In the video, which shows the inside of Vance McAllister’s office, the politician can be seen kissing a woman that works for him. The woman is a part-time aide that was added to McAllister team the day after he was elected. A large part of McAllister’s campaign included citing his Christian faith and marriage of 16 years in a heavily Republican area, Politico notes.

The woman seen kissing Vance McAllister in the video is Melissa Anne Hixon Peacock. Peacock is also married and is no longer an aide to McAllister. McAllister claims that the recorded incident was the first time he had relations with someone outside of his marriage. He still plans to run for re-election, reports CBS News.

“There’s no doubt I’ve fallen short and I’m asking for forgiveness,” Vance McAllister told Politico. “I’m asking for forgiveness from God, my wife, my kids, my staff, and my constituents who elected me to serve.”
