Trump Threatens to Sue Ted Cruz for ‘Voter Fraud’ in Iowa

Republican front-runner Donald Trump threatened Wednesday to sue Iowa Republican caucus winner Ted Cruz.

During an interview on Boston Herald Radio, the Manhattan mogul accused Cruz of committing voter fraud in order to win the Iowa Republican caucus. Trump hedged his accusation on the controversy stemming from a Cruz staffer misinterpreting a report from CNN — that staffer went on to say that Ben Carson was suspending his campaign.

That, Trump said, equated to voter fraud.

“One of the most disgusting things I’ve ever seen. They said he was quitting the race and to vote for him,” Trump said.

“It’s a total voter fraud when you think of it and he picked up a lot of those votes and that’s why the polls were so wrong, because of that,” he added. “I couldn’t understand why the polls were wrong.”

When asked by the show’s host whether or not he planned to pursue legal action against the Texas senator, Trump answered in the affirmative.

“One of the most disgusting things I’ve ever seen.”

“I probably will; what he did is unthinkable. He said the man has left the race and he said it during the caucus,” the billionaire businessman said. “And then when the clarification was put out by Ben Carson saying it’s untrue, they got the statement and they didn’t put it out.”

During the interview, Trump also blasted Cruz for his campaign’s controversial mailer to Iowans over the weekend that claimed registered voters were in some sort of “Voter Violation.”

“He did another thing which was almost as bad. He put a voter violation certificate. I don’t know if you got to see that and it looked just like it was sent by a government. It talked about you’re in violation. It says voter violation up top on very official-looking stationery. The way you clear it up is go and vote for Cruz,” Trump said. “The whole thing is incredible.”

Toward the end of the interview, Trump reiterated that he believes Cruz is a “nasty guy” — an insult he often uses against Cruz.

Cruz has, however, apologized for his campaign’s mix-up but not for the “Voter Violation” mailer.

    Donald Trump should of been the winner in “Iowa”. The polls were not wrong! Ben Carson dropping out at the last minute and the lie he indorses Cruz. Those deceiving mailers always fool people too. I am glad Mr. Trump is addressing these issue, and I always thought liberal Democrats played that game.

    I hope Trump does sue Cruz because he needs it. What was Cruz doing sending out mailers to possible voters about telling them they would be in” voter violation” what violation? To clear it you had to vote for Cruz I wonder who came up with such nonsense. I wonder how many registered voters actually believed such claptrap? To me its like threatening someone about who they vote for. Can you imagine what Cruz will do if he ever gets in the White House I know one thing he will do he will he will raise the number HIB’s to bring in as many foreign workers as he can to take all of the jobs from US workers he can get away with. He said at one time that he wanted to raise the number 500 percent over what was already being allowed in. You wonder just who is giving him millions of dollars to put him in the White House that intends to do all of this damage to the US worker???

    Indeed the Cruz campaign has seen fit to partake in underhanded electoral chicanery.

    Trump needs to focus his attention on the working men and women, fathers and mothers who are the backbone of this country.
