"Hot" Mike

Have you seen the video of California Assemblyman Mike Duvall, a 54 year-old married father of two, bragging in graphic detail to a colleague before the start of a meeting of the State Assembly Appropriations Committee in July about having sex with two other younger women, both believed to be lobbyists (one for Sempra Energy)?

He apparently didn't realize that his microphone was already "hot" despite the fact thet the committee meeting had not yet started. His boasts include references to the "little eye-patch underwear" worn by one of the women, who he went on to say was 18 years younger than he, as well as to the fact that he apparently has a spanking fetish. ("So I am getting into spanking her. I like it. Yeah..")

The cringe-inducing sexual references would be merely embarassing and humbling for the otherwise inconsequential two-term assemblyman, but for the fact that at least one of these two female lobbyists had business before the Utilities Committee of which Duvall is the Vice Chairman. And this type of behavior is apparently so commonplace among the state's elected representatives in Sacramento that Duvall felt comfortable casually discussing all of this openly during a committee meeting in the capitol.

Amazing. Our government at work. At least he resigned yesterday. Here's the video of a local TV news broadcast. Unfortunately, it's a little blurry:
