Cruz Porn Actress Defends Herself to Jake Tapper: ‘I’m a Middle-Class Working Girl’

vlcsnap-2016-02-12-17h26m42s210The softcore porn actress who appeared in a Ted Cruz campaign ad appeared on CNN’s The Lead with Jake Tapper Friday to defend her actions and defend Cruz.

“It was a gig but… I knew it was supporting a Republican candidate, which is definitely what i’m doing. And I thought the writing was smart, I thought it was snappy,” Amy Lindsay said.

Host Jake Tapper asked about the Cruz campaign distancing themselves from her as they try to win the largely evangelical state of South Carolina. “Is that is unchristian for them to have done?” Tapper asked.

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

Lindsay said that Cruz was still in the running for her vote. “I was speaking from the heart.. I did believe in the message and I put it out there.

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