No!

As we all know, Sen. David Vitter, R-La., cheated on his wife with a prostitute in Washington, D.C.  Of course, he’s apologized, and “asked for and received forgiveness from God and my wife in confession and marriage counseling,” so it’s all fine and dandy, and he’ll probably be just fine as long as nothing else from his past comes

U.S. Senator David Vitter visited a Canal Street brothel several times beginning in the mid-1990s, paying $300 per hour for services at the bordello after he met the madam at a fishing rodeo that included prostitutes and other politicians, according to Jeanette Maier, the “Canal Street Madam” whose operation was shut down by a federal investigators in 2001.

After they met, Maier said Vitter became a customer at the Mid-City brothel. He made several visits, she said, but had stopped coming before federal agents raided the brothel.

Well, it’ll all be okay as long as no blogger notices the really icky part

At the New Orleans brothel, Maier said Vitter spent time with several women, but preferred one in particular named Wendy. She said all the girls that were with Vitter described him as a kind, respectful man, who did not talk down to them or use drugs.

“I’m not out to ruin a marriage, I’m out to save a man,” Maier said. “I want his wife to know he’s a good man, I want his children to know he’s a good father. If he had sex out of wedlock, so what? At least he stayed with his children.”

Vitter and his wife, Wendy, have four children ages 13 and under.

Ouch.  That’s gonna leave a mark.

  2. You are correct that the Wendy bit is icky, but what about the bit where they hooked up “at a fishing rodeo that included prostitutes and other politicians”?! What a fun mixer! How much taxpayer money was written off as a business lunch or some shit that really got spent there, one wonders…?

  3. I’m still struggling to figure out what a fishing rodeo even is. Ride ’em catfish?

  4. Maybe they reenact the greatest groupie moments in Led Zeppelin history.

    I guess I must be really sheltered as I don’t know what the heck a “fishing rodeol” involves – other than prostitutes & politicians….oh wait, I may have a mental pict….eew.

    I’ve gotta go shower.

    I was calling Vitter “Spankee”, after what I presume he was fishing for in his brothel hopping, but after this I may have to rename him “Flounder”.

    A fishing rodeo? WTP?

    I’m tellin’ ya, some of these Republicans are good for hours of fun, and I don’t mean the kind where you where chaps and carry a ping pong paddle.

    I don’t know, either, but it’s evoking the “Fresh fish!” scene from The Shawshank Redemption for me–a bunch of pasty, naked politicos running around in abject fear while hookers scream “Fresh fish!” at them.

    It’s a fishing tournament, or several fishing contests all conducted in a festival type atmosphere.

    With prostitutes, I guess . . .

    This makes one wonder if his wife knew about all these different prostitutes…

    You gotta love those family values, or, people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.

    You didn’t just reference the red snapper story, did you?…

    *shakes head and shudders*

  12. Well, at least he won’t call out the wrong name at night.

  13. I don’t know, either, but it’s evoking the “Fresh fish!” scene from The Shawshank Redemption for me–a bunch of pasty, naked politicos running around in abject fear while hookers scream “Fresh fish!” at them.

    Okay, ‘Liss, I TOTALLY didn’t need that image shared with me first thing in the morning … now I am going to be wanting a shower for the rest of the day … *shudder*

    “wear chaps” not “where chaps”.

  15. NameChanged

    Very creative. I wonder if prostitute Wendy would do stuff (er, “stroke his ego”) that wife Wendy wouldn’t do, so he could still have “family” values and get the fun sex too. Madonna/whore situation much?

  16. Wait. The article says “prostitutes and other politicians”.

    Shouldn’t that be the other way round?

  18. This is my favorite part. It’s a response from one his Republican co-wankers.

    “It’s really an issue between he and his family and God, and that has been dealt with, thankfully,” said Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C.

    Amazing how level headed people become when it’s their friend dipping the Old Cheesestick in someone else’s Marinara.

    If hypocrisy were fatal, Washington would be a Ghost Town.

  19. Constant Comment

    I read somewhere that the prostitute Wendy went by the name of “Leah.” Vitter eventually asked what her real name was and when he found out it was the same name as his wife, he was freaked out and said he couldn’t see her anymore…

    Check this out

    Some top Republicans are discussing whether to ask U.S. Sen. David Vitter to resign and packaging a deal with Democratic Gov. Kathleen Blanco to appoint a place-holding Republican to take his place.
