Video Shows Family Values Republican Rep. Kissing Staffer

Louisiana Congressman Vance McAllister who ran for office touting his conservative Christian bona fides, has some ‘splainin’ to do.

The Ouachita Citizen, a newspaper based in West Monroe, La., posted a Dec. 23 surveillance video purportedly from inside McAllister’s district office in Monroe.

The video shows McAllister kissing a woman identified by the newspaper as a congressional staffer for the first-term lawmaker. Federal payroll records show she is a part-time aide who began working for McAllister the day after he won his seat last year.

McAllister won the special election on Nov. 16 to replace Rep. Rodney Alexander (R-La.). McAllister won in the heavily Republican district by playing up his conservative credentials, including his Christian faith and his 16-year marriage.

McAllister’s office did not return phone calls and e-mails seeking comment.
