Louisiana Republican Party Chairman Roger Villere has been trying to reach 5th District U.S. Rep. Vance McAllister, R-Swartz, since Tuesday night to ask him to resign, The Hill reported Wednesday.
Villere didn’t respond to an email from The News-Star asking for comment.
But Jason Dore’, executive director of the state party, did reply to an email from The News-Star that said, “The chairman attempted to call the congressman (Tuesday night). As far as I know, the congressman hasn’t returned his call yet. As to the purpose of the call, I’m not sure.”
In a later email to The News-Star, Dore’ said, “(Villere) won’t be talking about the McAllister situation while he is still trying to reach him.”
Adam Terry, McAllister’s chief of staff, had no comment when asked about whether the congressman has heard from Villere.
