‘Kissing Congressman’ May Reverse Decision And Run After All
Louisiana Congressman Vince McAllister is considering running to keep his seat, which would be a reversal of his previous decision not to run, one made after video surface of the married “family values” politician kissing a staffer.
McAllister, a political newcomer who won a special election in Louisiana’s 5th Congressional District this past November, faced calls to resign from fellow Republicans in April after a Louisiana newspaper posted video of the married congressman kissing an aide in his congressional office.
On April 28, McAllister released a statement saying he would not run again and describing his conduct as a “personal failure.”
However, McAllister’s office told Fox News late Tuesday that he is rethinking his decision after seeing polling data placing him ahead of other challengers.
