McAllister admits to vote for contribution
LOUISIANA – The Ouachita Citizen -- By Zach Parker -- June 6, 2014
Congressman Vance McAllister of Louisiana admitted to voting against legislation in the U.S. House, anticipating he would get a political contribution for his vote.
The Congressman from Swartz spoke about the matter as an example of how “money controls Washington” and how work on Capitol Hill is a “steady cycle of voting for fundraising and money instead of voting for what is right.”
McAllister said he voted "no" on legislation related to the Bureau of Land Management though he did not identify the bill. McAllister said a colleague on the House floor told him he would receive a $1,200 contribution from Heritage Foundation if he voted against the bill.
