Scandal Imperils Young Political Career : Politics: After months of denial, a Riverside congressman admits sexual relations with a known prostitute. 'I was feeling intensely lonely,' he says.

RIVERSIDE It would not have been an easy reelection bid in any case for freshman Rep. Ken Calvert (R-Riverside), who barely made it to Congress two years ago. But now Calvert's biggest reelection hurdle may be his own indiscretions, which also could pose a problem in surviving even his own party's June primary.

The reason: After months of denying it, Calvert, 40, has admitted having sex in his car one night last November with a woman who police say is a known prostitute.

Initially, Calvert--a member of a prominent Riverside County family--said he was doing nothing wrong with the woman when police saw them together on a Corona street. Corona police said simply that the congressman was spotted sitting in his car with a female, that there was no criminal activity and that after a few words the congressman drove off. But the Riverside Press-Enterprise newspaper went to court to press Corona for release of confidential police reports that had been prepared by officers who were sensitive to the fact that they had a street-level encounter with their local congressman.

"My conduct that evening was inappropriate," he said--not because it was illegal, but because "it violated the values of the person I strive to be." He admitted that he was caught in "an extremely embarrassing situation." He said he did not pay for the sex. He said he "panicked and tried to drive away" when the officers confronted him, but "came to my senses" and cooperated with them. Corona Police Capt. John Dalzell said Calvert was not detained or arrested (or strangled, shot, pistolwhipped"

Dalzell said Calvert did not try to exert influence to avoid arrest. He said the officer's decision not to pursue the matter "wasn't a close call. He didn't even call for a supervisor." In his explanation for his conduct that night, Calvert said he had come back from a rough week in Washington and was reeling from his father's suicide a YEAR earlier, as well as his wife's request for a divorce, which had been granted just a few weeks before.

"I was feeling intensely lonely," he said.
