LOUISIANA -- Congressman Vance McAllister is asking for forgiveness after a Louisiana newspaper published a video of him kissing a staffer in his office.
The video, published by The Ouachita Citizen, shows black and white surveillance video of a man and woman kissing before leaving a building.
In a statement released Tuesday, McAllister says he's "fallen short" and is "very sorry for what he's done."
McAllister is married and has five children.
McAllister represents the Fifth Congressional District of Louisiana after winning a special election last November, which he ran as a Christian conservative.
