A Republican state lawmaker from Southern California has resigned after he was caught on tape bragging about having sex with a female lobbyist and another woman. Assemblyman Mike Duvall of Yorba Linda said Wednesday in a statement that his comments were inappropriate and have become "a major distraction" from the work lawmakers are trying to finish during the final week of their session.

Duvall says it would not be fair to his family, constituents or friends to remain in office.

The 54-year-old lawmaker, whose is married with two adult children, made the comments to another lawmaker during a break in a committee hearing at the Capitol over the summer.
