Former Assemblyman Mike Duvall will not be investigated by the FBI after he was caught on tape telling stories--fairytales, allegedly--about have sex with a lobbyist. "No prosecutive action by the United States Attorney’s Office is warranted," an FBI statement read. The day the video aired on TV, Duvall resigned, calling his words "inappropriate storytelling.'' Meanwhile, Sempra lobbyist Heidi Dejong Barsuglia "is exploring legal remedies for the personal and professional damages caused by allegations that she had an affair with former lawmaker," reports the Sacramento Bee.
