Ted Cruz's college roommate slams him for supporting sex toy ban
Sen. Ted Cruz's college roommate made some rather unusual (ok gross) allegations about the 2016 Republican presidential candidate on Wednesday.
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.
