LOUISIANA (KALB News Channel 5) --  Controversial Louisiana Congressman Vance McAllister only has a little more than $8,000 in his campaign account according to a new report published this week by Politico.

The political news website says says the congressman's finances are in poor shape.

He reported owes more than $9,000 to law firm K&L Gates and nearly $150,000 to Red Print Strategy for campaign consulting.

He also loaned nearly $400,000 of his own money to help fund his campaign last year.

McAllister has said he has no plans to step down after video surfaced of him kissing a staffer.

Politico reports that, while the congressman is independently wealthy and could presumably fund his own re-election campaign, his campaign finances are still struggling.
