Your Lies Cost Lives: Houston Chronicle Absolutely Destroys Ted Cruz in Column Calling for Him to Resign
Ted Cruz may not be a very popular man, but he is a very intelligent man. He attended Princeton University before earning a law degree from Harvard. That education certainly should have helped him realize that Donald Trump’s election fraud case was not a valid one.
Still, Cruz is an ambitious man and thought that joining the fight might help his political future. But that was before a mob of angry Trump supporters mobbed the Capitol and killed a police officer. There are now many calls for Cruz to resign including one from his hometown paper, The Houston Chronicle.
The editorial board wrote that Cruz, “knew exactly what he was doing, what he was risking and who he was inciting as he stood on the Senate floor Wednesday and passionately fed the farce of election fraud even as a seething crowd of believers was being whipped up by President Trump a short distance away.”

The Chronicle piece continued:
“Serving as a U.S. senator requires working constructively with colleagues to get things done. Not angering them by voting against Hurricane Sandy relief, which jeopardized Congressional support for Texas’ relief after Harvey. Not staging a costly government shutdown to repeal the Affordable Care Act in 2013 that cost the economy billions. Not collecting more enemies than friends in your own party, including the affable former House Speaker John Boehner who famously remarked: ‘I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.'”
The editors closed, “We’re done with the drama. Done with the opportunism. Done with the cynical scheming that has now cost American lives. Resign, Mr. Cruz, and deliver Texas from the shame of calling you our senator.”
