Duck Dynasty's Willie Robertson goes to Capitol
NEW ORLEANS- U.S. Rep. Vance McAllister is bringing a little bit of Hollywood South to the nation's Capitol to hear President Barack Obama's State of the Union Address.
McAllister said Willie Robertson of the popular reality television series "Duck Dynasty" will be his special guest in the House gallery for Tuesday night's address.
McAllister describes Robertson, CEO of the West Monroe, La.-based Duck Commander enterprise, as a "close friend, constituent and small business owner" who's thankful for the opportunity to attend the event.
Robertson is the son of Phil Robertson, whose anti-gay comments in GQ magazine led to the patriarch's brief suspension by A&E.
The network reversed the suspension after supporters and fans felt he was being censored by the network.
