Rep. Vance McAllister (R-LA), who was caught kissing his staffer, will not seek re-election, his office told the News-Star.
After a video showing McAllister kissing his staffer was published earlier in April, the congressman apologized.
“There’s no doubt I’ve fallen short and I’m asking for forgiveness,” he said in a statement. “I’m asking for forgiveness from God, my wife, my kids, my staff, and my constituents who elected me to serve.”
