MONROE, La. —
Gordon declined an interview through another McAllister aide.
Land said he supported Riser last year but now considers McAllister “a friend,” enough so that he contributed the maximum $2,600 toward his re-election.
Mayo, the mayor, offered similar sentiments and a cautionary tale to any politician campaigning on personal uprightness: “It’s a dangerous platform to run on for anyone. We all live in glass houses of some variety.”
Indeed, Heath Peacock, the husband of the woman in the video, told CNN that McAllister is “about the most nonreligious person I know” and “broke out the religious card” only for votes.
