Staffer's Husband: McAllister 'Most Non-Religious Person I Know'

Ah, but he honors the conventions when he gets caught!

Wait -- is he saying that a politician would lie about God? Whoa!

The husband of the staffer caught kissing Rep. Vance McAllister (R-LA) says that while the congressman ran as a religious man who cherished family values, he wasn't actually religious.

"I know his beliefs. When he ran one of his commercials, he said 'I need your prayers,' and I asked, 'When did you get religious?' He said, 'When I needed votes,'" Heath Peacock told CNN Tuesday. "He broke out the religious card and he's about the most non-religious person I know."

The Ouichita Citizen on Monday published a video with surveillance footage of McAllister, who is married, making out with his district scheduler, Melissa Peacock.

McAllister on Monday asked for "forgiveness from God, my wife, my kids, my staff, and my constituents who elected me to serve."

Melissa Peacock's husband, however, told CNN "he's apologized to everyone in the world except me."

Melissa Peacock has, of course, been fired.
