The campaign of Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas pulled a commercial on Feb. 11 after it was revealed that an actress in the ad had appeared in soft-core porn films (video below).

The Cruz ad features a “Conservative Anonymous” group where a man complains that he voted for a conservative candidate who "cut a deal on amnesty."

“Maybe you should vote for more than just a pretty face next time,” actress Amy Lindsay replies.

Lindsay has appeared in several soft-core films, including "Kinky Sex Club," "Milf," "Carnal Wishes," "Animal Lust," "Insatiable Obsession" and "Sex Spa II," notes Mediaite.

Lindsay also appeared in a TV episode of "Star Trek: Voyager."

In response to news about Lindsay, Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler told BuzzFeed News: “The actress responded to an open casting call. She passed her audition and got the job. Unfortunately, she was not vetted by the production company. Had the campaign known of her full filmography, we obviously would not have let her appear in the ad.”

Lindsay tweeted her disappointment: "Extremely disappointed the #TedCruz campaign pulled the national television spot I had a role in... #moretocome #myvotecounts."

Before the Cruz campaign pulled the ad, Lindsay told BuzzFeed News: “In a cool way, then hey, then it’s not just some old, white Christian bigot that people want to say, 'It could be, maybe, a cool kind of open-minded woman like me.'"

Lindsay said that she thought the filmmakers and casting director of the commercial knew her "complete filmography," but that wasn't the case.

She said she plans to vote for Cruz or Donald Trump.
