Politics: 'It was not me': Ted Cruz defends accidental porn like from Twitter account in bizarre CNN interview

Sen. Ted Cruz explained to CNN the reason why his Twitter account accidentally liked a pornographic tweet.

Sen. Ted Cruz sat down for a bizarre interview in which he explained at length the reason why his Twitter account accidentally liked a pornographic tweet earlier this week.

Speaking to CNN's Dana Bash on Wednesday, the Texas senator repeatedly described the incident as a "screwup" on the part of a staffer who "accidentally hit the wrong button."

"It's generated a lot of amusement, it's prompted a lot of jokes, I understand it," Cruz said, emphasizing that he was "not going to out the fella."

He added: "We have looked into it, yes, we have identified it, we pulled it down. It was an honest mistake, it wasn't malicious, it wasn't deliberate, it was a screwup."

Cruz emphasized that he was not responsible for the tweet.

"It was not me, and it's not going to happen again," he said.

Cruz also explained his advocacy during his tenure as Texas solicitor general for a Texas law that would've banned the sale of sex toys, saying it was a "stupid law" that he was obligated to defend as part of his job.

"Consenting adults should be able to do whatever they want in their bedrooms," Cruz said. "The media and the left seem obsessed with sex."

Cruz also advocated for an overhaul of the tax code, acknowledging that Senate Republicans needed to pass a bill, following the failure of healthcare reform, that could unite moderates and the right.

"That would be improvement from the status quo," Cruz said. "I hope we do a lot better. I mean, we've got an opportunity. If we come in with full expensing, if we simplify the tax code. If we cut the rates, we have an opportunity to see millions of new jobs created to really raise wages. "
