The Ted Cruz campaign hurriedly pulled an anti-Rubio TV ad yesterday when media outlets reported that an actress in the spot was a soft porn star.
In the 30 second ad, “Conservatives Anonymous,” a mock therapy group sits in a circle and discusses how disappointed they are in a candidate who has reversed himself after going to Washington. At the end, a new member walks in wearing a Marco Rubio t-shirt.
The ad is clever but it is the blonde woman with one line who has stolen the spotlight. Looking at another group member, actress Amy Lindsay says, “Maybe you should vote for more than just a pretty face next time.”
Lindsay has been in several adult films, including “Kinky Sex Club, Carnal Wishes,” “Sex Sent Me to the ER” and “Insatiable Desires.” Buzzfeed first reported her porn past.
The Cruz campaign immediately went into damage control. “The actress responded to an open casting call,” Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier said in a statement to The Daily Caller. “She passed her audition and got the job. Unfortunately, she was not vetted by the casting company. Had the campaign known of her full filmography, we obviously would not have let her appear in the ad. The campaign is taking the ad down and will replace it with a different commercial.”
