Democrats never saw this setback coming.
They can’t afford any missteps ahead of the 2020 election.
And Nancy Pelosi got the shock of her life when this major ally got caught in a scandal.
As American Patriot Daily reports:
The number of sex scandals that the Democrats are facing is truly remarkable.
Joe Biden is being accused of sexual assault by former aide Tara Reade.
Ilhan Omar just married her consultant who she paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to and who she denied she was having an affair with.
Katie Hill had to step down after allegations surfaced that she violated House rules by carrying on an affair with a staffer.
Republican Mike Garcia won Hill’s seat last weekin a special election which marked the first time in decades that Republicans have managed to flip a seat in California.
“It really hurt to have my old seat flip back to Republican –for a ton of people & also for me,” Hill said on Twitter. “In fact, it was pretty f—ing devastating. I went offline & cried for a few days but, as always, getting ready to stand back up & keep fighting.”
However, Nancy Pelosi may by losing another Democratic seat to scandal as Rep. Steven Horsford faces calls for him to resign.
The Democratic Congressman from Nevada confessed to having an affair with former Senator Harry Reid’s intern.
Gabriela Linder said the affair began in 2009 and continued until 2019.
Linder also accused Horsford of offering her financial support and using taxpayer-funded congressional resources to film a video for her son’s YouTube channel.
“If this was a story in 2018, he wouldn’t have run,” Linder said. “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.”
Horsford confessed his affair in 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.”
This is a damaging confession for Horsford to make in an election year in a congressional district Pelosi needs to win.
Nevada’s 4thDistrict is moderately Democrat but has flipped back and forth between Republican and Democrat candidates in the last decade.
Many congressional Democrats are facing reelection in districts that voted for Trump, and they’re going to be facing tough questions about their impeachment vote.
Nancy Pelosi doesn’t want another tough election battle on her hands.
She’s been pushing hard for mail-in ballots because she knows that Democrats could easily use unverified votes to help their candidates.
However, if the Democrats weren’t involved in so many scandals and led by Pelosi’s awful leadership, they wouldn’t have to rely on underhanded methods.
