carson was dropping out of the race and convince them to vote for Cruz.
Secretary of State Pate released the following statement:
“Accusing citizens of Iowa of a ‘voting violation’ based on Iowa caucus participation, or lack thereof, is false representation of an official act. There is no such thing as an election violation related to frequency of voting. Any insinuation or statement to the contrary is wrong and I believe it is not in keeping in the spirit of the Iowa caucuses.”
Cruz’s answer to the the letter was that it is common practice to write such letters. If you stretch your mind, you might possibly agree with that in the same way that bank robbing is a common practice or rape even. Just because it’s practiced does not make it legal or moral. His defense on the caucus is even more ridiculous. He claims that the only thing his campaign did wrong was to not follow up when they became informed that Carson wasn’t dropping out of the race. That’s an outright lie.
The revelation about Cruz’s campaign calls and voicemails comes after an email surfaced from Cruz’s deputy Iowa campaign director Spence Rogers, sent at 6:56 p.m.–four minutes before caucuses began–suggesting that Carson would be “taking time off from the campaign trail after Iowa and making a big announcement next week.” The email told supporters: “Please inform any caucus goers of this news and urge them to caucus for Ted Cruz.”
Note the time of the announcement….6:56. So what time did the Cruz campaign staff notify precincts that Carson was suspending his campaign? There were two. One at 7:07:
The second came at 7:29:
Note that both voicemails were sent after the Carson campaign denied the rumors. Therefore, claiming that you acted on the information at the time is a lie.
Just about a week ago Cruz announced that the 12 million illegals here in the country will be allowed to stay if he becomes president was bad enough but now I can’t see the difference between the morals of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton or Ted Cruz. Another way Obama and Cruz are alike is that Cruz announced that he would not punish the campaign executive who ordered the precincts to spread lies.
Ted Cruz was originally my choice for president, but that’s all over now. I am voting for the only candidate who plans to remove the illegal aliens, Donald Trump.
