'I'm asking for forgiveness': Married Christian lawmaker apologizes after he's caught on video
UK Daily Mail ^ | April 8, 2014 | Louise Boyle

Posted on 04/08/2014 5:27:08 AM PDT by C19fan

A married, conservative Christian politician with five children who was caught on video kissing a female staffer at his office has offered a contrite apology. GOP Representative Vance McAllister of Louisiana, is allegedly seen on tape passionately kissing a woman believed to be Melissa Anne Hixon Peacock, 33. Surveillance tape from December 23 recorded inside McAllister's office in Monroe, shows him engaged in a stolen clinch with Peacock, who is his district scheduler - and the wife of a childhood friend.

Another politician who could not keep his zipper up. To win his seat he ran as a true "family man". Looks like he is going to go the Vitter and Samford route to keep his job.

I wish guys like this would say:

“I’m resigning from office effective immediately for personal reasons that are my own fault. That is all. Good bye.”

He's gone. He'll be forced to resign ASAP..this is far worse than Vitter:

1. He's on his staff...IOW..he's put his girl friend on the payroll.

2. She and her husband gave $10,000+ to his campaign..That smells of a kickback...it is kickback...

This guy is sleazier than the run of the mill political adulterer and that's saying something. He needs to be run out of office on a rail.

Good that he is contrite and he can be forgiven but that doesn’t take away consequences or forget what has happened.

Vitter is a SENATOR. We need to keep them and go to bat for them. That senator from Nevada? The perfect ‘easing out’ complete with a GOP gov appointing a 2 year successor. House members are a dime-a-dozen.

Of course, the people in his district should fire him, and his wife can forgive him, even though she has every right to divorce him for breaking his marriage vows. Certainly, it shows that he can’t be trusted to keep his word.

It's the local talk radio station, I guess they considered they were showing restraint.

He might be the last candidate the Robertson family will ever endorse. They will probably forgive him but they will not endorse him.

If a pol will lie about his conservatism in his personal life, I’d submit that he’s lying about just about everything else.

I understand now, somebody [probably a Democrat] set him up. Not saying he did not do it, but there was a plan out to get him and he walked into the trap.

Wow, for a Christian family man he is shredding the 10 Commandments.

My advice to the Robertsons: It would be a grave mistake to support this man politically in the future.

Who is your “we?”

Do you have another social liberal with no morals in your pocket?

Power at any price is not worth having, and every idiot who persues that is worth disparaging.

I believe that it was him. He lost sight, if he ever had it, of the fact that the Democrats were his mortal as well as political enemy. While the Democrats preach the ,"My friend from across the aisle" crap, they do not believe in it. Everyone who is not one of them is their enemy. To be destroyed at the first opportunity. They know that sooner or later, everyone screws up or lets their guard down, including them. The difference is that their propaganda machine, a/k/a Main Stream Media, reports the deeds of their enemy and ignores, denies, and/or covers up their shortcomings.

Their wet dream is to get something on Ted Cruz or Trey Gowdy, either real or imagined, that they can exploit.

While the "bitch" might not necessarily set him up, the mole in his hen house surly did.

Old cop expression:

“Badge’ll get you pu$$y;

Pu$$y’ll get your badge.”

Power attracts these women (or they are sent by the opposite party’s operatives; i.e. the death of Nelson Rockefeller). In either case, they are nothing but trouble.
