Taking responsibility for one’s action

Congressman Steve Horsford, the Black token for the Democrat party.

The John Ensign scandal related to revelations in 2009 of an extramarital affair between United States Senator John Ensign from Nevada and campaign aide Cynthia Hampton from 2007 to 2008, and actions taken by Ensign to keep the affair secret.
After Ruben Kihuen “made persistent and unwanted advances towards women who were required to interact with him as part of their professional “responsibilities” almost every prominent Democrat turned their back on him and asked him to resign, he left his elected position.
According to Wikipedia, Steven Alexander Horsford (born April 29, 1973) is an American politician and businessman serving as the U.S. Representative for Nevada’s 4th congressional district since 2019, previously holding the position from 2013 to 2015.
A member of the Democratic Party, he served in the Nevada Senate, representing the 4th district, in Clark County, from 2005 to 2013.
Horsford was the first African American to serve as Majority Leader (2009-2013) and the first African American to represent Nevada in Congress. Horsford was defeated in 2014 and lost to a Republican opponent in 2016.
After the election he joined an international Las Vegas-based business and marketing consulting firm, R&R Partners, for which he had worked before beginning his political career. In January 2018, he announced that he would run in the midterm elections, which he won in November 2018, defeating former Republican U.S. Representative Cresent Hardy in a rematch of their 2014 race.
Steven Horsford has been married for twenty years to his wife and together they have three children; he replaced fellow Democrat Ruben Kihuen after charges of sexual harassment force Kihuen to retire or step down.
Most likely with the help of marketing consulting firm, R&R Partners, Horsford turned out to be the Black Golden Boy of Las Vegas and with the help of the same marketing consulting firm he became a Las Vegas success story.
But, as often happens when someone is held in high esteem, as is the case with the Black Golden Boy of Las Vegas and his Las Vegas success story, it must have gone to his head and he has made several mistakes, possibly starting with illegally parking his SUV with his personalized license plate “State Senator 17” in a handicapped parking space at a park for six hours to start an extramarital relationship with an intern working for none other than former Senator and Majority Leader Harry Reid.
No one could believe that Harry Reid was not aware of the Black Golden Boy’s extramarital affair with his intern; in fact some even believe that the former Senator gave the “couple” his blessing.
Steven Alexander Horsford must have been under the impression that he is untouchable and the Nevada Congressional Delegation must have helped him to believe it because even after the cat got out of the bag no one has given the people of Nevada the respect of responding to Horsford’s extramarital affair.
Everyone attacked former US Senator John Ensign after the John Ensign scandal became public and were so quick to ask Ruben Kihuen to step down, but they all have kept their mouths shut, yet inquiring Nevadans want to know.
We can understand their attack on Senator Ensign for being a Republican, but why on Kihuen, who just as Horsford, was a faithful puppet of Harry Reid and was the Hispanic token for the Nevada Democrats as Horsford is the Black token for the Democrat party.
The Democrat Congressional Delegation needs to come forward and give Nevadans the respect they all deserve and let their position on the Horsford extramarital issue be known.
Ruben Kihuen was strongly criticized by this newspaper and by many others in the community, including Congresswomen Dina Titus and Susi Lee and Senators Cathleen Cortes Mastos and Jackie Ross who asked (“suggested”) that he resign, which he did.
Those same people that asked Ruben Kihuen—who followed in the steps of his teacher and mentor to a “T”— to step down are now keeping their mouths shut and we want to know why.
What are the duties of a Mistress? To please her man; to look pretty; to be available when he shows up; to spend his money; and, of course, to learn to keep her mouth shut at all times.
The Democrat Congressional Delegation should look themselves in the mirror and realize that they very possibly could be another Steve Horsford’s wife or another Hillary Clinton.
However, a man should know that a Mistress should not be double crossed and that he shouldn’t promise her something he is not going to fulfil because he does not want to get under her skin.
Is the Democrat Congressional Delegation afraid to speak up against the Horsford error, mistake, or slip because they agree with his  behavior or because they  do not want to upset the Black community, the Black voters?
The Las Vegas Tribune’s inquiring mind wants to know.
