Cruz Walked Out on Castro

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) walked out of Nelson Mandela's memorial service when Cuban President Raul Castro gave a speech, ABC News reports.

Said a spokeswoman: "Sen. Cruz very much hopes that Castro learns the lessons of Nelson Mandela. For decades, Castro has wrongly imprisoned and tortured countless innocents. Just as Mandela was released after 27 years in prison, Castro should finally release his political prisoners. He should hold free elections, and once and for all, set the Cuban people free."
