Heidi Cruz engaged in some stellar verbal gymnastics on the campaign trail this morning, presumably to avoid implicating herself when the truth finally does come out. All of which is to say, Heidi Cruz declined to deny that Ted Cruz is the Zodiac Killer.

Speaking to Yahoo News, Heidi was prompted to respond to the persistent internet murmurings of her husband’s (real) secret identity as the (real) Zodiac Killer. Instead of telling the cameras that, no, her husband is not the same cryptogram-loving mass murderer once chased by Jake Gyllnehaal—she said this:

Well, I’ve been married to him for 15 years, and I know pretty well who he is, so it doesn’t bother me at all. There’s a lot of garbage out there.

I know pretty well who he is... It doesn’t bother me at all.

So how does Heidi feel about the fact that her husband is constantly accused of being the Zodiac Killer?

Heidi Cruz is well aware of the man she married. Heidi Cruz knows.
