Less than 24 hours ago, GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz announced he hired a new national spokesman after ousting his previous spokesman Rick Tyler in controversy.
However, the Cruz campaign may be headed for another controversy after not properly vetting its new national spokesman – a former party leader who was once caught hiring a deportation-dodging, illegal immigrant to work at the Republican Party.
Cruz’s new spokesman Ron Nehring, who served as the previous chairman of the California Republican Party, was “busted” for hiring an illegal immigrant who had been ordered to be deported by the Federal government, had failed to complete an I-9 form, and even sued the U.S. government in a multi-million-dollar wrongful arrest lawsuit. Nehring himself had directly hired the illegal immigrant to serve as chief executive of the Republican Party and to run party operations, including the handling of confidential information.
The illegal immigrant hire wasn’t Nehring’s only snafu.
