Dem Senate candidate drops out of virtual town hall after second affair allegation surfaces

Democrat North Carolina Senate candidate Cal Cunningham has dropped out of a virtual town hall amid an extramarital sexual texting scandal and a second affair allegation emerged.


Per Townhall “following Cunningham’s weekend scandal, that has gained national attention, the National File reports that the Senate hopeful allegedly has a second mistress. The report shows a Facebook comment from a woman named Erin Brinkman, who claims that a close friend also engaged in a multi-year affair with Cunningham, and that she was “devastated” after hearing of his adulterous message exchanges with Todd.

“He’s been having an affair with a good friend of mine since 2012. Not the woman mentioned in the story. Needless to say, my friend was devastated. But my feeling is, if they’ll cheat WITH you, they’ll cheat ON you!,” she wrote.”

NationalFile revealed Cunningham’s sext messages with Arlene Guzman Todd, a Veteran’s wife. Cunningham himself is married with 2 children.

Cunningham calls Guzman Todd “historically sexy” and says “I’ve had the most amazing dreams of our time together and am thinking of you too!” suggesting an affair.

In a statement to the News & Observer the North Carolina Democrat said “I have hurt my family, disappointed my friends, and am deeply sorry. The first step in repairing those relationships is taking complete responsibility, which I do. I ask that my family’s privacy be respected in this personal matter. I remain grateful and humbled by the ongoing support that North Carolinians have extended in this campaign, and in the remaining weeks before this election I will continue to work to earn the opportunity to fight for the people of our state.”
