Just when you thought it couldnâ€™t get more bizarreâ€¦
The latest from Duvallâ€™s web site.
“I want to make it clear that my decision to resign is in no way an admission that I had an affair or affairs. My offense was engaging in inappropriate story-telling and I regret my language and choice of words. The resulting media coverage was proving to be an unneeded distraction to my colleagues and I resigned in the hope that my decision would allow them to return to the business of the state.”
It appears heâ€™s still apologizing for getting caught â€“ for being heard on a microphone â€“ not for what he actually boasted of. Iâ€™m sorry. I fail to see the logic. Here he says heâ€™s denying the affair(s) that heâ€™s on record boasting of.Â He says it was â€œinappropriate story-tellingâ€ He did not say â€œfictional story-telling.â€ He regrets his â€œlanguage and choice of words.â€ What? Other words would have been better? Like which other words?
Like maybe he should just man up and apologize for his inappropriate behavior with Heidi and to his family, constituents, staff and colleagues. I donâ€™t go to church much anymore, so I need a reminder. Doesnâ€™t one need to confess oneâ€™s actual sins and repent in order to attain forgiveness?
Update: The lobbyist denies affair too.
Looks like the pattern of denials is starting to make sense, If they both deny the affair then the lobbyist may get to keep her joband Duvall may stay out of legal trouble.
