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.
