An aide to Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La., says the congressman will ask the FBI to investigate the leak of a video showing the lawmaker kissing an aide, according to USA TODAY.
The News Star in Monroe, a daily newspaper in the congressman’s district, says McAllister will make the investigation request Wednesday by sending a letter to House Speaker John Boehner.
McAllister, who promoted traditional Christian values throughout his campaign, has not voted on the House floor this week after the video given to The Ouchita Citizen was posted Monday. The video shows McAllister passionately kissing Melissa Peacock, who has been removed from the congressman’s payroll.
