Cheating Congressman Declares He’s Blessed to Have a ‘Wonderful Christian Wife’

It’s only September and we already have a winner for the skeeziest political ad of the 2014 election! As you may recall, Representative Vance McAllister of Louisiana went from being known as the congressman who brought the Duck Dynasty guy to the State of the Union, to the “kissing congressman” earlier this year when he was caught on tape making out with a staffer (who happened to be the wife of his childhood friend). McAllister has decided to run for reelection anyway, and on Tuesday he released an ad that attempts to move past the scandal by having his wife explain why she’s lucky to have him.

A man’s character is based on how many times he gets back up and stands again,” says his wife, Kelly McAllister, adding that she feels “blessed to have a husband who owns up to his mistakes, never gives up, always fighting for the good people of Louisiana.” As for the congressman, he’s “blessed with a great family and wonderful Christian wife.” At least voters don’t have to wonder if McAllister will eventually do something that makes their skin crawl?
