(Tea Party PAC) – Democrats and sex scandals go hand-in-hand.
So do complete and total media cover-ups and double-standards.
You wouldn’t know it from flipping on network or cable news, but there is a massive sex scandal unfolding with Democrat Cal Cunningham, who is running for Senate in the crucial electoral state of North Carolina.
On Tuesday, BizPac Review notes, his campaign virtually confirmed that he had an extramarital affair with one Arlene Guzman Todd, a public relations strategist from California, who is also married.
On Monday, Fox News reported he had pulled out of a town hall event just hours after Guzman Todd told the Associated Press that she’d had an “intimate encounter” with Cunningham in July.
(That doesn’t sound very COVID-compliant, Mr. Cunningham!)

AP obtained text messages Guzman Todd had sent to a friend where she had said she’d been intimate with Cunningham in his home, an encounter she later described as “weird.”
Nonetheless, she later complained of a lack of attention from Cunningham.
“I’m just going to send to his opponent his naked photos,” Guzman Todd wrote. “That will teach him.”
Clearly, she knew what was at stake, writing in another text that “He knows (that I) can tank his campaign.”
The Cunningham campaign confirmed the veracity of the texts, which is huge.
So, where are the networks?
BPR has the answer:
Yet, ABC, CBS, and NBC skipped the Democrat’s controversy in both their morning and evening news programs, according to Fox News.
It comes as no surprise that CNN and MSNBC also ignored the story — after all, the networks are all but an extension of the Democratic Party campaign apparatus.
However, when Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., who is Cunningham’s opponent, disclosed on Friday that he tested positive for COVID-19, CNN and MSNBC were all over that story.
Tillis, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will take up Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination, has been in a tight race for reelection and recent polls showed Cunningham with a narrow lead.
In a statement, Guzman Todd apologized for the “pain and embarrassment, and disrespect I’ve caused to my immediate family, loved ones, and everyone affected by this situation.”
After all, she’s not exactly an innocent party, here.
“A few months back, I displayed a lapse in judgment by engaging in a relationship with Cal Cunningham during a period of marital separation,” she added. “The relationship spanned several months and consisted primarily of a series of text exchanges and an in-person encounter.”
WTVD reported that Cunningham, a veteran and lieutenant colonel in the Army Reserve, was seen as a star recruit for the Democrat’s Senate contingent.
The ABC affiliated noted that his “aw-shucks style” “matched effectively against Tillis.”
“He had this clean-cut image with a great story, a great background, an impeccable record of service,” Democratic consultant Brad Crone told WTVD. “He was straight out of central casting.”
The trouble is, Hollywood is infamous for its scandalous moral standards.
As for the media, while the liberal elitists who make up much of the industry swear they are even handed, their bias is sometimes more apparent in what they decide not to cover than it is when they favor one side over the other.
