On Thursday, the Cruz campaign proudly premiered a funny new campaign attack ad against Marco Rubio featuring an AA-style meeting where a man admits that he has trust issues after voting for the candidate. A woman in the group tells the man that he should “maybe vote for more than just a pretty face” in the future.

That woman, it turns out, is a soft-core porn actress named Amy Lindsay. Lindsay thought that the company that hired her was aware of her past roles in films such as “Passion’s Desires” and “Kinky Sex Club,” but when a Buzzfield journalist reached out to the campaign for comment on the interesting casting choice, they quickly pulled the ad.

The Cruz campaign says that they made a mistake and should have better vetted the actress.

Lindsay said that she thought the directors chose her on purpose – as a way to put a new face on conservatism – but unfortunately it was simply oversight rather than ingenuity that allowed her to feature in the ad.

“In a cool way, then hey — then it’s not just some old, white Christian bigot that people want to say, ‘It could be, maybe, a cool kind of open-minded woman like me.’”

Lindsay also says she is still undecided about whether she will vote Cruz or Trump this year.
