Nevada Rep. Horsford Acknowledges He Had Extramarital Affair

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Democratic Congressman Steven Horsford of Nevada has acknowledged he had an extramarital affair with a woman who said the on-and-off relationship began in 2009 before ending last September.

Horsford said in a statement released to The Associated Press that he had a consensual relationship with another adult outside of his marriage, over the course of several years.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the affair was with Gabriela Linder, who was interviewed Friday by the newspaper.
