Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is attempting to act more presidential in his efforts to win the White House. Unfortunately, the president he may be imitating is Bill Clinton.
According to the National Enquirer, the Texas Senator has had extramarital affairs with at least five different women.
“Private detectives are digging into at least five affairs Ted Cruz supposedly had,” the paper said. “The leaked details are an attempt to destroy what’s left of his White House campaign!”
While the National Enquirer is a sleazy tabloid, it also broke the story of former Democratic vice presidential nominee John Edward’s affair with reporter Reille Hunter back in 2007. Though, in 2008 they completely fabricated a story of Sarah Palin cheating on her husband.
The blogosphere has been consumed with theories about the identities of these five women from a description provided by the Enquirer.
Rumors have been spreading that CNN conservative correspondent and former Cruz staffer Amanda Carpenter, Carly Fiorina’s former campaign manager Sarah Isgur Flores, and even Donald Trump’s spokeswoman Katrina Pierson all had an affair with Cruz.

Drew Johnson of the Washington Times claimed that he knew about two of the affairs, and the National Enquirer’s story is totally accurate.
Allum Bokhari of Breitbart also claimed that he knew about the alleged affairs and didn’t publish them because because the owners/operators/editors of the outlet determined it was not in alignment with their political affiliations.

The story took another strange turn when it was discovered that several consultants who supported Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (R) heard about the affair months ago and tweeted about it using #TheThing. They hoped the story would drop before Super Tuesday, allowing Rubio to win and finish off Cruz.
If worst comes to worst and this story is true, Cruz can just run for president in a European country. Having five mistresses is considered a huge advantage.
