Politician Resigns After Alt-Weekly & TV Station Reveal Alleged Affair
september 10, 2009 11:21 am
Republican Michael D. Duvall has resigned from the California state Assembly amid the scandal uncovered on Tuesday
by OC Weekly
and KCBS/KCAL. The staunch conservative was caught on video
talking graphically about two affairs, one of which was with a lobbyist whose clients had business before a committee on which Duvall sat. Weekly
reporter R. Scott Moxley and TV reporter Dave Lopez were both chasing the story at the same time on Tuesday -- literally -- as they followed Duvall around the capitol, trying to get him to respond. In a statement
, Duvall says his resignation "is in no way an admission that I had an affair or affairs," adding that his only "offense was engaging in inappropriate story-telling."
