I must confess that the very last GOP presidential candidate that I expected to be linked to a sex scandal would be Ted Cruz. This doesn't really qualify as one, but it will suffice in a pinch. When the Cruz campaign discovered that an actress that they had cast to appear in one of their ads had done some porn, they immediately pulled it down. The actress, Amy Lindsay, could hardly be described as a hardcore porn star. In fact, she has a fairly respectable career history, one that includes a few television appearances.
Lindsay graduated from the University of Texas Austin with a degree in journalism and a minor in Drama. After working in public relations and marketing, she moved to LA to pursue an acting career. And, along with the conventional work, Lindsay also starred in films with titles such as “Kinky Sex Club,” “Milf,” “
I was unable to find either a current age, or date-of-birth, for Lindsay which is hardly surprising when you consider that she is an actress. But, considering that she graduated from college in 1995, it is probably safe to assume that she is somewhere north of thirty-five and her days of working in porn are over. And she does claim to be a pro-gun and pro-life Republican, albeit one who supports gay marriage. What is it with these retired porn stars who support Republican presidential candidates anyway? In 2012, Jenna Jameson publicly endorsed Mitt Romney saying that "When you're rich, you want a Republican in office." Here is the pulled campaign ad starring Lindsay:
