Gay Billionaire Pothead Supporting Texas Senator?

Ted Cruz, the Republican Senator of Texas, has a net worth of around $1.7 million, but that doesn't mean he doesn't need funding for his political campaigns. He has financial support from various sources, but his most wealthy supporter is Peter Thiel. If he sounds familiar, it's because he's the co-founder of PayPal. Thiel has a net worth of $1.8 billion and is one of the richest people in the world. He has even been featured in Forbes for his wild success and incredible wealth.

The thing that has been getting Thiel (and Cruz) a lot of attention is that Thiel is a gay pot-smoker, which raises a lot of questions for those who support Cruz. In fact, last year he contributed $600,000 to Cruz's run for senate, which was successful. Although it seems odd that a pot-smoking gay man would support a politician, Thiel is also a businessman.
