Palin Accuses Cruz Of Lying About Not Seeking Campaign Cash From Lobbyists

AP

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin accused Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) of lying by claiming his campaign did not fundraise from lobbyists or special interests. Palin, who endorsed Donald Trump, posted on her Facebook a link to a conservative blog that has what looks to be a screenshot of a Cruz campaign email.

“I will never get — nor do I want — money from D.C. lobbyists or the special interest billionaires,” the Cruz email says, according to the blog’s screenshot. The conservative blog compares the email to a list of Cruz’s top donors, culled from Open Secrets, that includes various conservative political groups, investment banks, hedge funds and D.C law firms.

With the link, Palin wrote, “My oh my. Why must campaigns lie.”

Before she endorsed Trump, Palin was a vocal supporter of Cruz.
