Democrat North Carolina U.S. Senate candidate Cal Cunningham has been in a race with Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC). But this week, Cunningham’s campaign has completely melted down with the news of a sexting scandal and alleged multiple affairs with women not his wife.
My colleague, Sister Toldjah, broke down a lot of the scandal here.
But Cunningham’s campaign was further torched today with the latest messages released by the National File. In those messages, one of his alleged mistresses, Arlene Guzman Todd, said Cunningham mocked the potential suicidal situation of her military veteran husband.
In text messages, Arlene Guzman Todd tells her friend that her husband Jeremy Todd “was all suicidal and shit a couple of nights ago” and “Had a gun out.” Guzman Todd added, “I could not be bothered.”
Guzman Todd then said that Cunningham mocked the potential suicide situation by telling her, “You’re going to be the best therapist ever at this rate. Sorry you’re having to deal with it.”
The Army Reserve is now investigating Cunningham because of the relationship with Guzman Todd, according to WRAL.
The Army Reserve said Wednesday that it has opened an investigation into Cunningham, who is a lieutenant colonel in the Reserve.
“The Army Reserve is investigating the matters involving Lt. Col. James Cunningham. As such, we are unable to provide further details at this time,” said Simon Flake, chief of media relations and public information for the Army Reserve Strategic Communications.
Adultery is considered “unacceptable conduct” by the military and might be “service discrediting.”
What a horrible look, allegedly mocking a man who served in the Army in Iraq and Afghanistan over five combat deployments, let alone having an affair with his wife. Especially when you’ve sold yourself as the “family man” candidate like Cunningham has.

Repeatedly refers questions to his communications team and refuses to answer specifics on his affair with the wife of a combat veteran or the ongoing US Army Reserve investigation announced this morning. #NCsen pic.twitter.com/ks18hTWA9D

He also is really bad with masks.
This can’t play well in North Carolina and Cunningham keeps trying to say it isn’t about his “personal life.” But it surely is about his honesty, his judgment, and his deceit.
