Vance McAllister (R-LA) is the freshman Rep caught in that grainy surveillance camera video smooching a member of his staff. According to an interview in the local paper, McAllister says he plans to run for reelection this November “unless there is an outcry for me not to serve, and so far there has been an outpouring of support, not for my actions, but for me to continue to represent the people."
But this part caught my attention ...
The video, which came from a surveillance camera at the congressman’s Monroe district office, shows McAllister in an embrace and passionate kiss with one of his staff.
The former staffer who McAllister is with in the video is Melissa Anne Hixon Peacock, 33, of Sterlington.
Adam Terry, McAllister’s chief of staff, said Peacock was taken off of the payroll during the past 24 hours.
