A “family values” California legislator has been caught on tape bragging about having sex in his office with two different women, both married and both lobbyists. Michael Duvall, who sits on the “Rules Committee that oversees member ethics,” was recorded at a public hearing by a committee room microphone he evidently did not realize was turned on. KCAL-9 reporter Dave Lopez revealed yesterday that Republican Michael Duvall, a two-time assemblyman representing Yorba Linda who is married with two grown children, was recorded “ talking about a very sensitive subject into a hot microphone without realizing it”:
She wears little eye-patch underwear. So the other day she came here with her underwear, Thursday. And we made love Wednesday a lot. … I like spanking her. She goes, “I know you like spanking me.” I said, “Yeah, that’s ’cause you’re such a bad girl.”
K-CAL’s Lopez relates that sources told him Duvall “loves to talk about his quote sexual conquests,” and “it’s very difficult to get him to change the subject.” According to the OC Weekly, one of the lobbyists Duvall is having sex with is Heidi De Jong Barsuglia, who became a lobbyist for a major California utility after Duvall became vice chairman of the utilities committee:
In April — two months after Duvall became vice chairman of the Utilities & Commerce committee — privately owned California utility giant Sempra Energy hired Barsuglia as one of its top lobbyists, according to Secretary of State records.
