In November of last year, I blogged about my Assemblyman Michael Duvall and and an email message I received from him about the “undemocratic” protests of the those of us who were against the passage of proposition 8. Mr. Duvall has been an avid supporter of denying the GLBT community marriage equality, to the point that he put the existing same sex marriages in quotes.
Apparently same sex marriage has not been the downfall of Mr. Duvall’s political career, or put him in bed with other women outside his marriage. Or as he is now known in the blogosphere “Spanky Duvall” (watch the video). He was able to get into bed with these women, presumably without any gay people pushing him there. Caught in a sex scandal where he admits on an open mike to sleeping with a lobbyist, he resigns in less than 24 hours. Besides the obvious hypocritical nature of this family values champion, I am amazed that he doesn’t see the obvious conflict of interest in sleeping with a lobbyist who has interest in front of a committee on which he serves!
This is what it is like to live behind the Orange Curtain. Me and my wife are living quietly, paying our taxes, keeping up our property, and being good neighbors. And this guy is sleeping around and being unethical, while trying to deny rights to my GLBT community. My daddy told me life ain’t fair, but really. This is just ridiculous.
