This only happened because gays can get married now, I'm sure.
[Louisiana's] Fifth District Congressman Vance McAllister, who campaigned for office last fall as a devout Christian and devoted husband and father, was caught in video surveillance two days before Christmas passionately embracing and kissing one of his congressional aides.
The aide, identified as Melissa Anne Hixon Peacock, is married to one Heath Peacock, long-time friend of McAllister as well as a big ol' campaign donor, to the tune of $5,200. Ouch.

McAllister, thus far, has been only known as the guy who brought the Duck Dynasty guy to the State of the Union Address in January. He won his seat in a special election last fall to replace Rep. Rodney Alexander, who left the House to take a post in Gov. Bobby Jindal’s administration. McAllister clearly wanted to be known for his family values.

On weekends, McAllister has Sunday breakfast with his wife, Kelly Duncan, and five children—Anna Claire Rogers, Emilie Kathryn McAllister, Duncan Michael McAllister, Vance Michael McAllister II (aka “Deuce McAllister”) and Eva Grave McAllister.

It’s a tradition he says he will continue when he comes to Congress.

“We have Sunday morning breakfast before church,” McAllister said. “I don’t do the dishes, but I do cook. I’m the griller.”

That's going to be one awkward breakfast come Sunday.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
