    Having one's record blocked in this political atmosphere, is a sure sign of corruption.

    Who freaking cares if he used an escort service?

    I just want to know if he ever used any of the same escorts Hillary did...

    The word is that regardless of the restraining order being lifted or not, he intends on posting the records on line, and supposedly already has the doc's in an online lock box....in case he gets whacked.

    I don't really care if Ted or anyone else has used this or any other service..... that subject is between him and his wife.... :oops:
    That being said, if one does that kind of stuff.... while declaring themselves to be a strong man of christian faith...it is a huge moral defect and should be weighed against their elect-ability by the people.

    I don't care if he used an escort service or not. I think @Yard Dart captured the essence of this lack of disclosure

    It's not him I am worried about, it's his wife. He is nothing more than a pawn. As far as using an Escort Service...means nothing to me positive or negative. I really don't care. However, the fact that he is blocking it means he thinks there is something there that can hurt him at least politically. When one chooses to become a politician one loses the right to privacy and your life it open to the public.

    Normally, I could care less if someone uses an escort service....that applies even to politicians. The problem is that he puts himself out there as this pious evangelical who makes people think he shared a cup with Jesus at the last supper. My goodness, listen to his speeches....bible this, morals that......he sounds like Jimmy Swaggart. Then he uses hookers?

    Why does it matter? Because he will lie to us the same way if elected. Quite frankly, if he would be someone who comes out and says, 'yeah, I tore up half of Ashley Madison's female client list' I would at least know he is truthful; and that concern would be moot. Instead he doubled down with the faithful to his wife line.

    Again, if he wasn't such a hypocrite I would care less. But when he wears a flag as a cape and has a bible for a club I expect him to be as he presents himself.....not what he is: Lyin' Ted.

    Since you already assume he is a hypocrite, I still don't quite understand why you are so interested in the info.

    But then, when one supports a batshit crazy, I guess they need all the ammo they can get.

    Are you saying his preacher aura combined with his alleged use of hookers doesn't make him a hypocrite?

    Again, I could care less about someone (man or woman) using a hooker. Simply do not care. Enjoy.

    My support of someone you think is "batshit crazy" has no bearing on whether on not Lyin' Ted is a hypocrite. One does not need to support Mr. Trump to see the hypocrisy of pretending acting like a penticostal preacher and then using hookers; then lying about it. Next thing you know he will be passing the offering plate to pay his Ashley Madison bill.

    I wish he would go ahead and drop the information now.

    Agree. I see no point in delay, all that does is raise more mud.

    And why do we even believe the info is accurate? I could sign my name Ted Cruz, and who would be the wiser?

    Where there's smoke, there's fire. Nobody goes to a lot of trouble to block access to information that isn't there.

    I would. It's no body else's business.

    There is something 'hinky' here IMO...if he did in fact use one(or maybe his wife did?, or they had certain preferences that included more people), blocking release of the info is irrelevant/stupid, because it's public opinion they're trying to woo, and trying to hide something like that might actually be worse to his campaign than whatever the records show. I'm an undecided voter, and I am suspicious when someone claims to be trustworthy when they're trying to hide stuff. Best course of action IMO is just to come out and say what others here have said, it's not our business, it's between him and his wife. And the escort service. And the credit card company ;)

    Doesn't matter... it's the same with Clintons information, trumps court documents and Bernie's FBI records... everyone running has questionable data hidden away somewhere... it's politics to tear your opponents down...
