Nevada Rep. Horsford acknowledges he had extramarital affair

LAS VEGAS (AP) Democratic Congressman Steven Horsford of Nevada on Saturday acknowledged he had an extramarital affair with a woman who said the on-and-off relationship began in 2009 before ending last September.

Horsford, 47, in a statement released to The Associated Press responded to a report by the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he had an affair with Gabriela Linder, who previously had shared her story on podcasts and Twitter posts through a pseudonym before she was interviewed Friday by the newspaper.

It is true that I had a previous consensual relationship with another adult outside of my marriage, over the course of several years, Horsford said the statement. Im deeply sorry to all of those who have been impacted by this very poor decision, most importantly my wife and family. Out of concern for my family during this challenging time, I ask that our privacy is respected.

...

A spokeswoman for Horsford indicated he does not plan to resign, as at least one Republican opponent suggested.

4. Yes, but it's only eeeeeeeeevil when a Democrat does it...

I joke but, unfortunately, it's the truth. Despite their veneer of "values," the main moral guide for Republicans is selfishness, so their misbehavior is shrugged-off as "well, that's the way humans behave, even if it's regrettable." OTOH, Democrats are supposed to stand for ethical behavior rather than self-serving, so any steps off the straight-and-narrow will be punished without mercy. Do you think a Republican would have resigned under circumstances similar to Katie Hill's?

3. And I say "So what?" People have been screwing around since before time began...

No, it is not an admirable trait, but every relationship is different and not all are based on sexual fidelity. In fact, many seem to be based on the lack of it.

Unless there is something harmful happening, it's just nobody's damn business.

5. If you want to run for public office you have to cut this shit out

There is a public trust, you cant do this and expect to keep it.
