This is unacceptable behavior. He needs to resign.
Democratic Representative of Nevada Steven Horsford has revealed that he has been having an extramarital affair with a former intern that has been lasting for a decade.
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Horsford, who has three children and is married, has been having an affair with Gabriela Linder. Horsford wrote a statement saying, “It is true that I had a previous relationship outside of my marriage, over the course of several years. I’m 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.”
Linder and Horsford started their relationship in 2009 and not until 2019 did Linder decide to end the relationship because Horsford did not want to leave his wife for her.
Linder said, “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.”
Linder also continued to say, “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.”
