Democrat’s Wife Gets Revenge, Goes Public with ‘Sordid’ Affair and Sinks Re-Election Bid

A House Democrat has just been left with his chances of re-election in tatters after his wife got revenge by very publically exposing his “sordid” extramarital affair.

Dr. Sonya Douglass broke her silence about her husband Rep. Steven Horsford’s (D-NV) affair because she is not happy he is running for re-election.

Douglass accused her congressman husband of forcing his family to “endure yet another season of living through the sordid details.”

The Nevada Democrat was 36 at the time he started an affair with 21-year-old Senate intern Gabriela Linder.

Horsford admitted the relationship to his wife after Linder spilled the beans on her podcast “Mistress for Congress.”

Dr. Sonya Douglass wrote: “If you’re silent about your pain, they’ll kill you and say you enjoyed it.” -Zora Neale Hurston #WHM.

“Until now, I thought being silent was a source of strength.

“I have remained silent for nearly two years and want it to be clear that I am not enjoying the pain that my children and I continue to suffer since @StevenHorsford told me the day after Mother’s Day about his 10-year affair AFTER already speaking to his staff and attorneys.

“And that he would choose to file for re-election and force us to endure yet another season of living through the sordid details of the #horsfordaffair with #mistressforcongress rather than granting us the time and space to heal as a family.

“This election cycle, I will not be silent.

“And since @StevenHorsford refused to do it, I am putting all reporters, journalists, bloggers, and others who choose to include my name and/or images of me and my children in any future stories about the #horsfordaffair on notice.

“We did not ask to be put in public life and were simply supporting @StevenHorsford because that’s what we understood family to be and do.

“We just want to heal and live the amazing lives we’ve been destined to live, free of lies, manipulation, and unbridled ambition.”
