The National Enquirer is reporting that Ted Cruz is hiding five different mistresses.
Before you scoff, remember that the National Enquirer was right about Gary Hart’s affair, and John Edwards. Others in (somewhat) more respectable media outlets seem to think it is accurate.

Brietbart News is claiming the story was peddled to them some time ago by “Rubio allies”
The bombshell report, published in the magazine’s March 25th issue, includes pixelated photos of the women allegedly involved with the first-term senator, but doesn’t give their names.
However, several reports in online journals and on Twitter — where the hashtag #CruzSexScandal is trending worldwide — identify one of the women as Katrina Pierson, a former Cruz aide and tea party congressional candidate who now works for GOP front-runner Donald Trump.
Pierson identified above rejected the allegations on Twitter:
Of course the National Enquirer story is 100% FALSE!!! I only speak to myself, however.

Yet she made her Instragram account private last night:
Another of Cruz’s purported lovers outed by the Internet is Sarah Isgur Flores, who worked for former Republican presidential contender Carly Fiorina. The former Hewlett-Packard CEO briefly challenged Trump for the lead in the race, but she dropped out of the campaign in February.
Last July, a Cruz-affiliated super PAC donated $500,000 to Fiorina’s campaign, without explanation — a highly unusual move that is being reexamined in light of the Enquirer’s report about Cruz’s indiscretions. And Fiorina made a highly publicized last-minute endorsement of Cruz in the final days before the Florida primary, helping him come in a respectable second to Trump and keeping his White House hopes alive.
A third woman has been identified as Amanda Carpenter who denies as well

Cruz himself denies it, of course. He posted this on his Facebook page:
I want to be crystal clear: these attacks are garbage. For Donald J. Trump to enlist his friends at the National Enquirer and his political henchmen to do his bidding shows you that there is no low Donald won’t go.These smears are completely false, they’re offensive to Heidi and me, they’re offensive to our daughters, and they’re offensive to everyone Donald continues to personally attack.
Donald Trump’s consistently disgraceful behavior is beneath the office we are seeking and we are not going to follow.
But THEN there is a story which I was GOING to blog about a long time ago, but I figured there was no there there. It’s this, a Texas state police report from 2005 claiming that Heidi Cruz was a “danger to herself” as she was found sitting aside an Austin expressway. Jilted?
Trump, a longtime friend of the Enquirer’s CEO, says he has nothing to do with the Enquirer story. And actually, I believe him. He’s ahead. Why attack Cruz now? Or was their little spat about their wives what prompted this?
So far, a lot of speculation and nothing solid. But in the weirdest of campaign seasons, who knows if it is possible?
