Real Life Scandal! Love Rat Congressman Caught Kissing Staffer; Woman Taken Off The Payroll After Smooching Video Goes Viral

Another political sex scandal is brewing in the Bayou, as Congressman Vance McAllister, R-Swartz, is knee-deep in embarrassment after he was caught on camera smooching with a married staffer named Melissa Anne Hixon Peacock.

Peacock, 33, was “taken off the [congressman’s] payroll” this week, according to the congressman’s chief of staff Adam Terry, after the Dec. 23 video surfaced when an anonymous source sent it to a local paper, according to The Ouachita Citizen.

The politician — who had been wed to wife Kelly for 16 years, and has five children with her — has taken to groveling in the wake of the reveal, saying, “There’s no doubt I’ve fallen short and I’m asking for forgiveness.

“I’m asking for forgiveness from God, my wife, my kids, my staff, and my constituents who elected me to serve. Trust is something I know has to be earned whether you’re a husband, a father, or a congressman.

McAllister, who was elected to Louisiana’s 6th Congressional District last autumn, vowed “to do everything I can to earn back the trust of everyone I’ve disappointed.”

“From day one, I’ve always tried to be an honest man. I ran for Congress to make a difference and not to just be another politician. I don’t want to make a political statement on this, I would just simply like to say that I’m very sorry for what I’ve done. While I realize I serve the public, I would appreciate the privacy given to my children as we get through this.”
