State Senator Jeff Clemens from Lake Worth says he is resigning.
It comes less than twenty-four 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
