Michael Duvall, California Assemblyman from Orange County
Duvall was caught on tape bragging about sexual affairs with two women, one of whom was a lobbyist for an energy company. At the time, Duvall was vice chair of the Assembly Utilities and Commerce Committee, where he authored 20 bills, one on electricity rates. The 54-year-old married father of two, said his only offense "was engaging in inappropriate storytelling." He said resigned so he would not distract the Legislature.
