The incoming leader of the Senate Democrats resigned Friday after revealing he had an affair with a lobbyist during the 2017 session.
The affair between Sen. Jeff Clemens, a Lake Worth political consultant, and former Martin County lobbyist Devon West, was first reported by Politico Florida.
West was hired by Broward County in July as a lobbyist and legislative coordinator.
"I have made mistakes I ashamed of, and for the past six months I have been focused on becoming a better person, Clemens said in a statement... I apologize again to my wife, my family and anyone and everyone that I have treated poorly in the past for putting you through this in such a public way.
Clemens, 47, acknowledged the affair Thursday...
According to the Politico report, which relied on unnamed sources, West came into possession of Clemens Apple laptop, and gained access to all his contacts and personal information and then informed his wife of the tryst.
Efforts to reach West were unsuccessful.

Unlike screwing their constituents as most of them do...
That is the third one today. Holy cow!
He was cheating on West too ?
Is Devon a man or woman, or doesn’t it matter these days?
According to LinkedIn, Devon did used to be the Legislative Affairs Coordinator for Martin County Board of County Commissioners...so, this makes sense.
It’s a woman.
Laz would hit it (I might be tempted myself)
Many lobbyists are like paid prostitutes, so it shouldn’t be surprising when they simply add SEX to their list of services.
There must be more to this than is being reported.
Rats just don’t leave office over a measly affair.
This is just the story they are running with.
Article actually mentioned his Party affiliation in title! How unusual!
Upon closer inspection....no... In fact she’s downright GUILTY.
Donna Rice, that girl who set sail with Gary Hartpence aboard the S.S. Monkey Business, is one of the most successful lobbyists in Washington.
Proof of theorem.
now she can claim #metoo...
She can always claim harassment.
So she can come up with more money for even more ghoulish face lifts!
Woa! a Democrat resigning due to an affair?
He has a lot more moral fiber than any other regular Democrat, sorry to see him go, he should stay just because of that..
She can lobby me any time!
