First, he bungled up the difference between BBQ and grilling, now he’s been busted in a sexting scandal.
Democrat Senate candidate Cal Cunningham has been caught sexting with two women and neither of them are his wife.
The scandal caused Cunningham to pull out of a town hall.
I’m disappointed for the organizers who worked hard to put this together; also that we will not hear from Cunningham about sexually suggestive texts he sent to a woman (not his wife, nor mother of his children). Fascinated to see when he publicly addresses this..#ncpol #29days

“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!” reads a screengrab of a Facebook comment written by Erin Brinkman that was published by NationalFile.com on Monday.
Brinkman served on Cunningham’s state Senate steering committee from 2009 to 2010.
Steamy text messages exchanges between Cunningham and Arlene Guzman Todd were also published. Todd is currently the public relations strategist for his campaign.
A screenshot of the text messages shows the two were having an affair.
Cunningham told Guzman Todd “Would make my day to roll over and kiss you about now,” to which she replies, “You’re so sweet. I would enjoy that.”
Another shows Guzman Todd tell Cunningham, “the only thing I want on my to do list is you,” to which Cunningham replies, “Sounds so hot and so fun!”
Cunningham has issued an apology.
“I have hurt my family, disappointed my friends, and am deeply sorry,” Cunningham, who is married with two teenage children, said in a statement late Friday. “The first step in repairing those relationships is taking complete responsibility, which I do.”
ICYMI: @CalforNC was exchanging sexual text messages with not one, but possibly TWO mistresses during his campaign for Senate. Cal should be held accountable for his actions. #NCSen #ncpol pic.twitter.com/sgGlvPxzbd
