Jindal Calls On Kissing Congressman To Resign


Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) on Thursday called on Rep. Vance McAllister (R-LA) to resign, after the married congressman was caught kissing his staffer, the Associated Press reported.

Jindal said in a statement that “the best way to get privacy and work on putting his family back together is to resign from Congress.”

The governor called McAllister’s actions “an embarrassment.”

The chairman of the Louisiana Republican Party, Roger Villere, has also called on the congressman to resign.

“Mr. McAllister’s extreme hypocrisy is an example of why ordinary people are fed up with politics. A breach of trust of this magnitude can only be rectified by an immediate resignation,” Villere said in a Thursday statement.

McAllister’s office told the AP that “as of now, there are no plans of resignation.”
