BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - An organizer says Republican U.S. Rep. Vance McAllister canceled an appearance before a tea party group as he continues to stay out of sight after a video showed him kissing a married aide.
Flournoy says McAllister apologized and explained he was attending family counseling all week. Of the explanation, Flournoy said: “That’s his top issue. He’s got to get things straight with his family.”
The married father of five hasn’t appeared publicly since the video surfaced last week.
Requests for comment were not immediately returned by McAllister staff members.
