Senator Hired Escorts

The first names on the Washington D.C. madame's list are slowly leaking to the press.

Senator David Vitter (R-Louisiana) is among those who are tied into the DC madame's escort service. (Let's be real, she ran a prostitution ring.)

Vitter apologized, in Jim Bakker form, for his "mistakes;"

"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."

Personally, I could care less if Vitter played around with hookers outside his marriage or not. I only write about it because he's one of those "family values" Republicans who apparently acted like a hypocrite this whole time.

Anyway, I wonder if this will affect him in uber-conservative Louisiana.
