Unforgiving? Cruz Campaign Yanks Ad Over Actress' Porn Past

Well, that's awkward. The Ted Cruz campaign, trying to build support among true conservatives, released the following ad attacking Marco Rubio.

Turns out that one of the actresses in the spot is Amy Lindsay. While Ms. Lindsay's past work does include TV series like "Star Trek: Voyager" and "Pacific Blue," the majority of her credits on IMDB are things like "MILF," "The Erotic Traveler," "Insatiable Obsession," "Femalien II" and "Deviant Whores."

That sort of thing might be fine and well in a Democratic primary. It might have even been OK for a libertarian in a Republican primary. But not for Mr. Cruz, who's trying to keep the support of evangelical Christians, a demographic that undoubtedly frowns upon porn, no matter how soft-core some claim it to be.

So the Cruz campaign yanked the ad, telling NBC News that the casting company did not properly vet the actress and "Had the campaign known of her full filmograpy, we obviously would not have let her appear in the ad."

Seems a missed opportunity for Cruz to point out that one of the main points of the New Testament is forgiveness of sins.
