Soft-Core Porn Actress Responds To Cancelled Ted Cruz Campaign Ad

The soft-core porn actress who starred in the now-debunked Ted Cruz campaign ad defended her role in the Texas senator’s commercial this week, saying she was just trying to work.

After the Ted Cruz campaign pulled the ad starring Amy Lindsay, the former soft-core porn actress tweeted out her disappointment and followed up with a CNN interview saying she was just trying to make a living.

“I have no ill will towards Ted Cruz right now. He’s got a job to do. And I’m a middle-class working girl and I had a job to do.”

The Cruz campaign ad, titled “Conservatives Anonymous,” was targeted at Marco Rubio and features Lindsay in a group therapy session discussing her disappointment at having supported the former Florida senator.

“Maybe you should vote for more than just a pretty face next time.”

The Cruz campaign pulled the commercial from YouTube after discovering Lindsay had previously starred in several soft-core porn videos, including Animal Lust, Co-Ed Confidential, Carnal Wishes, and Secrets of a Chambermaid.

She also has a journalism degree from the University of Texas at Austin, and has appeared in more mainstream shows, like Star Trek: Voyager.

Lindsay doesn’t seem upset her Cruz campaign ad was taken down, and even told CNN’s Jake Tapper she didn’t have any hard feelings.

“I don’t think it’s un-Christian. I think this is politics as usual. It was done in a snap moment. Someone’s got to make a decision, and sometimes it’s just better to take it down.”

A Republican Christian conservative herself, Lindsay says she thought the Cruz campaign ad producers knew about her colorful film history before hiring her. She told BuzzFeed she thought it was cool a former soft-core porn actress could also represent the Texas senator.

“It could be, maybe, a cool kind of open-minded woman like me.”

Lindsay got the gig in the normal way. She responded to an open casting call, passed her audition, and was given the role. It appears, however, the casting company didn’t fully research her film background, Cruz communications director Rick Tyler told Politico.

“It happened that one of the actresses who was there had a more colorful film history than we were aware.”

Lindsay says she’s still deciding whether to vote for Ted Cruz or Donald Trump.

Meanwhile, a new Cruz campaign ad targeted on South Carolina attacks Donald Trump and accuses the billionaire of being a sleaze.

It focuses on an elderly woman who almost lost her home in Atlantic City when the local government tried to seize it using eminent domain. The ad accuses Trump of bankrolling politicians who steamroll the little guy.

The move comes as both Cruz and Trump prepare for the South Carolina primary Feb. 20.

The latest polls show Trump with a commanding 40 percent lead over second place Cruz, with 20 percent.

Cruz is hoping his attack on Trump’s support of eminent domain will resonate with Republican voters in South Carolina, who usually believe that seizing private property is government overreach.

In a surprise move, the Texas senator broke out in Spanish this weekend during a debate with Marco Rubio, who he accused of supporting immigration amnesty.
