A newspaper recently called Sen. Ted Cruz the “same senator who once supported a ban on sex toys.” Is that a fact? Gardner Selby of the Politifact Texas fact-checking team has the answer

The story in the New York Post was sparked by recent activity on Cruz’s Twitter account, where a sexually explicit video was liked. The ‘like’ – a mistake which was blamed on a Cruz aide – was quickly removed and renounced by the Senator, but not before the entire country learned of it.

Before he became a senator, Cruz was a private lawyer, and served as Texas’ solicitor general, defending the state against challenges to its laws.
