It's not an investigation, but the FBI has questioned at least two employees of the former Assemblyman Mike Duvall to see if there is any evidence of criminal wrongdoing, the LA Times reported today.

Back in September, KCAL9 obtained a video of the Corona-based politician bragging about sexual trysts with, nonetheless, lobbyists. One of them allegedly worked for a utility firm. And what do you know, Duvall was the vice chairman of the Assembly's Utilities and Commerce committee.

The same day the video was released, Duvall resigned, not admitting to any affairs. "My offense was engaging in inappropriate story-telling and I regret my language and choice of words," he said in a statement.

Despite his salaciousness, he was previously considered a "family values" politician who voted against gay issues.
