Some lobbyists will apparently do anything for work. A California assemblyman and family-values crusader has quit after boasting about spanking sex with a utility company lobbyist and "hot" sex with another. He went into graphic detail over a broadcast mike he didn't realize was live, reports the Los Angeles Times. "We made love—a lot!" gushed Yorba Linda Assemblyman Mike Duvall, 54. "She goes, 'I know you like spanking me.' I said, 'Yeah! Because you're such a bad girl!'"

The married dad of two, 19 years older than the spanked lobbyist, said he was "deeply saddened" by his "inappropriate comments," which were videotaped and aired on Sacramento KCAL9 TV. A spokeswoman for a consumer watchdog group complained about "the use of sexual favors" as "one more example of the tactics that energy companies and lobbyists have used to win favorable laws from lawmakers."
