OOPS! Latest Ted Cruz Campaign Ad Features… a Porn Star?

Amy Lindsay and Ron Jeremy

 

You just know that someone’s getting fired for this.

Amy Lindsay, the actress featured in films such as Kinky Sex Club, Milf, Carnal Wishes and Sex Sent Me to the ER starred in Sen. Ted Cruz ‘s latest campaign. The ad is entitled “Conservatives Anonymous”, in which Lindsay says, “Maybe you should vote for more than just a pretty face next time.”

Once the identity of the actress was discovered, the ad was immediately pulled.

In a statement sent to the Daily Caller , Cruz campaign national press secretary Catherine Frazier wrote:

“The actress responded to an open casting call.  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.”

Ron Jeremy even weighed in with his opinion saying, “porn stars are liberal in nature” and that it was “kind of exciting” for a porn star to be featured in the advertisement. Jeremy  doesn’t think Cruz should be embarrassed by the ad.

In an interview with Buzzfeed,  Amy Lindsay emphasized that she did not do hardcore porn and that she also appeared in non-erotic films.  Lindsay says that she thinks it is “cool” that an actor who has appeared in softcore porn could also appear in Cruz’s ad.

“In a cool way, then hey, then it’s not just some old, white Christian bigot that people want to say, ‘It could be, maybe, a cool kind of open-minded woman like me,’” she said of people supporting Cruz.

Lindsay first said that the person at the campaign who hired her “absolutely knew everything that I had done.”  She later walked that statement back saying,

“I have clearly talked to the filmmakers and stuff and just to be clear, I assumed that they knew, but none of the filmmakers or the casting director knew about my complete filmography in the past that you’re talking about, so I was wrong in that statement.”

Lindsay said she is currently deciding whether to support Cruz or Donald Trump.
