State Senator Jeff Clemens is resigning

State Senator Jeff Clemens from Lake Worth says he is resigning.

It comes less than 24 hours after he admitted he had an affair with a lobbyist.

Clemens was going to be the leader of the Democrats in the Senate.

In a written statement Clemens said he's made mistakes that he's ashamed of and now he's focusing on becoming a better person. He said that's impossible to do while in elected office.

Before becoming a senator Clemens was the mayor of Lake Worth and was a state representative.

He's been a senator since 2012
