Daily Beast: Breitbart Was Offered Cruz Mistress Video But Refused

The National Enquirer “story” about alleged affairs between Presidential candidate Ted Cruz and five women has been discussed widely for over a day now.  According to the Gateway Pundit, a video has also been shopped around to different news agencies.  Evidence of affairs shown in the video is apparently quite thin, but The Daily Beast indicated one surprising response to the video:

Breitbart News, the notoriously Trump-friendly conservative outlet, was also pitched the story of Cruz’s extramarital affairs, according to a source close to the publication. That source said an operative allied with Marco Rubio—but not associated with his official campaign—showed the publication a compilation video of Cruz and a woman other than his wife coming out of the Capitol Grille restaurant and a hotel on Tuesdays and Thursdays. But the outlet opted not to report on the video, which demonstrated no direct evidence of an affair.

This is surprising, because Breitbart News has been accused of some shameless pandering to the Trump campaign recently.  Is passing on this video a sign that Breitbart has learned its lesson?  Or perhaps it’s just evidence that they are legitimately more objective than thought by some?  Either way, it’s a refreshing turn of events.

    There’s more to this than any of us know. These rumors have been around for almost a year. Maybe longer. I heard it first from a local GOP chairman last fall. Supposedly, the families of the women Cruz was allegedly banging were fully in the know. Cruz’ infidelities aren’t really new news in Washington circles. Those behaviors are fairly commonplace in DC.

    At first, I dismissed these rumors as BS. Not so much anymore. There could be some truth to it and yet it could be total bullshit. Either way, I don’t think this will go away soon.

    • Interesting. I wasn’t in on that, but I’m quite sure about the behavior being commonplace. That’s one reason why I’m not thrilled about Cruz’ wife being a bigshot at Goldman Sachs and a political operative herself. Call me sexist, but in my view, that jacks up the likelihood of BOTH of them being affair-monkeys a hundredfold.

    Please allow me to post the video that was included in the “Gateway Pundit” article you linked, in case some readers didn’t bother to go there.
    If nothing else,this proves Donald Trump did not release the information on Cruz. It was out there swimming in the media streams since early February.
