Another Democratic Congressman Just Admitted to an Affair

Another Democratic member of Congress just admitted to having an extramarital affair. Representative Steven Horsford of Nevada’s 4th District adds his name to the long list of Congressmen and women who have stepped out on their marriage and betrayed the trust of the people who put him in office.

The Nevada lawmaker admitted on Friday that he and former intern Gabriela Linder had carried on an affair “over the course of several years,” according to the New York Post. He wrote in a statement to the press, “I am deeply sorry to all 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.”

News of the affair broke in April when Linder, known as “Love Jones” on her podcast “Mistress for Congress,” began discussing the relationship.

According to both parties, the two met in 2009 and began seeing each other on a regular basis. At the time, Horsford was the Nevada state Senate Majority leader and the first African American to have the title.

Linder was an intern, but not for Horsford or anyone in his office. Instead, she worked for Senator Harry Reid. She was a 21-year-old senior at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He was 36.

The two remained as sexual partners until 2019 when Horsford finally told Linder that he couldn’t leave his wife for her, especially not with an election coming up. After all, he had to play the part of a family and god-fearing man.

Linder told the Review-Journal, “I decided I can’t wait, deserved more, and didn’t want to be that person anymore. And I realized someone who could lie that way is not someone who would be honorable to me.”

However, unlike many of his colleagues, Horsford’s extramarital relationship doesn’t seem to have broken any laws or code of ethics, at least according to what we know at this time.

Unlike Katie Hill and the alleged Ilhan Omar, Horsford wasn’t paying Linder for her silence, nor did his office receive any benefits of their relationship. She didn’t work for him at any point in her career.

As one of his aides says, “This was a private relationship of the congressman’s, and this was in no way related to his public office.” The aid continued saying that Linder “never received compensation from the congressman or from the campaign over the course of their private relationship.”

However, that may not be entirely true.

Linder says that while Horsford never paid her for anything, he “looked out for me for years, from anything from a job recommendation to financial support.” On occasion, Linder says that he introduced her to a few other politicians and those in positions of influence in the hopes of helping her out. However, whether she took that help, financial support, or otherwise, is unclear.

What is clear is that a man trusted to lead his constituents, to represent them, and do what is best for them on a national level was just found in a ten-year-long lie.

Not exactly a good look, huh?

He may not be forced to resign as Hill was last year, but his career may still suffer. After all, the man who had Horsford’s seat before him decided to retire early and after only one term because of a similar sex scandal of his own. So that doesn’t bode well for the Nevada lawmaker.

However, the seat is prone to flipping anyway.

In fact, this isn’t the first time Horsford has held this seat. He first won it in 2012. But he lost it after only one term to a Republican challenger. The next term ousted that Republican, again after only one term, and put in a Democrat, Ruben Kihuen. It was Kihuen, who vacated his seat, allowing Horsford to retake it in 2018.

According to Linder, Horsford shouldn’t seek re-election. She said, “If this was a story in 2018, he wouldn’t have run.” And she adds, “He obtained this position under false pretenses that he was a family man and man of God. He should take a step back, atone, and if people are satisfied, then he can come back into politics.”

While Linder may have made an extremely “poor decision” some ten or so years ago, she sure seems to have a good point on Horsford’s political career.

  1. I couldn’t care WHO they sleep with EXCEPT if they’re still in the closet homosexual or pedophiles. Those who are can be successfully blackmailed. I think there are MANY in our congress and in the federal courts who ARE closet homosexuals or pedophiles who ARE being blackmailed. If they’re “out” fine but if they’re still keeping their predilections secret then they’re prime candidates for being blackmailed. Come OUT of the damned closets, people.

    1. That is exactly the way Nancy Pelosi uses her fellow politicians – she knows all the dirty skinny on them and she uses that dirt against them for her to get their support of all her idiotic, stupid bills, etc!!! Pelosi is crooked as Hell just like her Daddy was!

      1. And her nephew don’t let us forget Dear Lol Devin Newsome he plays the family card but a reckoning is coming . As a Republican I really don’t care what you do (between you and God) but using falsehoods to secure a political position is our money . That’s crooked it’s lying and deceiving. Shame on you. Regrets to your family. But this family doesn’t fall far from the tree. They do not give a Damn about lying for decades

        1. LIES…yeah…but they’re Catholics…so in Pelosi and Biden’s mind…they reason that they can just go to confession on Mondays and ask for forgiveness and all will be well…so they can start lying all over again…just like the Mafia Don’s of old …!!!

      2. Her daddy was a mafia lawyer and mayor of Baltimore. J. Edgar Hoover tried him 3 different times and he walked because the judge was paid off and at least 3 or jurors on each time he was tried they were paid for by the mad and the democratic party..
        So it’s time to get rid of phyco Nancy Pelosi and put her were she belongs. Prison

  2. I feel,today’s political news is nothing important to us voters. So what,you lied to your wife and kids,we ain’t gotta judge ya,God does-and trust ,he will.Once you get in office,do the work for the people,that’s why we send you there.Were not gonna vote for you because ou like to cheat,we want somebody who looks like me to have the balls to stand up to Guys like “Trump”and say,”That is wrong” and you need to tell the American people the Dam truth!! Now did you take the Chloroquine?

  3. Is Omar getting the same pushback as Horsford and being investigated? She cheated on her husband, paid her lover hundreds of thousands in consulting fees to travel with her breaking campaign law, committed tax fraud, student loan fraud, married her brother – immigration fraud, and she is still in Congress. I am not defending Horsford, but why is he being driven out of Congress and Omar sits on her little throne bashing the U.S.?

    1. Horsford, Omar, Hill –to name a few –only added credit to my conclusion–that the Democrats
      are mostly — a bunch of F##k##g Bastards!!

  4. I’m a long time Republican. From my point of view, it’s none of my business concerning this guy. I feel for his family and hope and pray that it will all work out to the good for them all. “Judge not, lest ye be judged accordingly,” is what comes to me along with “Let the first one among you without sin cast the first stone.” I accept and believe in that, but I’m no saint. My father was a minister. I never heard him say anything negative about anyone. When I did say something negative or derogatory about anyone he would look at me and tell me to walk in their shoes for a while and get back to him on that. I’m no Saint by any level of imagination but he’s still a there with me…


    1. All of these scumbags should have thought of their families before playing around. they deserve no no privacy from the public view. I still want to see a document published detailing who used taxpayer’s money to pay off participants in their little sexual escapades using that little “get out of jail free” slush fund they have in Washington. And I don’t care which party they are affiliated with.

  6. Doesn’t matter does it. You’re a Democrat , you can flail your pee pee about aimlessly and it’s….. “ OK”. When are ANY of these fuc…n reprobates going to do some time. Talking to you Obama and friends… all of you America haters!!

  7. The moral to the story is that if you are a woman DON’T MARRY A DEMOCRATIC POLITICIAN! He’ll just be true to you at the beginning of your marriage &when he is at home, but when he is away from home, such as living in DC or the State capital, if that is away from you, he’ll get ancy & have an affair. You can be SURE of it! So unless you expect & can put up with it, just marry a common man who will live with you all the days of his life except maybe a work overnight trip here & there, now & then. Then you won’t be made out a fool as he enjoys himself with an affair as you live alone, or with kids, at home. Actually you are not being made a fool, he is & you are being the morale one. He is taking advantage of you. DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN! IMMEADIATELY DIVORICE HIM. DO NOT EXCUSE HIM. HE IS WORTHLESS. HE BROKE HIS VOWED PROMISE TO YOU THIS ONE TIME, SO WHAT IS GOING TO KEEP HIM FROM BREAKING IT AGAIN, NO MATTER WHAT HE SAYS. YOU KNOW HOW GOOD AT LYING HE IS, SO DON’T BELIEVE HIM SAYING “I won’t do it again”. Those are only a cliche for the situation, not a believeable one. If he did it once, he will do it again!

  8. You actually make it seem so easy along with your presentation but I find this matter to be really one thing that I think I might by no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely huge for me. I’m looking ahead for your subsequent publish, I will attempt to get the cling of it!|

  9. while on the job and getting paid by the what Fed/state for income . i m sure they went out for dinner/maybe met him at a convention and stayed in his room…given a business account for expenses…is payment for her companion/i call that screwing the government and her at the same time. Oh for got his family…he should step down…any Las Vegas people reading this make sure you do not vote him in again….

  10. Whoa, be fearful of the woman scorned (used and dumped) as she will strike you down especially if you are a politician. I’m sure she didn’t mind the benefits she enjoyed over those 10 long years and went around with a smile on her face. Whoa a woman scorned!!!!!!
