(AP) - A freshman Louisiana congressman endorsed by the bearded men of the "Duck Dynasty" reality TV show is apologizing after a newspaper published video of him kissing a woman who isn't his wife.

Rep. Vance McAllister issued a statement today saying he's fallen short and seeks forgiveness. The Ouachita (WAH'-shih-tah) Citizen reports the kiss is seen on surveillance video from McAllen's district office in Monroe.
