Yesterday, KCAL-9 and the OC Weekly reported that California assemblyman Michael Duvall, a “family values” Republican, was caught admitting to having affairs with married lobbyists. Now, the Orange County Register is reporting that Duvall has decided to resign:
Orange County Assemblyman Mike Duvall, R-Yorba Linda, just resigned from office after a huge uproar from both sides of the aisle over a tape of him bragging about affairs with two Sacramento lobbyists.
“I am deeply saddened that my inappropriate comments have become a major distraction for my colleagues in the Assembly, who are working hard on the very serious problems facing our state. I have come to the conclusion that it would not be fair to my family, my constituents or to my friends on both sides of the aisle to remain in office. Therefore, I have decided to resign my office, effective immediately, so that the Assembly can get back to work.”
