Vance McAllister, Louisiana Congressman, Admits Kissing Staffer in Surveillance Video

by at .  Updated at . Comments

U.S. Congressman Vance McAllister (R-LA) has admitted that video surveillance footage, allegedly showing him kissing a staffer who is not his wife, is him.

First reported by the Ouachita Citizen, a West Monroe, La., newspaper in his district, the grainy video came from an anonymous source last December.

It shows a man turning off the lights in a hallway before briefly exiting the frame. When he comes back in frame, he is joined by a woman and they kiss passionately.

None of the footage, which the newspaper says was shot in Vance McAllister’s Monroe district office, clearly shows the faces of the two individuals.

The woman is identified as his district scheduler, Melissa Anne Hixon Peacock, 33. On Monday, McAllister issued a statement admitting he is the man on video:

“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.”

Busted!

“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.”

McAllister won a November 16 special election to replace Rodney Alexander, who was named the secretary of the Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs in August.

McAllister campaigned as a devout Christian, using his faith and his 16-year marriage to appeal to conservative voters in the Northern Louisiana district.

In January, he invited Willie Robertson, a member of the controversial reality-television show Duck Dynasty, to be his guest at the State of the Union address.
