Seems that s0-called conservative, Christian, family values spouting LA congressman Vance McAllister has been caught on camera kissing a female who is NOT his wife. The father of 5 children, who's been married for 17 years, has admitted that "he's fallen short, and asked for forgiveness."
Some are equating this with the David Vitter and Mark Sandford scandals.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Forget all the fake sanctimony, the pious hypocrisy.
The lady in question is a long-time McAllister staffer. She' s on his payroll. He's put his girlfriend on the taxpayer's dime. That's a crime.
Even worse, the lady and her husband ( who just happens to be a long-time friend of McAllister,) donated $10,400 to McAllister's campaign last year.
That's a kickback, plain and simple, folks.
That's a crime, pure and simple.
Even Wilbur Mills, who stashed his mistress, the Argentine stripper Fannie Foxe, on his office payroll ( where she admitted she couldn't type) never asked her to give back a portion of her salary.
Boehner and Cantor need to have a conversation with McAllister today, and accept his resignation tomorrow.
