Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La., now says he will not seek re-election.

This all comes after a video was released earlier this month, showing McAllister kissing a woman aide in his office.

After the video surfaced, McAllister apologized and the aide resigned. Another aide accused of releasing the video also resigned.

We caught up with some of McAllister's constituents to talk over his decision.

"If it had been behind closed doors, it's one thing. But, you know, it was out in the open, caught on camera, so I think he needs to go," said Delton Seale of Bogalusa.

"I think it's a good idea. I really do. Because he screwed up big time," said Dorothy Hill of Bogalusa.
