One message Ted Cruz no longer approves of is a campaign ad that featured a softcore porn actress.

Prior to appearing in Cruz's "Conservatives Anonymous" commercial targeting Marco Rubio, Amy Lindsay had parts in Erotic Confessions, Carnal Wishes, Secrets of a Chambermaid, and Insatiable Desires. In an interview with BuzzFeed News, Lindsay, a self-described conservative Christian and Republican, said she's never been in any XXX films, and thought everyone involved in the commercial knew about her previous credits. Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler told BuzzFeed News Lindsay went to an open casting call and was "not vetted by the production company" after getting the job. "Had the campaign known of her full filmography, we obviously would not have let her appear in the ad," he said.

"Conservatives Anonymous" is being yanked from the air, he said, and will be replaced with another commercial. As for Lindsay, she told BuzzFeed News she was trying to decide if she wanted to support Cruz or Donald Trump, but later tweeted she was "extremely disappointed" by the Cruz campaign pulling the ad.
