Cruz Renounces Canadian Citizenship
If only this much scrutiny was given to Obama.

After it was revealed on Monday that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) may still be a Canadian citizen because he was born there (to an American mother), Cruz promptly renounced his Canadian citizenship.
On Tuesday, Cruz said the talk surrounding his birth certificate, which he also released this week, and citizenship status was part of “silly season” in an interview with CNN that will air on Sunday.
The Dallas Morning News reported that Cruz may have dual citizenship since those born in Canada are Canadian citizens, unless their parents are diplomats.
“Assuming that is true, then sure, I will renounce any Canadian citizenship,” Cruz said in a statement. “Nothing against Canada, but I’m an American by birth and as a U.S. senator; I believe I should be only an American.”
