Video: Louisiana GOP chair calls on congressman to resign following kissing incident

Party chairman Roger Villere urged Representative Vance McAllister to resign in a written statement at about the same time that U.S. House Speaker John Boehner told reporters that McAllister has "got decisions that he has to make."
