Cal Cunningham, the Democrat U.S. Senate candidate in North Carolina, is in trouble. After confessing to extramarital sexts with Arlene Guzman Todd, a U.S. Army veteran’s wife, Cunningham is facing another allegation.
H/T: National File
Erin Brinkman, a lawyer and adviser on Cunningham’s failed 2010 U.S. Senate campaign, claims that her friend has also been having an affair with Cunningham, the married father of two, since the year 2012. Brinkman’s friend was reportedly “devastated” upon finding out that Cunningham is involved in a romantic relationship with another woman, Guzman Todd, in addition to Cunningham’s relationship with his wife.
“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!,” Brinkman writes on Facebook.
