Another Washington D.C. Sex Scandal

Well, there's been another sex scandal in Washington. Once again, it's a Republican, and an advocate of abstinence-only sex education, and one who believes that marriage should be a sacred vow between a man and a woman. In fact, in 2003, he proposed an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to ban same sex marriages.

This is the same man that said, "by teaching teenagers that saving sex until marriage and remaining faithful afterwards is the best choice for health and happiness." He also the same politician who said, "The Hollywood left is redefining the most basic institution in human history".

The politician in hot water this time is Bruce Vitter (born May 3, 1961) is a Republican politician, currently serving as the junior U.S. Senator from Louisiana. He was formerly a member of the United States House of Representatives, first elected in 1999, to represent the suburban First Congressional District of Louisiana.

This month, Vitter was identified as a client of "D.C. of an escort service in Washington, D.C., after his phone number was included in a published list of phone records of Pamela Martin and Associates, a company owned and run by Deborah Jeane Palfrey, also known as the "D.C. Madam", which is accused by the U.S. government of being a prostitution service. Hustler magazine identified the phone number and contacted Vitter's office to ask about his connection to Palfrey. The following day, Vitter issued a printed statement:

This was a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible. 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.

The statement containing Vitter's apology said his telephone number was included on phone records dating from his days as a member of the House of Representatives. Phone records show that Vitter's number was called by Palfrey's service five times, the first on October 12, 1999, and the last on February 27, 2001. Two calls were placed while House roll call votes were in progress.

On July 10, Jeanette Maier, the "Canal Street Madam", alleged that Vitter was a customer on more than one occasion in the 1990s, when Maier was identified by federal prosecutors as operating a $300 per hour brothel. Maier said that Vitter "was not a freak. He was not into anything unusual or kinky or weird," and that he favored one prostitute in particular, Wendy Cortez, the name of the prostitute that Vitter had been accused, during his 2004 campaign, of having had a lengthy affair with. Vitter denied that allegation during the campaign. On July 12, Cortez told The Times-Picayune that Vitter was "a regular customer" during his time in the state legislature, but that they "did not have a romantic relationship." So, here we go again. So, what else is new. So, is it news at all? Read more about the life and times of this lastest publically humiliated Congressional hipocrite at: www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Vitter

Now, here's a poem you can use for a headline:

With Background Music & A Dance Sequence

War was never a good listener. But it is a master of disguises:

-Gunfire that sounds like a beating heart.

-A cave that requires an access code to enter.

-Modern conveniences found in a sleazy bar.

-Loose change that adds-up to a fifty-cent deficient.

-A packing slip that smells like sulfuric acid.

-One Peeping Tom at a glory hole convention.

-The zipper in the fly of Global Warming.

-Any of the spaces between the rings of Saturn.

-Methadone boarding a plane at LaGuardia.

-The pastoral setting in a kung-fu movie.

-House lights that remain on during the day.

-A military strategy suffering from jock-itch.
