Lemme get it out of the way… i would support the legalization of prostitution if done properly. Although i’ve known a handful of people that did it for a quick dollar and the thrill of doing something taboo/illegal, most of the prostitutes that i’ve been aware of live very marginal lives, and don’t need any more persecution than what life has already thrown their way.
But Vitter? Ha ha ha… That sanctimonious sack of shit has been caught with his pants down again.
Yeah, it’s common knowledge that he solicits the services of hookers. Every time the rumor creeps up, he denies it as the work of his political enemies. He refuse to accept responsibility for his own actions, and continues to beat the drum on “morality” issues.
I just started reading this blog last week, and it has a good overview on his past. This Daily Kos thread has some links too, including one to a Salon story that also links him to a “secret alliance” with David Duke.
Bob Livingston went down during the Clinton era. Now Vitter gets caught (although now he’s a senator… people have noted that certain media sources say this DC Madam incident happened before he was a senator, but neglect to mention that Vitter was in Congress.) I am eager for Jindal to get his comeuppance for his smarmy “morality.”
