Another Republican gets caught up in the DC Madam's sheets as he turns up on her sheets of papers with all of those phone numbers, according to cookie jill at skippy's Blog:
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."
..."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."
I am guessing that his time with any escorts was billed as a religious experience?
TPM has updates on this:
Late Update: Headlines that suddenly might be seen in a different light. From 2004: "Congressman Denies Affair With Prostitute, Says Charges Are Politically Motivated" I'll bet.
Later Update: Talked a big game on defending the sanctity of 'traditional' marriage.
[update] This may give some of Louisiana's left a little more breathing room:
Exit Tom DeLay & ARMPAC and TRMPAC,
Enter David Vitter & LCRMPAC
Tom DeLay's corrupt ARM-PAC donated $5,000 to Rodney Alexander, $15,000 to Charles Boustany, $5,000 to "Bobby" Jindal, $10,000 to Billy Tauzin III and $10,000 to David Vitter. Louisiana Republicans and Tom DeLay are old and very close friends.
The Washington Post published a requiem to Tom Delay and his corrupt PACs (Political Action Committees) today, and anyone who is interested in the structure, goals and foundation of Vitter's PAC, which will donate at least $2.5 million to Republicans running for state legislative seats, should read it in full. For the parallels are eery and telling. And if Vitter and his PAC attain their goal of stacking the state legislative bodies with radical conservatives who will impose destructive, extremist agendas and an unfair redistricting plan on the people of Louisiana, just as Tom DeLay's appointed thugs did in Texas, only to have the courts rule their actions unconstitutional, we can expect at least four years of overly partisan and shamelessly corrupt DC and Texas style politics in Baton Rouge.
Looks like Vitter won't be in a position to do much of anything other than try and save his own political hide for now...
[update deux] I tried accessing the list last night to search it, but the servers that had it were crashing from traffic 'cause I was getting error messages and weird stuff.
Here's the link to the site that had it. It is still showing errors now.
As a side note: Skippy is 5 Years old today? That kind of means your links are greying a bit in Bloggers years... Geting better with age, for certain! But don't ya think 2 million hits is aiming low for a Blog like yours? :)
