Ted Cruz’s Father Blames Hackers For ‘Pornographic’ Facebook Post

Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) father, Rafael Cruz, issued an apology Sunday evening for what he described as a “pornographic picture” that was posted on his personal Facebook page. The elder Cruz, a pastor and popular conservative speaker, blamed the incident on hackers.

“Someone hacked my account and posted a pornographic picture on my Facebook. I have already deleted it and sent a report to Facebook. I sincerely regret this and apologize for this incident, which occurred without my knowledge or consent,” Cruz wrote.

He did not describe the picture in question.
