CHARLESTON, S.C., Feb. 12 (UPI) -- The campaign for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz quickly pulled a TV ad Thursday after just a few hours when they found out one of the stars of the commercial appeared in softcore porn films.

The ad targeted Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and was called "Conservatives Anonymous." It featured a therapy group talking about how they were fooled by Rubio. The actress in question tells one of the others in the group, "Maybe you should vote for more than just a pretty face next time,"

Actress Amy Lindsay describes herself as a Christian conservative and her resume includes Animal Lust, Co-Ed Confidential, Insatiable Desires, Secrets of a Chambermaid and Carnal Wishes.

"The actress responded to an open casting call," Cruz communications director Rick Tyler told Politico in a statement. "She passed her audition and got the job. Unfortunately, she was not vetted by the casting company. Had the campaign known of her full filmography, we obviously would not have let her appear in the ad. The campaign is taking the ad down and will replace it with a different commercial."

Lindsay, who said she is supporting either Cruz or Donald Trump, tweeted her disappointment:

Though the video was pulled, it has popped up all over the internet, including YouTube.
