All in the tone

Now this story reads like a Carl Hiaasen plotline – not only because of its subject matter. The report could actually have been written by Hiaasen, as you can see from this extract:

Up until the video emerged, Duvall’s second term as a member of the California Assembly was progressing pretty much like his first — in relative obscurity, with few notable legislative accomplishments.

California’s legislative leaders have been trying to focus on a number high-profile issues — from water policy to prisons to renewable energy — during the waning days of their legislative session. On Wednesday, they instead found themselves answering questions about a lawmaker who bragged about a spanking fetish, the type of underwear worn by a mistress and his apparent ability to carry on two extramarital affairs at once.

Assembly Speaker Karen Bass, D-Los Angeles, called it ‘a very sad day.’

I’d recommend reading Juliet Williams’s hilarious and well written report in its entirety.
