Corona Assemblyman Who Listened to Duvall's Sexual Stories Removed from Ethics Committee
Assembly Speaker Karen Bass today removed Assemblyman Jeff Miller (R-Corona) from his Ethics Committee post after he listened to Mike Duvall discuss two sexual trysts, one allegedly with an energy lobbyist. Miller, who was blurred out in the video first shown by KCAL9 on Tuesday night, said he does not recall the conversation. However, the LA Times finds that his office requested a copy of the tape shortly after the hearing.
Bass' office said it was inappropriate for Miller to sit on the committee investigating Duvall. Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher (R-San Diego) has replaced him.
