Senator's Number on Escort Service List

Senator's Number on Escort Service List

Tuesday, July 10, 2007 WASHINGTON - Louisiana Sen. David Vitter, whose telephone number was disclosed by the so-called "D.C. Madam" accused of running a prostitution ring, says he is sorry for a "serious sin" and that he has already made peace with his wife.

"This was a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible," Vitter said Monday in a printed 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."

Vitter's spokesman, Joel Digrado, confirmed the statement Monday evening in an e-mail to The Associated Press after a statement purported to be from Vitter was received by to the AP bureau in New Orleans.

It said his telephone number was on old phone records of Pamela Martin and Associates before he ran for the Senate.

Maybe this is a Freudian glimpse into why Sen. Vitter is supporting a serial adulterer RINO, Rooty JulieAnnie, for president. I certainly can’t imagine any other reason.

Time will tell but Vitter’s cheating may help pick him up a Republican opponent in 2010.

Oh, but wait, it’s Louisiana, a state that re-elected the Godzillla of Adulterers, Edwin Edwards, who not only admitted to philandering but flaunted it proudly, THREE times.

Edwin Edwards: “the only way I can lose this election is to be found in bed with a live boy or a dead girl”.

Louisiana does LOVE it’s rogues.

Vitter has stepped up, admitted his infidelity, resolved the matter with his family, and changed his ways. To my mind, this is more of a positive story about the man than a negative one. I don’t demand or expect that anybody be perfect.

Contrast Vitter’s behavior with Clinton, who had (and presumably still has) a continuing problem, and never told the truth or resolved anything.

I hope he gets an opponet in the primary in 2010. Family values my butt, this guy should resign. This guy is a moron.
"In the metropolitan area in general, in the huge majority of areas, it's not rising at all. It's the same or it may be lowering slightly. In some parts of New Orleans, because of the 17th Street breach, it may be rising and that seemed to be the case in parts of downtown. I don't want to alarm everybody that, you know, New Orleans is filling up like a bowl. That's just not happening," said Vitter on August 30.

Keep trying it will come up eventually. You’ll get the same thing trying to access the phone records as well but they do come up eventually.

Lots of senators and representatives wives must be checking the list.

Yes, they like certain Democrat rogues, but they disdain Republican rouges like David Duke and Buddy Roemer too. I don’t think this will sink Vitter in 2010, but there may be more there.

Actually, as with the Libby pardon..this will revive the memories of all the “fun” times of the C linton administration. Though the loony left will attempt to embarass the GOP with hearings and comments about the Libby pardon and Vitter’s sins..the real loser in all this is Hillary..

What Vitter did was wrong, but it was years ago. The ONLY reason his name is coming out now is PAYBACK for his position against Illegal Immigration. That is how Washington works.

Yoga helps.

I have confidence that Vitter has changed his ways because every reporter in Washington is going to be following him around with a telephoto lens for the next five years. If he is still fooling around, he will be found out by Friday.

Remember when Gary Hart(pence) challenged the Washington Press Corps to follow him around, and got busted with a broad almost immediately? The folks in Washington learned that lesson. You don't make a statement like this unless you know darn well your laundry is clean.

If Vitter was still messing around, he would have just hunkered down and tried to ride this one out. A statement like his, that he has reconciled with his wife and given up his sinful ways, is like waving a red flag in front of a bull, as far as the Washington Press Corps is concerned. They are going to come after him hard, and he has to know that.

Wrong. The man is a moral reprobate who should immediately resign from office in disgrace. Cheating on one's wife, particularly with four children, should not be a forgivable offense for any public official.

We, as a society, must roll back the scummy moral culture that Bill Clinton has wrought. It's an absolute joke that his (Clinton's) womanizing is now looked at as part of his charm.

Vitter should demonstrate how truly shameful his actions were by being a man, resigning from the Senate, and going back home. Period.

____________

I have a theory. Democrats are obviously incredibly promiscuous. That being the case, there are always other dems with whom other dems can ‘hook up’, for free, anonymous, no strings attached sex. Republicans, well, at least those who are subject to their animal instincts, can’t stoop to having sex with the promiscuous dems, and so are forced to have sex with prostitutes.

/tongue in cheek

There are dozens of Dem’s on the list, but don’t expect the MSM to disclose ANY of them.
The judge should order that ALL names be revealed, to prevent this (sorry) cherry picking.

We are just going to have to disagree on that point. Just because the man (oh, fill in your own blank... however I characterize it will not be strong enough for the tar-and-feather set) does not mean he should give up his life's work and renege on the promises he made to the voters of his state. He is a Senator, and he was elected to do his job. He should take that responsibility seriously until such time as the voters decide to take that job away.

Ultimately it is up to the voters. If he has mended his ways, I would imagine the voters will be merciful. If he is continuing in his evil ways, I would imagine they will toss him out on his ear.

If he voluntarily came forward and told the painful truth to his wife, worked through the pain and mended his ways, perhaps he will be truthful with you, even when the truth hurts.

I prefer somebody who has grown and learned to somebody who was just born good and never faltered. Come to think of it, I don't know too many of that second type, anyway.

Vitter strongly denies it. I wonder if this is some sort of “dirty trick” [pun intended] to tarnish Vitter because of his strong stance on defeating the immigration bill. It wouldn’t take much for some Dem operative to pay the Madame to include Vitter’s telephone number on the list.

I agree with you, it is wrong for them to do “cherry picking” that was a good point, this just gives way to more corruption and it’s helping this country to be hijacked by those without any conscience. People sin, that’s true, but I hate to see those with evil hearts unfairly prevail.

No he doesn’t. He issued a statement apologizing for his past life “sins” and his office has acknowledged it. There is no “dirty trick” here except for him.

It is the GOP that get busted. The left is the ones offering 10000000000 of $$$$ for info on the ones in the right. If the perps would keep their zippers closed and their minds on their jobs and family this type of thing would not happen, but they always think the grass is greener across the road. Pitty... but I never really liked him in the first place and now I dispise him!

I disagree with the "leave it to the voters" response. We as a society have lost a sense of shame - no matter what we do, there's always an excuse for it. It makes my stomach turn to see Vitter essentially use Bill Clinton's excuse of "I've apologized to my wife, so everything's okay". B.S.

One's marital vows are the most important promise a human being makes to another. He has pissed all over them. He has humiliated his children. He now has zero moral authority to lead. He needs to go home.

And it wasn't like he engaged in an affair with a co-worker, where at least his "I was lonely, we worked long hours" crap could make it understandable (although still not forgiveable). No, he went out to pay some skank for sex. What a disgrace.
