Sen. Vitter Asks Voters, "Is it True Love?"

Text messaging is the new trend in well-run campaigns; collect a cell phone number and a campaign can get in touch with volunteers, donors and, eventually, voters.

But some advice: Don’t buy your text messaging service on the cheap. If you do, you may share your service with ads for local bars, dating services or other establishments that may not square with your image.

Hence the snickers when a political operative recently received a text message from the campaign of Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), he of Deborah Jeane Palfrey fame. Vitter’s camp went with a cheap service, and his message included an ad for ... what else? A dating service.

“Is it true love?” asks the ad. The accompanying link guides users to a website where they can find out if their “crush” feels the same way about them; we’re told “David” and “Deborah” is a match.

ITK texted the amorous senator’s campaign as well, hoping to find true love. Instead, we received no comment.

Vitter, this is why you dont text on the cheap! What is he thinking. 2010 is right around the corner.
