Katrina Pierson is national spokesperson for Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump who has now been linked to a sex scandal involving Ted Cruz.

Pierson, a Republican activist, was mentioned in a National Enquirer story claiming extramarital affairs by her boss’s 2016 rival Ted Cruz. Neither Pierson nor the Cruz camp has commented on the rumors.

Born to a single mother, Pierson was given up for adoption, but her mother later changed her mind. After a rocky start to adulthood, Pierson became active in Republican and Tea Party politics, at one point even gaining the endorsement of Rafael Cruz, Ted’s father. Like Trump, Pierson is known for controversial remarks, including calling the 2012 major party nominees “half-breeds.” h/t theheavy
