Married GOP congressman admits to kissing female staffer

Rep. Vance McAllister (R-La.) asked for forgiveness Monday afternoon after a video purporting to show the congressman kissing a female staffer in his congressional office in Louisiana surfaced.

McAllister, who was just elected in a November special election, has been married for 16 years and has five children.

“There’s no doubt I’ve fallen short and I’m asking for forgiveness. I’m asking for forgiveness from God, my wife, my kids, my staff, and my constituents who elected me to serve,” he said in a statement issued from his office. “Trust is something I know has to be earned whether you’re a husband, a father, or a congressman. I promise to do everything I can to earn back the trust of everyone I’ve disappointed.”

He said he was “very sorry” and did not want to make a political statement about the video’s release.

“From day one, I’ve always tried to be an honest man,” he said. “I ran for Congress to make a difference and not to just be another politician. I don’t want to make a political statement on this, I would just simply like to say that I’m very sorry for what I’ve done. While I realize I serve the public, I would appreciate the privacy given to my children as we get through this.”

    Shame on you McAllister, restrain yourself. Although, it is amazing how the democrats get a free pass on their sexual proclivities, seems this degenerate behavior is to be part of what is expected of the libs. Even the dems in House of Cards are sexual and moral degenerates. We have Clinton’s BJ’s in the WH, Edwards illegitimate child while wife is dying; Spitzer and his hookers, Weiner with pictures of his genitals broadcasted, senator with the bathroom antics, Menendez with his jaunts to Latin lands for hookers on taxpayer money, etc. etc. These people in the publics eye seem to be flaunting their own superiority complex thinking they are above it all. They are just showing that I don’t want them representing me.

    It’s funny how politicians will do something like this and then immediately ask God, his wife, etc. for forgiveness. First of all, God isn’t forgiving him or anyone else. If any supreme being is forgiving anyone, it’s Jesus. I am getting tired of politicians who have affairs, and feel that all they need to do to resolve the issue is to ask for forgiveness. One more thing, if you think that this is the first time, or the only time that his gentleman cheated on his wife, you’re wrong.
