Cruz jokes af­ter porn liked on Twit­ter feed

Northern News (Kirkland Lake) - - WORLD NEWS -

WASH­ING­TON — Sen. Ted Cruz says an aide was re­spon­si­ble for the “like” that caused a porno­graphic post to ap­pear on Cruz’s Twit­ter feed overnight. The Texas Repub­li­can said Tues­day that sev­eral aides have ac­cess to the ac­count and that one in­ad­ver­tently posted the pornog­ra­phy. Cruz told re­porters that “it was a staffing is­sue and it was in­ad­ver­tent. It was a mis­take. It was not a de­lib­er­ate ac­tion.” “Lik­ing” — which only peo­ple with ac­cess to a Twit­ter ac­count are able to do — causes it to ap­pear on one’s feed. Cruz said “this is not how I en­vi­sioned wak­ing up this morn­ing” and joked that if he knew how much at­ten­tion he would re­ceive he might have posted pornog­ra­phy dur­ing last year’s In­di­ana pri­mary.
