Gabriela Linder, a former US Senate intern who had a past love affair with current Nevada US Rep. Steven Horsford (D-Las Vegas), has publicly asked the Congressman to resign his seat. Ms. Linder said that Mr. Horsford, according to the Daily Kos Elections news site, "…obtained his 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."
Rep. Horsford said the affair, which he acknowledged, does not have any bearing on his ability to perform his congressional duties. Eight Republicans are vying for their party nomination to oppose Mr. Horsford in the Fall. Five Democrats are challenging him in the June 9th primary election.
