The admission came in the form of a statement issued in response to a Garland County divorce case.
That case involves Andrea L. "Andi" Davis and her estranged husband, Frederick N. "Fred" Day, two Hot Springs residents, according to TalkBusiness.net.
McDaniel's statement released this morning:
"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. I have no knowledge of the other allegations contained in this pleading.my wife Bobbi and I love each other very much. I have been candid with her about this matter, and with much prayer, we have moved on with our life together. I hope the people of Arkansas will also accept my apology and know how honored I am to work for them everyday."
TalkBusiness reports that in an October court filing, Day accuses Davis of having "sexual relations with Attorney General of the State of Arkansas Dustin McDaniel in 2011 or 2012."
Day also accuses Davis of additional sexual relations with other men as well as drug use and money laundering, TalkBusiness reports.
McDaniel, whose term ends in two years, has already declared his candidacy for Governor in 2014.
