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
