U.S. Rep. Vance McAllister is bringing a little bit of Hollywood South to the nation’s Capitol to hear President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address.
McAllister, R-Swartz, said Willie Robertson of the popular reality
television series “Duck Dynasty” will be his special guest in the House
gallery for Tuesday night’s address.
McAllister describes Robertson, CEO of the West Monroe, La.-based
Duck Commander enterprise, as a “close friend, constituent and small
business owner” who’s thankful for the opportunity to attend the event.
Robertson is the son of Phil Robertson, whose anti-gay comments
in GQ magazine led to the patriarch’s brief suspension by A&E. The
network reversed the suspension after supporters and fans felt he was
being censored by the network.
