The head of the Louisiana GOP filed a federal ethics complaint Wednesday against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, claiming the Nevada Democrat has misused taxpayer money for campaign purposes ahead of the 2014 midterm elections as part of his ongoing crusade against GOP mega-donors Charles and David Koch.
Louisiana Rep. Vance McAllister stayed out of sight as calls grew louder from Republicans back home demanding the GOP congressman's resignation after he was caught on video kissing the wife of a friend.
The outcries from Louisiana Republican leaders calling for Rep. Vance McAllister to resign after he was caught on video kissing a married woman stand in sharp contrast to the muted GOP response seven years ago during Sen. David Vitter's prostitution scandal.
The Louisiana Republican Party's efforts to defeat Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu are getting an assist from the national GOP.
The leadership of the Republican Party of Louisiana isn't changing as major federal and state elections loom.
"The campaign activities discussed above implicate numerous Senate runes and must be investigated," Mr. Villere said. "If the investigation confirmed that these activities violate Senate Rules, Senator Reid must be held accountable."
"Specifically, Senator Reid has violated Senate rules that prohibit Members of the Senate from using websites located on the Senate.gov host-domain for partisan political campaign purposes as well as the prohibitions regarding using official resources for political purposes," Mr. Villere wrote. "Therefore, we respectful request that the Committee investigate Senator Reid's misuse of taxpayer resources and sanction him appropriately."
