SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Republican Assembly member Mike Duvall resigned from office Wednesday after revelations that he described lewd details of two sexual affairs at a televised committee hearing.
The resignation came after Assembly Speaker Karen Bass stripped Duvall, R-Yorba Linda, of his spots on an ethics committee and another regulating utilities after reports of a long-term affair he has carried on with a female utility company lobbyist.
Duvall, who is married, was caught on tape at a committee meeting relating lurid details about the affair.
Duvall, 54, describes his mistress' "eye-patch underwear," boasts about the 18-year age difference between the two and shares dicey details about their sex life.
"So, I am getting into spanking her. Yeah, I like it. I like spanking her. She goes, 'I know you like spanking me.' I said, 'Yeah! Because you're such a bad girl!'" he says in the recording.
He also refers to an affair with a second woman.
