Why Princeton Cannot Stay Silent on Sen. Ted Cruz ‘92

Excerpt: Sen. Ted Cruz ’92 (R-Texas), one of Princeton’s most prominent alumni, was an active and willing participant in former President Donald Trump’s voter-fraud disinformation campaign that disproportionately targeted Black and brown Americans, seeking to discount their votes in an effort to overturn an election deemed by many officials as the most secure in American history. It was this effort that culminated in a day of white supremacist violence that will live in infamy in our nation’s history. Cruz’s hands are all over this fraudulent effort. We call on President Eisgruber to acknowledge the racist nature of this voter-fraud disinformation campaign and to explicitly condemn Cruz for his role in it.
