Ted Cruz Does Not Want To Ban Contraceptives

Sen. Ted Cruz's college roommate made some rather unusual (ok gross) allegations about the 2016 Republican presidential candidate on Wednesday.

Craig Mazin, a successful screenwriter who lived with Cruz during his freshman year at Princeton, slammed the GOP hopeful on Twitter for once defending a sex toy ban, according to Elite Daily.

In 2007, when Cruz served as a Texas solicitor general, his legal team published a 76-page brief in support of a state law prohibiting the sale of adult toys in Texas.

The brief claimed the ban of sales protected Texas citizens' "public morals" by "discouraging prurient interests in sexual gratification, combating the commercial sale of sex, and protecting minors," according to Mother Jones.

Cruz's team used the brief to defend their case in court, but ultimately ended up losing in 2008.

This isn't a political battle that Cruz often touts, but it may be one some 2016 voters are concerned about since Mazin's tweet has been retweeted over 30,000 times.

Ted Cruz's college roommate slams him for supporting sex toy ban
As a freshman, I would get into senior parties because I was Ted's roommate. OUT OF PITY. He was that widely loathed. It's his superpower.
Second memory: Ted would talk about the women he thought he had a shot with. Pretty sure he remained untouched by a woman those four years.
Ted would leave a greasy film on everything. My friend Erik dubbed the substance "Cruhz," rhymes with "scuzz." Now there's Cruhz on my TV.
Getting emails blaming me for not smothering Ted Cruz in his sleep in 1988. What kind of monster do you think I am? A really prescient one?
My freshman year college roommate Ted Cruz is going to be elected Senator. In case I hadn't made it clear, he's also a huge asshole.
