West Monroe -- Governor Bobby Jindal is now among those calling on Congressman Vance McAllister to resign following the release of video showing McAllister kissing an aide.

The Jindal administration released this statement to KTVE/KARD:

"Congressman McAllister’s behavior is an embarrassment and he should resign. He says he wants privacy to work on his issues with his family. The best way to get privacy and work on putting his family back together is to resign from Congress."

KTVE/KARD has reached out to McAllister's congressional office for reaction to Jindal's statement, but has yet to receive a response.
