Ted Cruz to John Kerry: Are U.S. taxpayer dollars going to help defeat Benjamin Netanyahu?

ted-cruzOn Tuesday, I wrote that a five-man team from Obama’s 2012 campaign went to Israel for the purpose of defeating Benjamin Netanyahu in that country’s upcoming election.  One of the organizations partnering with the group spearheading that effort is the U.S. State Department.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, responded to the news with a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry wondering if, in fact, U.S. taxpayer dollars are being used to undermine Israel’s election.

Last November, Cruz declared the era of Obama’s lawlessness is “over.”  It seems, however, the regime is just getting warmed up.
