Ed Tarpley Will Run for Vance McAllister’s House Seat

ed tarpleyPINEVILLE, La. (AP) — Former Grant parish District Attorney Ed Tarpley says he will run for the U.S. House seat currently held by Republican Vance McAllister of Swartz.

The Alexandria attorney’s long announcement Saturday did not mention that the faith-and-family McAllister was caught on video in a long kiss with an aide married to one of his friends.

Tarpley says the incumbent’s public statements convinced him that the 5th District needs a stronger, more conservative voice.

He focused more on U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama, saying the Justice Department has failed to enforce laws and the president has disregarded existing law in implementing the Affordable Care Act. Tarpley said he would work to repeal the law.

McAllister has served less than five months.
