His past is coming back to bite him…
Democratic Representative Steven Horsford recently came out saying that he was having an affair with an intern, and now an ethics complaint has been filed against him.
The complaint letter states, “Representative Steven Horsford’s concealment of an ongoing affair implicates an abuse of his official position and potentially federal law. His use of financial payments, staff time, and repeated run-ins with legal obligations betray the public trust. Ultimately, his conduct for the past ten years destroys the credibility of his office and fails to maintain the integrity of the House. Therefore, we respectfully urge OCE to investigate this matter and any potential violations of federal law and standards of House ethics.”
The letter continues, “Representative Horsford’s past behavior of unpaid debts, contractual violations, and traffic citations demonstrates a perpetual history of failing to abide by the law. His lack of transparency in his own life fails to reflect positively upon the House, warranting investigation.”
Horsford probably should have thought about how the future would look if he were to have an affair. Unfortunately he didn’t and now he’s in trouble.
