Today, the nation learned that freshman Congressman Vance McAllister (R- Duck Dynasty) is, in fact, a quack. Last November, McAllister stunned the Louisiana political commentariat and soundly defeated State Senator Neil Riser, a victory that many attribute to the support he received from Phil and Willie Robertson from the hit reality television show “Duck Dynasty.” McAllister, who ran on a family values platform, emphasizing his Christian faith and his disdain for Washington politicians, was caught, on camera, cheating on his wife with one of his staffers, a woman named Melissa Anne Hixon Peacock.
Mrs. Peacock and her husband Heath were close friends of the McAllister family and major donors to his campaign. Recently, according to my sources, both the Congressman and his wife posted comments on Mrs. Peacock’s Facebook account, which has now been deleted.

At first blush, this may seem like yet another story about a hypocritical politician, and no doubt, Congressman McAllister is a hypocrite.
