After Orange County Assemblyman Mike Duvall resigned amid controversy over a video where he bragged about sex with a woman, allegedly a lobbyist, the state's Fair Political Practices Commission gave him 30 days to disclose any gifts he had received.

Of the $486 he claimed, none were from Sempra Energy where the woman he allegedly slept with reportedly works, according to the LA Times. Six groups engaged in lobbying paid for meals including Pacific Gas and Electric, the California Tribal Business Alliance and the American Council of Engineering Companies.

Duvall said his resignation was not an "admission" that he had an affair or affairs. The FBI was looking into the case but has not said an official investigation has been launched. Attorney General Jerry Brown said he will not investigate.
