McAllister Admits to Casting Vote for Money

Rep. Vance McAllister (R-LA) admitted to voting against legislation in the U.S. House anticipating he would get a political contribution for his vote, the Ouachita Citizen reports.

McAllister cited his vote 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 that he would receive a $1,200 contribution from Heritage Foundation if he voted against the bill."
