(ABC News) A DePaul student was unexpectedly caught in the middle of a short-lived political scandal. Her picture was used to help spread a rumor about a presidential candidate that wasn't true.
Samantha Rivera said her phone was ringing so much it woke her up Wednesday morning. There were also texts and emails asking her if she had an affair with a presidential candidate. The journalism major at DePaul says nothing she learned in public relations classes prepared her for this.
Rivera's profile picture is at the center of an alleged sex scandal involving Republican Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz.
