Horsford admits to extramarital affair after podcaster discloses relationship

Nevada Rep. Steven Horsford on Friday acknowledged that he’d carried on a long-standing affair with a former intern for Sen. Harry Reid who has detailed the relationship in a series of podcast episodes and on Twitter.

The woman, Gabriela Linder, told the Review-Journal that she is “Love Jones,” the pseudonym of a person who first began sharing her story through a public podcast, “Mistress for Congress,” in April. The podcast and a related Twitter account have relayed what she claims are various details of the affair, including a purported screenshot of a message exchanged between Horsford, a Democrat, and Linder in 2018.
