NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A top official in Rep. Vance McAllister’s office says the Louisiana Republican will not seek re-election.

McAllister chief of staff Adam Terry told The Associated Press Monday that McAllister intends to complete his term. The congressman from Schwarz, Louisiana, previously had said he would not resign. The general election is in December.

A video released earlier this month showed McAllister kissing a female aide at his office.

After the video was released, McAllister apologized. The aide resigned. Another aide accused of releasing the video later resigned.

McAllister, a married father of five, has stayed out of public sight, saying he would be with his family during Congress’ Easter recess. He could not immediately be reached Monday for comment.
