Carly Fiorina? This reveals a lot about Ted Cruz's judgment. Fiorina is the most brazenly deceitful and dishonest figure in public life today; Donald Trump is a saint by comparison.

When it was proven that the videos that showed that Planned Parenthood was selling “baby parts” was vicious, contrived, and totally false, she continued to flagrantly repeat the falsehoods. As a result, some demented guy shot up a Planned Parenthood facility, killing several people shouting, “No more baby parts!”

If inciting people to riot is a crime, shouldn't inciting peole to kill be even more so? Planned Parenthood was exonerated by a Texas grand jury but the perpetrators of the false videos were indicted instead for fraudulent behavior. How's that for poetic justice? Cruz and Fiorina are two of a kind.
