National media: McAllister kiss could be kiss of death
MONROE- There was more national attention for the so-called "Kissing Congressman" Friday.
This time, it was from The Washington Post where it was discussed about the likelyhood Vance McAllister will be able to shake the kissing scandal.
Monday, video surfaced of him kissing a woman who was not his wife. McAllister said he will not resign over the ordeal, and asked for privacy as he and his family deal with the issue.
Both Governor Bobby Jindal and the Republican Party of Louisiana asked McAllister to resign.
Editors at the paper found only 39% of previous officeholders were able to get reelected after "scrutiny for sexual harassment, affairs or prostitution, while the rest chose not to run, resigned or lost."
