High profile Mormon Glenn Beck's defamation suit may seriously damage Ted Cruz's campaign

Bad enough Ted Cruz is getting supported from a high profile Mormon like Glenn Beck which Evangelicals consider a religious cult. 
Too boot, Beck’s wild accusations has resulted in a defamation lawsuit that won’t go away.   

AOL News reports Glenn Beck has been one of Ted Cruz's most vocal supporters, but a defamation suit a Boston Marathon bombing victim filed against the broadcaster might give Cruz some problems.

The conservative radio host endorsed Cruz earlier this year and has frequently made appearances to support his campaign.

He's also been fighting a defamation suit from a victim in the 2013 attack whom he accused of helping carry out the attack.

Now, court documents The Daily Beast reported on show the case might not be settled out of court and could eventually go to trial.

On his program, Beck accused Saudi national Abdulrahman Alharbi of being involved in the attacks and criticized authorities for releasing Alharbi after questioning.
