Eric Cantor Calls On Vance McAllister To Resign | by By MATTHEW DALY Posted: 04/29/2014 4:24 pm EDT Updated: 04/29/2014 5:59 pm EDT WASHINGTON (AP) — House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has told Louisiana Rep. Vance McAllister he should resign in the wake of a video showing him kissing a married female aide, but the embattled Republican husband and father says he won't give up his seat. "I'm not going to run away. And I believe that I'm not going to leave my district voiceless again for the second time," McAllister said Tuesday after meeting with Cantor, R-Va. A Cantor spokesman said the majority leader told McAllister he should step down. McAllister had already said he would not run for re-election and apologized for conduct he called a "personal failure." Cantor spokesman Rory Cooper said the majority leader believes that Republicans should hold themselves to a high moral standard and that McAllister's conduct didn't meet that standard. Cantor's comments were first reported by Politico. McAllister was elected to Congress last year after Rodney Alexander, R-La., resigned to join Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal's cabinet. Alexander said Monday he will not seek election to Congress. Jindal and state Republican Party Chairman Roger Villere called on McAllister to resign after a Louisiana newspaper released a grainy security tape that showed McAllister kissing Melissa Peacock, an aide and family friend, in the congressman's district headquarters. McAllister apologized and Peacock resigned, along with the congressman's district director, who was suspected of releasing the video. McAllister had stayed out of public sight since the scandal erupted three weeks ago, canceling events for therapy sessions and spending time with his wife and five children during Congress' Easter recess. McAllister returned to Washington late Monday and has voted on several bills. ___ COMMENT: I, fully agree with Eric Canter. However, at the same time it would be fair for the equity of Justice that Eric Canter makes should confessional statement in the congress. To the effect that he did not have any illegal sex with his sisters, cousins, own daughters, other women, own mother, sodomized with own brothers and father or any other women/men and his girl friends. The Medias are requested to hold sustained investigations on his confessional contents. The Investigative Journalists are requested to ascertain the variability of the confessional statement. Until then Vance McAllister’s resignation be held in abeyance so that in case Eric Canter is found at fault on any one of the two counts then both should submit their resignations to the proper authorities as per law and without fail..
