Ted Cruz, a man of many identities?


Who is Ted Cruz — the Texas senator and candidate for the Republican nomination for president? Three theories are included below.  

I) Ted Cruz as the Zodiac Killer:

The evidence is staggering that Ted Cruz is the notorious serial killer, who terrorized northern California in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Question 19 of a recent Public Policy Poll asked if people think he is, or nah.

The results:

“We find that 38 percent of Florida voters think it's possible that Ted Cruz is the Zodiac Killer. 10 percent say he for sure is, and another 28 percent say that they are just not sure. Cruz is exonerated from being a toddler serial killer by 62 percent of the Sunshine State populace," the report said. 

Here is some potential evidence for the charges:

Exhibit A) His likeness

Exhibit B) Sen. Cruz's affinity for weapons 

Exhibit C) Cryptic messages

II) Ted Cruz as Kevin from The Office:

But is he nice enough though?
