Republican Louisiana Sen. David Vitter, whose phone number was linked to Deborah Jeane Palfrey, the so-called "D.C. Madam," says that he is sorry for a "serious sin" and that he has already made peace with his wife.
Palfrey is awaiting trial on racketeering charges related to a prostitution ring she allegedly ran.
"This was a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible," Vitter said Monday evening 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."

And what is the first word in the ABC News story? REPUBLICAN. I’m sure they will rush to publish the names of the Democrats on that list. /sarcasm
You have to wonder about people in the public eye who do this sort of thing. A total DEE DEE DEE.
Betcha anything the “partial” list will be released right before the 2008 elections, and guess which letter will be by every name.
I don’t think we have heard the last of that list.
There have only been, what, 2 'disclosures' so far? This guy and a Bush administration official?
Bet there are a lot of Dems and Libs that will never be similarly 'disclosed'....
Out of all of the thousands of phone calls that were supposed to be on these lists, we’re to believe that a newly elected Republican is the only person of note on these lists?
I sure wish he wouldn’t have contacted the agency, but we all owe a debt of gratitude to Sen. Vitter for his vigorous arguments in shooting down the amnesty bill. He was tenacious in presenting numerous arguments against the bill, so let’s keep that in mind. I actually thought (and still do think) there’s a chance for him to run for President in at some point in the future.
Do we know who bought the list? Was it ABC? If so, it might be important to start a movement to get the ENTIRE list released now so the MSM can’t cherry pick names on the list during the 2008 elections.
He has perhaps been best known nationally for criticizing the federal government’s response to Hurricane Katrina, opposing Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers, fighting for the Federal Marriage Amendment and endorsing Giuliani.
They'll disclose the others as soon as they get through the numerous listings of a "William Jefferson Clinton"...
You can search by specific phone number, only, at her web-site.
Maybe if some hacker could get in and get his/her hands on the imbedded DB ....
People will get ratted out right and left.
Punch on keyword "VITTER"
Also he is a prominant Rudy supporter.
I haven’t really been following this story, because I really don’t care about it, but is this the only name that has been released? I find it impossible to believe his was the only high profile name on the list....
‘D.C. Madam’-Rudy Supporter!?
She seems like the type who’d be for a pro-abort, urban cross-dresser...
Vitter, not her.
Thank you for pointing this out, Joann37. While I am disappointed that Vitter did this, I am glad he is representing us in LA. He has been a good senator and much better than the Landrieu/Breaux duo we had for years. Now we just have Landrieu to work on replacing with another hard-line conservative. As for his support of Giuliani, don’t know about that. But I like what Vitter’s done for us so far with regards to Amnesty and other important issues.
