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.
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.
