Go figure: "Family values" Michael Duvall brags about having affairs with lobbyists

Now, I can't say I'm surprised, since many douchebags preaching "family values" get caught cheating on their spouses, but this is pretty fucking low.  The women he had affairs with were lobbyists (uh, conflict of interest anyone?).  And, as this commenter pointed out, he was bragging about his sexual conquests at work, and despite efforts by his listeners to change the subject, Duvall would keep talking.  So not only did this asshole cheat on his wife with lobbyists (uh, yeah, that's bad), but he was talking about it at work, thus creating a hostile environment by making those around him uncomfortable.  Workplace sexual harassment, okay?

He has since resigned:

I am deeply saddened that my inappropriate comments have become a major distraction for my colleagues in the Assembly, who are working hard on the very serious problems facing our state. I have come to the conclusion that it would not be fair to my family, my constituents or to my friends on both sides of the aisle to remain in office. Therefore, I have decided to resign my office, effective immediately, so that the Assembly can get back to work.
Good.  You're a douchebag.  I hope your wife divorces your dumb ass.

I agree with your comment on Melissa's letter at Shakesville, I really enjoy her blog, everybody agrees with each other, it's refreshing.

Yes, it is awesome, I love how she bans people for opposing comments or dissents in any way. It reminds me of when I was living east Germany under communism, I really enjoyed how they handled people who opposed the government.

just so you know, there's a difference b/w dissenting, and hate speech, which liss doesn't allow, and neither do i. i welcome you to stay and read more, but just know i have a strict comments policy which is enforced (see above link). i suggest you think carefully before continuing in this vein.

Yeah, can't say I was the least damn bit surprised. Yet another Family Values politician turns out not to have any! Gee.

(Hi, Anon. Your passive-aggressive sarcasm is adorable.)
