Heidi Dejong Baruglia Affair Causes Michael Duvall To Resign

Well that was quick. After the story broke last evening and this morning that Orange County Assemblyman Michael Duvall had blabbed about the graphic details of an extramarital affair with lobbyist Heidi Dejong Bargulia, he has announced he will retire.

Hounded by reporters for most of the day, Duvall released a statement saying that, ""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."

For those just tuning in, Duvall probably made the smart move. Back in July, Duvall was in a public hearing and graphically described the lobbyist, Heidi Dejong Barsuglia, he was having an affair with to a colleague. Midway through his his verbal Penthouse letter, the microphone in front of him went live, and the Orange County Cassanova's tale went live to the entire dias.

Unaware, Duvall continued to tell his colleague, "She wears little eye-patch underwear. So, the other day she came here with her underwear, Thursday. And
 so, we had made love Wednesday--a lot! And so she'll, she's all, 'I am going 
up and down the stairs, and you're dripping out of me!' So messy!"
