Please tell me why we permit Cruz and Rubio to play pretend candidates?
Neither are eligible. In fact there is doubt Cruz is eligible to be a senator. Not only is he ineligible he is a criminal impersonator misrepresenting himself. That is a crime and he must be arrested.
Anyone ignoring this fact is guilty of misprision of felony…a serious federal crime.
This would include any public servant who is made aware of this fact.
