And of course, he’s a big “family values” guy. “Representative” Vance McAllister, a “Christian” with a wife and five kids was caught on camera canoodling with a married staff member. Depressingly common behavior for “Republican” Fundagelicals, you’ll agree. And after he got caught, he decided to keep his cushy job and fire the woman with whom he was f***ing around. Sadly, that too is common.

Here is the likewise-common “values” campaign statement:

McAllister ran on a faith and family-based platform and featured his wife and five children in campaign ads. “Here at the McAllister house, we have a big family breakfast every Sunday before church. Kelly does the cooking, and I do the dishes,” McAllister said of his wife during a campaign ad. “It’s here in this house that Kelly and I worked to instill the values of faith, family, and country in our five children. If you will trust me with your vote, you can count on me to take those values to Washington.”

Here is a picture of him living his real values with Mrs. Melissa Anne Hixon Peacock:

And here is (part) of what he said after getting busted:

Peacock has been “taken off the payroll in the past 24 hours,” according to The News-Star, who spoke with McAllister’s chief of staff. The congressman said that he will run for re-election, “unless there is an outcry for me not to serve, and so far there has been an outpouring of support, not for my actions, but for me to continue to represent the people.”

Dafuq? No, really, dafuq???? Two married people, both cheating on their spouses. One keeps his six-figure gig, and shit-cans the other. The Congressman keeps his gig and fires the woman he was using.

That, if you like, is “Republican outreach to women”. Females, you have been warned. The GOP will screw you big-time, whether or not they kiss you first.

Mark Sanford took another hike recently: he was trespassing at his ex-wife’s house, and got caught. She caught him sneaking out, using his cell phone as a flashlight. No word on what he was doing in her house, or who he did it to. Or how often he has done it before and not been busted.

Not everyone who trespasses is a pervert, of course (after all, be might have been stealing something instead), but we have reason to wonder in his case. You may remember Markie as the disgraced former governor who betrayed his oath of office, lied to people, and cheated on his wife (all on the taxpayer’s dime). So he has already demonstrated a disregard for the rule of law, and a penchant for out-of-bounds sexual activity.

This writer has always seen Sanford as a crooked, hypocritical, lying cheat: a typical politician, in other words. But sneaking around your ex-wife’s house in the middle of the night? People, that is really, seriously creepy behavior. The sort of thing we associate with flashers, child molesters, and other sex-related criminals.

The only thing more troubling than this Peeping Mark’s behavior is the large number of people who plan to vote for him in a few days. That, friends, is some seriously sick thinking.
