Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel (D), a candidate in the state's 2014 gubernatorial race, admitted that he has been involved in an "inappropriate" relationship with his attorney, the Associated Press reports.
Allegations of McDaniel's extramarital affair with Andrea L. Davis first surfaced in a custody dispute earlier this year between Davis and her ex-husband, who asked her in a court filing to admit that she's had sexual relations with the attorney general.
While McDaniel accepted culpability on Tuesday, he did not elaborate on the exact nature of his relationship with Davis.
"With respect to Ms. Davis, I met her during the 2010 campaign. I had limited interaction with her in 2011, some of which I regret to say was inappropriate," he said in a statement.
