Yahoo News actually asked Heidi Cruz, the wife of presidential candidate Ted Cruz, her opinion on the Internet meme that Cruz is actually the Zodiac Killer who terrorized San Francisco in the late 60’s and early 70’s.
The joke received renewed attention when Larry Wilmore worked it into one of his jokes at the White House Correspondents Dinner Saturday. “Well, I’ve been married to him for 15 years, and I know pretty well who he is, so it doesn’t bother me at all. There’s a lot of garbage out there,” Cruz told Yahoo’s Hunter Walker on the trail in Indiana.
While Ted Cruz has never personally denied committing the murders, considering he was born in 1970, he would have had to be a particularly determined fetus to carry out the Zodiac Killer’s earliest murders.
