Sen. Vitter Apologizes for His Link to ‘D.C. Madam’

Rising Star in GOP Admits to Alleged ‘D.C. Madam’

By JAKE TAPPER

July 10, 2007 — Republican Louisiana Sen. David Vitter, whose phone number was linked to Deborah Jeane Palfrey, the so-called “D.C. Madam,” says that he is sorry for a “serious sin” and that he has already made peace with his wife…

Until his disclosure Monday, Vitter had been a rising star in the Republican social conservative movement.

“I don’t believe there’s any issue that’s more important than this one,” Vitter said in June 2006, about the importance of a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage

At another time, speaking at the Lafayette Parish Republican Executive Committee luncheon, Vitter compared same-sex marriage to hurricanes Katrina and Rita…

In 1999, after designated House Speaker Rep. Bill Livingston, R-La., abruptly resigned after disclosures of numerous affairs, Vitter successfully ran to succeed him representing suburban New Orleans…

Vitter quickly became the Louisiana delegation’s most conservative member against abortion even in cases of rape and incest and against gambling and he secured power through his seat on the House Appropriations Committee…

Funny, there is no need to play “guess that party affiliation” here.

Also note how ABC points out Mr. Vitter’s “hypocrisy” of disclaiming against same-sex marriages whilst visiting a prostitute.

Such “hypocrisy.”
