More Fun for Senator David Vitter

The name (Republican Senator) David Vitter, the subject of a post two days ago, is back in the news today. It seems he has a long history of visting prostitutes, not just in Washington DC, but in his homestate of Louisana also.

Today Jeanette Maier, the former DC madam, announced that Senator Vitter was a client at her now defunct Canal Street brothel in New Orleans. Ms Maier pleaded guilty to running the whorehouse in 2002.

In typical Republican fashion, the situation reeks of hypocrosy, after all these as the family values people.

In 1998 David Vitter replaced Republican Congressman Bob Livingston after he abruptly resigned after disclosures of numerous affairs. At the time he argued that an adulterous affair was ground for resignation, stating "I think Livingston’s stepping down makes a very powerful argument that Clinton should resign as well and move beyond this mess. [Atlanta Journal and Constitution, 12/20/98]

As for his wife Wendy, several years when asked how she would handle the news of her husband having an affair she told a Newhouse News reporter, "I’m a lot more like Lorena Bobbitt than Hillary. If he does something like that, I’m walking away with one thing, and it’s not alimony, trust me.”

Does Wendy have both hands full, or just a part of one?

Personally, I believe we need to grow up and legalize prostitution - regulate and tax this service. For once, CEOs and Senators would be contributing to our treasury.

I do not condemn Senator Vitter for his habitual adulterous affairs with call girls, but I disapprove of the lies, judgment and sermons from these morally bankrupt hypocrites.
