"So I guess my doppelgänger is @tedcruz?" wrote Sweet. "Guess I better cancel the @Stryper tour so I can focus on my campaign."

The Stryper mystery is only the latest dustup for Cruz, whose identity has prompted some captivating conspiracy theories. In addition to lingering concerns over whether he's the Zodiac killer, Cruz has also never addressed the #LipGate controversy surrounding the mysterious speck of matter that spontaneously generated upon his lip during a Republican debate earlier this month. 

And when will he address those accusations of actually being Robert Kardashian and Grandpa Munster?

Eh, just roll with it.
