Senator Ted Cruz would have been chilling in Cancun on the beach with his new mullet if it weren’t for the pesky amateur detectives on social media…
Word got out about the ultra Conservative lawmaker after he was Busted boarding a flight to Cancun, Mexico.
Ordinarily that wouldn’t be an issue if thousands of people in Cruz’s district weren’t in the dark, cold, without water, and even some dying.
Cruz acknowledged he was on the flight but now says his plan was to turn right around and come back.
The Senator says he was simply dropping his kids off with their friends for a quick trip.
Here is his statement: “This has been an infuriating week for Texans. The greatest state in the greatest country in the world has been without power. We have food lines, gas lines, and people sleeping at the neighbors’ houses. Our homes are freezing and our lights are out. Like millions of Texans, our family lost heat and power too.
“With school cancelled for the week, our girls asked to take a trip with friends. Wanting to be a good dad, I flew down with them last night and am flying back this afternoon. My staff and I are in constant communication with state and local leaders to get to the bottom of what happened in Texas. We want our power back, our water on, and our homes warm. My team and I will continue using all our resources to keep Texans informed and safe.”
