“Let’s begin with that Cunningham scandal…”

If Cal Cunningham was hoping his confession to “extramarital sexting” with a veteran’s wife would get lost in a Friday night news dump, he was grossly mistaken.

Not only was Cunningham’s confession widely covered from the front pages of the state’s two largest papers, to cable news, to local news in every North Carolina market, but outlets like The News & Observer have reported they are still waiting for answers to more questions.

“There has been an earth-shattering revelation about Cunningham. He’s involved in a sexting scandal, and it could, frankly, go to court martial.”

“Let’s begin with that Cunningham scandal…”

“Cunningham is the clear loser.”
