Gabriela Linder Affair With Rep. Steven Horsford
Steven Horsford admitted to having a longstanding affair with Gabriela Linder, whom he met while she was an intern for Senator Harry Reid. Linder told The Las Vegas Review-Journal that she’s “Love Jones,” which is a pseudonym she picked as the name of her podcast, “Mistress for Congress,” in which she started detailing the affair publicly in April.
Linder told Review-Journal that her affair with the democratic congressman started in 2009 when he was the majority leader of the Nevada state Senate, and she was interning for United States Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid at his Nevada office. After meeting at an event, they shared an intimate relationship between 2009 to 2010, and then again from 2017 until September 2019.
Horsford confirmed the news of the affair. He told the outlet on Friday night, “It is true that I had a previous relationship outside of my marriage, over several years. I’m deeply sorry to all of those who have been impacted by this very poor decision, most importantly, my wife and family. Out of concern for my family during this challenging time, I ask that our privacy is respected.”

She says that he was born from a relationship she had while a law student at the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis, Minnesota. During this time, she and Horsford were not hooking up.
Linder never worked for Horsford, but on episode 3 of “Mistress of Congress,” she said that he “looked out for over the years, from anything from a job recommendation to financial support.”

“This was a private relationship of the congressman’s and this was in no way related to his public office,” the aide said. Linder “never received any compensation from the congressman or the campaign for their private relationship.”
