U.S. Rep. Vance McAllister’s top aide said the congressman will send a letter to House Speaker John Boehner on Wednesday morning requesting an FBI investigation concerning the leak of a video from a security camera in McAllister’s Monroe District Office.
The video, which was publicly posted Monday, showed the married congressman sharing a passionate embrace and kiss with former staffer Melissa Anne Hixon Peacock, who also is married. Peacock has since resigned.
“It’s a serious breach,” said Adam Terry, McAllister’s chief of staff.
Does this cat, who has only been in Washington for a few months, really think that Boehner’s going to life the phone and ask the FBI to investigate this tawdry mess?
I don’t think this is going to work either:
West Monroe minister Danny Chance on Tuesday said McAllister’s Monroe District Office manager leaked the video of the congressman’s tryst.
Chance, pastor of Christian Life Church, also said Monroe District Office manager Leah Gordon said she was taking the video to state Sen. Mike Walsworth, R-West Monroe, and Jonathan Johnson, who worked for former U.S. Rep. Rodney Alexander, R-Ruston.
“I’m not taking up for the congressman; what he did was wrong,” said Chance, who said he didn’t know if Gordon ever took the video to Walsworth and Johnson. “But I just feel like there is a conspiracy to bring Vance down and destroy him. For someone on his staff to do that is wrong.”
Yeah, he’s taking up for the congressman. If this woman staffer is responsible, it was because she was disgusted by his behavior, and wanted him exposed … or maybe he had been hitting on her, and this was her way of protecting herself. In any case, why is a pastor getting involved in this fight?
