North Carolina Democratic Senate candidate Cal Cunningham admitted he exchanged sexual texts with a married woman who is not his wife, but new reports suggest their relationship went beyond these explicit digital messages.
New texts obtained by WRAL and later verified by the Associated Press now suggest that Cunningham had a sexual relationship with Arlene Guzman Todd. According to the Associated Press, through several interviews late Monday as well as from texts, Guzman Todd talked about two in-person meetings with Cunningham, one encounter in March that she noted did not include intimate contact and a second meeting back in July in North Carolina where such contact did occur.
It is unknown if Cunningham used any campaign resources or funds to facilitate his encounters with Todd.
Cunningham, a former state senator and Army reservist, is married with two children. He apologized Saturday for sending the sexually charged text messages to Todd, a Los Angeles public relations executive.
