‘Kissing Congressman’ An ‘Embarrassment’ Says Lousiana Governor
Governor Bobby Jindal says Vance McAllister, the Louisiana congressman who was seen kissing a staffer on video is an “embarrassment” and should step down. Roll Call reports that Jindal made his remarks while campaigning in Iowa. Hmm, Jindal in Iowa–but that’s another story.
Look, he originally made the right decision when he decided not to run for reelection,” Jindal told CQ Roll Call during a visit to the Iowa State Fair on Saturday. “I said he should have stepped down at the time. I think he’s making a mistake, I think he should, I think he should’ve stuck to his original decision and not go back inside to try to run again. I think it’d be better for him, he said he wanted some time for privacy and to spend that time with his family, I think that’d be a good thing for him to do.”
“I think it’s been an embarrassment to him, the district, and the state,” Jindal added.
