Washington (CNN)Texas Sen. Ted Cruz told reporters Tuesday it was a "staffing issue" that led to a pornographic video being "liked" by his Twitter account -- which has since been removed.
"It was a staffing issue and it was inadvertent, it was a mistake, it was not a deliberate action," Cruz said, according to The Washington Post. He added: "We're dealing with it internally but it was a mistake, it was not malicious conduct."
An aide to Cruz confirmed the comments to CNN, adding that there would be an internal effort to figure out who was responsible.
Cruz declined to comment when asked by CNN about the incident.

He needs to identify the staff person responsible and fire them.
Eh? Did they remove his Twitter account or the video...or the “Like”?
Well, it IS CNN.
Okay, who in his position would give the password to his account to someone? That is just asking for trouble. Not very good judgement.
I don’t even like Ted Cruz, but this is a Nothing Burger.
I won’t click on CNN. I am ignorant on how Twitter works. Someone watched a video and then liked it from Ted Cruz Twitter account?
Is that what happened?
Was hoping the vid was Amanda Carpenter giving Cruz an airstart.
Says it was a mistake. Does he mean it was a mistake to “like” it? I still get the feeling Cruz is a perv.
I’m sure people who send out tweets and/or emails of their junk will say it was a mistake.
“It was a staffing issue and it was inadvertent,
it was a mistake, it was not a deliberate action,”
....it was not a deliberate action,” ....
It was both a mistake and a deliberate action. It couldn’t
have happened had someone not made the coding.
Depends on the video. If it was Backdoor Sluts 9, it’s pretty serious. Backdoor Sluts 9 makes Crotch Capers 3 look like Naughty Nurses 2.
Most of these guys have staffers that manage their social media. It doesn’t surprise me at all.
"This is not how I envisioned waking up this morning," Cruz said. "Although I will say that if I had known that this would trend so quickly, perhaps we should have posted something like this back during the Indiana primary."

Laz? Did you get a new account?
Ironically, the video depicted some pretty sloppy staff work.
We’d be so lost without you.
That’s how it’s done with most celebrities. I’m in “the business,” and have published Facebook updates and Tweets for some famous people.
But, his email also showed on the Ashley Madison website hack and there are women that told the National Enquirer they had affairs with him. Where there is smoke, there is often fire.
