Rick Tyler is the former communications director for the Cruz campaign who was fired for falsely claimed that Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) stated that there are not many answers in the Bible.
Soon following his termination, Cowger Nation released a report. At the time, we believed that Tyler was potentially attempting to sabotage Sen. Ted Cruz’s campaign, after it was listed on his official Linkedin that he worked for a democratic activism organization called The Strategy Group.
While we pointed out the fact that he linked to a democratic organization on his resume, it was later revealed that he worked for another organization that assisted establishment-Republican candidates, who operated under the same name. To clarify: he listed inaccurate information on his resume. Even though his resume listing later appeared to be an error, Tyler’s motives for spreading the false information were still questionable.
I had completely forgotten about this incident, until I recently saw a news clip featuring Tyler.
Apparently, just four days after being fired from the Cruz campaign, Rick Tyler was hired as an MSNBC political analyst.
He now proudly flaunts his network on his official Facebook and Twitter accounts.

I also re-examined the real Strategy Group that Tyler legitimately worked for. Just four months prior to Tyler becoming employed by the Cruz campaign, his organization assisted Gov. John Kasich (R) in his Ohio re-election campaign.
Kasich also happened to be running against Cruz in the 2016 Republican Presidential Primary.
