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.
He told The Times-Picayune at the time, "I think if nothing else comes out, and this is all there is, then three weeks from now, this will all be behind" Vitter.
"A video showing him engaged in conduct unbecoming a member of Congress, on public time, in a public office, with one of his employees, was the focus of the national press for days. I call on Mr. McAllister to put the interests of his nation, state and party above his own and step aside," Villere added.
