WASHINGTON Louisiana Sen. David Vitter apologized Monday for his telephone number showing up on the old phone records of Pamela Martin and Associates, the alleged prostitution ring run in the nation's capital by Deborah Jeane Palfrey.
"This was a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible," Vitter said in a statement.
"Several years ago, I asked for and received forgiveness from God and my wife in confession and marriage counseling. Out of respect for my family, I will keep my discussion of the matter there --with God and them. But I certainly offer my deep and sincere apologies to all I have disappointed and let down in any way," he wrote.
The acknowledgment from Vitter, a Republican who recently won praise from conservatives for his opposition to the immigration reform bill, comes days after U.S. District Court Judge Gladys Kessler lifted a restraining order, allowing Palfrey, 51, to distribute pages of phone records that she and her attorney said contains up to 15,000 names.
On Monday, she released the numbers on her Web site.

Would anyone be interested in setting up a live thread for freepers looking into these phone records?
Sad. Maybe these public humiliations will make others think twice before they do something similar.
Something about his vote against the stupid amnesty bill, most likely. The media and their puppet masters are reeling from the realization that we out here can and do think and that we are growing more unimpressed with them.
In fact this type of admission and character reparation was all the public had wanted from the icky former President but the masters and the media still don’t get it. They’re gonna be pissed to find that this story goes nowhere.
More to come, I predict.
Not to excuse sleazy behavior at all- that’s a different subject from “why now?”, I assume.
However, if he was a rat it would be a resume enhancement.
...no mention of party. He’s a Dem I take it?
Nope, an R with a pretty conservative record to boot.
Is it too late to assume that he was just polling his constituents?
Well, I am so confused. How could he need to ask forgiveness when the owner of the escort service says nothing illegal was going on?
He's anti-amnesty and is the first Politician to get thrown under the bus.
She released all of the records and he, knowing that he’d be somewhere in there, conducted a pre-emptive strike. At least, that’s the way I read it - since I don’t see any mention of anyone “discovering” his phone number or anything of the sort.
Is this a pre-emption by the RATS, i.e. what OTHER names are there that will make the RATS look bad?
(BTW any reference to Slick Willie is irrelevant, he’d gain popularity if he was outed as a Palfrey John).
OK, Vitter should wait until a GOP Gov. (Bobby Jindal) is elected, then resign before the expiration of his term (2010 I believe).
Well, after all, he *is* from Louisiana. I wonder what everbody else’s excuse will be?
That said, wasn't he one of those who voted for shamnesty along with Bush and the other traitors?
Because he's a Republican. Need one really have to ask?
Put this incident against the mayor of Los Angeles and his shenanigans. Who’s going to get the bad press? Oh, that’s a tough one. NOT!
