Republican Senator on DC Madam Phone List

Family values, bitchez:

Sen. David Vitter, R-La., apologized Monday night for “a very serious sin in my past” after his telephone number appeared among those associated with an escort service operated by the so-called “D.C. Madam.”

Vitter’s spokesman, Joel Digrado, confirmed the statement in an e-mail sent to The Associated Press.

“This was a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible,” Vitter said in the 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.”

Uh huh. Meanwhile, Mr. Can’t-Keep-It-In-His-Pants voted for the Federal Marriage Amendment to ban same-sex marriage (both times), because, ya know, two dudez he doesn’t even know getting hitched might undermine the sanctity of his fucking marriage—unlike frequenting a prostitute.

I imagine Senator Vitter might argue that his marriage is none of my business—and he’s right. Just like it’s none of his business if two women or two men want to get married, but he hasn’t extended the courtesy of MYOB to my gay brothers and sisters, so I shan’t extend it to him.

    But straight prostitution doesn’t give him the ickies, so it is ok. Hypocrisy is getting old.

    BTW–let’s see how many trolls we can get here.

  2. What’s this? Vitter engaged the services of a prostitute? But what do we make of this, from 2004:

    On WSMB radio last Saturday, a caller who identified himself as Elwood asked Vitter about charges, made by a member of the Louisiana Republican State Central Committee in the Weekly that the then-State Representative, had had an affair with a known prosition in the French Quarter. Elwood continued, “Would you be willing to sign an affidavit that you have ever known, met or had relations with one Wendy Cortez.”

    Vitter responded, “I think you know that that alligation is abosultely and completely untrue…I have said that on numerous occassions…I’ll say that in any forum…Unfortuanately, that’s just crass Louisiana politics, now that I am running for the Senate. I have made that clear that it is alll completely untrue…And, it’s obviously politically motivated.”

    Oh, I see. He only has sex with prostitutes in Washington, DC. Like the good Christian man that he is, he was “saving himself” for his eventual arrival in DC as a Congressman and then a Senator. I wonder if he wore a Prostitutey Ring next to his wedding ring, to show his commitment to not pay for sexual encounters until the time was right.

    I tend to think that prostitution is a shitty deal for the actual prostitutes, though I’ve read some arguments for making it legal. But as it is currently practiced it’s a bad thing, so on top of sanctimoniously lying about his proclivities for years, Vitter is an asshole for the way he treats women.

  3. Sadly, the Democratic party in Louisiana is so decimated right now they probably won’t be able to take advantage of this. They lost huge numbers of voters in the wake of Katrina and Rita, and they were practically on life support as it was.

  4. Several years ago, I asked for and received forgiveness from God

    Oh Sure! That makes it all right then. Sanctimonious prick! Another fucking Rethug with an autmatic get out of jail free card and he didn’t even have to suck the great leaders dick to get it. And the worst part, if past performance is any indication, the fucking redneck rubes down in the swamps will buy it once again. Wave the flag and the Bible in front of those twits and you in. Even after the total disaster they made and are still making out of Katrina/NOLA.

    I do despair.

  5. You see, Grumpy, God doesn’t care about endemic poverty. He cares about where your penis is at all times.

    I do want to correct you about something, though. The people in the swamps aren’t the rednecks. They’re Cajuns who tend Catholic and Democratic, and who are fairly liberal as Catholics go. They’re not Berkeleyites by any stretch, but they are a Democratic stronghold as far as those go in Louisiana these days.

    The rednecks live in the north and the central part of the state. Draw an east-west line through the middle of Lake Pontchartrain. North of that line is the Bible Belt, complete with your redneck rubes.

  6. I stand corrrected Brian. But……..Somebody down there elected this asshole……..How many times? And I knew about the people down in the swamps to tell the truth. Flew with one of the McIlhenny family of Tobasco fame and have been down in them there swamps on many an occasion. Even been to Avery Island where they used to make the stuff. Great folks. Do hope I didn’t malign the people down there as it wasn’t my meaning. Only the ones who vote for this prick.

  7. You see, Grumpy, God doesn’t care about endemic poverty. He cares about where your penis is at all times.

    Glad you set an old athiest right about this also seeing as how I am not very well versed in god doings and that sort of thing. I kinda drop out when I read the ten commandments this lot are always spouting and come to the one about “Thou shall Not kill” Then I think of Erik Prince and my feeble little mind blows.

  8. Amazing how the “Party of Family Values” impeached over a blowjob, yet seems to keep falling short of their own self-righteous bar.

    Of course, all these moral failings pale in comparison to the royal fucking the White House continues to give the American people.

  9. But God forgave him. He forgives fundamentalists only. So, it’s technically like the hookers never happened.

  10. Hmmm….I’m going to need to see a note signed by this “God” fellow.

    All that matters with these lobotomized religious fanatics is that you “accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior.” After that, you can pretty much do anything you please. Rape, pillage, torture, kill, even engage in teh gay sex. If you get caught at any of these activities, only the sexual ones matter. Then the drill is a) beat your breast, b) apologize for your “sin”, c) pledge never to do it again and/or enter rehab, d) try harder not to get caught next time.

    Oh, for some reason known only to those who have been lobotomized, none of the above rules apply to any person named “Clinton.”

    We call him “Spankee Vitter” based on an assumption about what he was doing with the hookers.

    See, he looks like a spankee to me. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    Also, I love the press release at his official web site about his support for reauthorizing the abstinence education program. This guy is good for hours of fun. Well, minutes, anyway.

  13. Constant Comment

    Me? I’m still waiting for acknowledgment that Dick Cheney used these services during his Halliburton days, as has been alleged. Payback is a beautiful thing…

  14. Thank GOD Louisiana has Bobby Jindal, one of the most ineffective members of Congress in the 2000s, to lead the state away from evil Democratic Blanco and Nagin and into new levels of less-than-mediocrity.
    Dear god, I don’t miss my home state.
    Oh, and as for the location of rednecks, it’s true. But you forgot that those “other” people – the Cajuns and whatnot – we called Coonasses.

    Another Republican for the Hypocricy pile. Do they not get that if you talk the talk “family values, abstinance only sex education, honor your committments” they have to walk the walk? Faith in action isn’t about saying “I have sinned,” it’s about acting on what you believe every day. If you believe all people have value, (that means gays, blacks, illegal immigrants) you don’t promote hate speech, don’t tolerate biggotry. If you believe that marriage is a sacrament, you don’t fuck around with prostitutes.

    I think the “holy” Republicans need to re-read the definition of hypocrite, then read the effing scriptures.

    Assholes like this give religion a bad name.

  17. Tbogg points out that Vitter got his start when Bob Livingston stepped down during the Lewinsky fiasco after Larry Flynt got some dirt on him having engaged in a little hanky-panky.

  18. Reporters and bloggers are searching the released phone records even as we speak.

    Let us hope this is only the first lying, misogynist, christopathic, homophobic asshole to be discovered.

    A lot of the phone numbers seem to be hotel ones, so it doesn’t look like it’s going to be easy.

    And yes, I believe private lives should be private, but it’s time to start playing by these fuckers’ own rules.

    Name and shame them ALL. If I believed in a god, I would be praying that Cheney is on the list, but I fear he is too devious to get caught out that way.
