Republican U.S. Rep. Vance McAllister says he intends to steer clear of public events until he returns to Washington at the end of Congress' Easter break.
His office issued a statement Tuesday that McAllister "is with his wife and family for the remainder of the Easter recess."
Last week a video surfaced that showed the father of five kissing a married aide. He issued an apology almost immediately. His office later said the aide had resigned.
Spokeswoman Jennifer Dunagin said McAllister's offices are operating. She said McAllister "was elected to do a job, and he looks forward to returning to D.C. following the end of recess."
Congress returns from its two-week holiday on April 28.
