Alabama Republican confesses to ‘inappropriate relationship’ in explanation why he won’t run for Senate – By Matthew Chapman (Raw Story) / April 7 2021

On Wednesday, AL.com reported that Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill, long thought to be a key candidate for Senate in 2022, confessed to having an “inappropriate relationship” with a 44-year-old woman named Cesaire McPherson — and said he would be withdrawing his name from consideration.

“I will obviously not be a candidate for the United States Senate nor will I be seeking any other elected position in 2022, because I think it’s important to me to make sure that I become the man that I have been before and that I am working to put myself in the position to be the leader that I have been before, as a husband, as a father, as a friend and as an elected official,” said Merrill.

The confession — just hours after he denied the affair and accused McPherson of “stalking” him — came after McPherson “provided Al.com with a recording of an October 2020 conversation between her and Merrill” in which they “discuss various sexual acts they performed during dozens of romantic encounters that McPherson says took place between November 2017 and November 2020,” reported Connor Sheets and Kyle Whitmore.
