Ted Cruz Launches ‘Internal Effort’ to Find Out Who Liked Porn From His Twitter Account

On Tuesday morning, we woke up to a world in which Texas senator Ted Cruz — or the person using his Twitter account at that moment — faved from his official Twitter account a porn clip tweeted by a porn account called @SexuallPosts. By early on Tuesday, the fave had been undone. But unlike the fave, which went away as easy as clicking a button, the memory lingers. Is this the kind of porn Cruz — a man who once defended a ban on dildos — enjoys getting off to? Is @SexuallPosts a favorite account of his? What kind of therapist should I see to get the mental image of Ted Cruz getting himself off out of my brain?

Now, Cruz claims he didn’t actually fave the tweet, but rather, somebody else on his team with access to his account did.

Following Twitter’s discovery, and subsequent roasting, of the fave, Cruz’s communications adviser, Catherine Frazier, tweeted, “The offensive tweet posted on @tedcruz account earlier has been removed by staff and reported to Twitter.” Later on Tuesday, Cruz told Politico that “someone,” not him, had faved the tweet.

“There are a number of people on the team who have access on the account. It appears that someone inadvertently hit the like button. When we discovered the post, which was I guess an hour or two later, we pulled it down,” Cruz said. “It was a staffing issue. And it was inadvertent, it was a mistake. It was not a deliberate act. We’re dealing with it internally, but it was a mistake. It was not malicious.” The state of Texas no doubt thanks Cruz for his thorough investigation into this tragedy.
