Latest in lawmaker caught on tape talking about lobbyist

The Post provides this update on the California lawmaker who was caught on tape discussing a private relationship matter and a state lobbyist.

In a statement released Monday, Sempra Energy lobbyist Heidi Barsuglia called the scandal surrounding former Assemblyman Mike Duvall’s comments “a professional and personal nightmare.” She denied engaging in any kind of illegal or unethical behavior.

Her attorney, Malcolm Segal, added: “Just so there is no doubt left in anyone’s mind, what Mr. Duvall later called ‘inappropriate storytelling’ was just a plain old-fashioned lie. Mrs. Barsuglia is considering all of her legal remedies.”
