    GOP Co-Author of Marriage Protection Amendment says he used Dial-a-Whore

    Calling CBTNY: Culture of Hypocrisy alert!

    This genius not only called for Clinton's resignation over an extramarital affair back in the day, but is the CO-AUTHOR of the Marriage Protection Amendment!!!

    I wonder how using a dial-a-whore protects the sanctity of marriage?

    Senator's number on escort service list

    Louisiana Sen. Vitter Apologizes After Number Appears on Escort Service Phone List

    DOUGLASS K. DANIEL
    AP News

    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."


    Vitter's spokesman, Joel Digrado, confirmed the statement in an e-mail sent to The Associated Press.

    "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."

    The statement containing Vitter's apology said his telephone number was on old phone records of Pamela Martin and Associates before he ran for the Senate.

    Deborah Jeane Palfrey was accused in federal court of racketeering by running a prostitution ring that netted more than $2 million over 13 years, beginning in 1993. She contends, however, that her escort service, Pamela Martin and Associates, was a legitimate business.

    Vitter, 46, a Republican in his first Senate term, was elected to the Senate in 2004. He represented Louisiana's 1st Congressional District in the House from 1999 to 2004.

    Vitter and his wife, Wendy, live in Metairie, La., with their four children.

    Palfrey's attorney, Montgomery Blair Sibley, told the AP, "I'm stunned that someone would be apologizing for this." He said Palfrey had posted the phone numbers of her escort service's clients online Monday, but he did not know whether Vitter's number was among them.

    Vitter's statement was sent to the AP's New Orleans bureau Monday evening. As of late Monday night, the AP has been unable to connect to Palfrey's Web site.

    Earlier this year Palfrey, 51, of Vallejo, Calif., asked the Supreme Court to delay the criminal case against her _ a request the court denied in May. Her attorney had argued that it was unfair to proceed against Palfrey because her assets remain seized in a civil forfeiture case, meaning she lacks the money to hire an attorney of her choice.

    Randall Tobias, a senior official in the State Department, resigned in April after ABC News confronted him about his use of the escort service. He admitted that he had hired women to come to his Washington condo and give him massages but denied that he had sex with the escorts.

    Palfrey threatened for months to release her client list, which led prosecutors to accuse her of trying to intimidate potential witnesses.

    Contending that her escort service was legal, Palfrey revealed details of its operation on ABC's news magazine "20/20" on May 4. At the time, ABC said it could not link any information provided by Palfrey to members of Congress or White House officials but did find links to prominent business executives, NASA officials and at least five military officers.

    Prosecutors contend that Palfrey knew the 130 women she employed over 13 years were engaged in prostitution. She claims that she operated a "legal, high-end erotic fantasy service" and that the women signed contracts in which they promised not to have sex with clients. The service charged a flat rate of $275 for 90 minutes, she said.

    Palfrey pleaded guilty to pimping charges in 1991 and was sentenced to 18 months in a California prison.

    Here's Vitter on Marriage in 2006, and, for those keeping score, this statement came well after his little dial-a-whore problem, according to the timeline in his statement.

    Vitter's View: Protecting Marriage

    June 9, 2006 -
    This week, the U.S. Senate focused much of its attention on the Marriage Protection Amendment, a constitutional amendment to protect traditional marriage as being between one man and one woman. While more senators voted for it this time than two years ago, we still didnít meet the threshold for a constitutional amendment to pass. But we are making progress.

    Voters in Louisiana and at least 44 other states have shown their support for traditional marriage by voting to protect it. But these laws are being attacked in courts across the country, and activist judges should not be able to suppress the will of the American people. This is why we need a constitutional amendment to protect traditional marriage.

    Marriage is a core institution of societies throughout the world and is a bedrock institution for our own society because it has provided permanence and stability for our very social structure. Studies have shown that the institution of marriage has a positive impact on the lives of both parents and children because, for example, it reduces the risk of poverty and the risk of crime.

    The majority of children whose parents either never marry or get divorced, live through at least one year of poverty. And boys who grow up in fatherless households are two to three times more likely to commit crimes and end up in jail.

    In contrast, marriage benefits both the physical and mental health of children, fosters better academic performance from children and strengthens the relationship between parents and children. Thatís why itís very important to further the marriage debate on the floor of the U.S. Senate.

    Some folks in Washington may not get that, but certainly a lot of folks in the real world, certainly in Louisiana, get it. Two years ago Louisiana passed a state marriage constitutional amendment with 78 percent of the vote. Folks in Louisiana simply want their wishes honored, and they donít want the amendment by undone activist judges in federal courts or courts in other states, which is why this federal constitutional amendment is necessary. The only way to ensure that activist judges do not overrule the will of the American people is to pass an amendment to the Constitution.

    As an original co-author of the federal marriage amendment, I voted for it. I think itís a very important debate for us to further. I think weíre making progress and winning a lot of hearts and minds and I will keep working to win approval of this constitutional amendment.

    I am interested in hearing your thoughts on how the U.S. Senate can help protect traditional marriage. Please contact me with your ideas at any of my state offices or in my Washington office by mail at U.S. Senator David Vitter, U.S. Senate, 516 Hart Senate Office Building, Washington, D.C. 20510, or by phone at 202-224-4623.

    By the way, Vitter has bigger problems than losing elections because of this.

    Here's what his wife told the New Orleans paper in 2000, answering a question about Hillary Clinton sticking by Bill Clinton:

    _________

    "Asked by an interviewer in 2000 whether she could forgive her husband if she learned he'd had an extramarital affair, as Hillary Clinton and Bob Livingston's wife had done, Wendy Vitter told the Times-Picayune: [B]"I'm a lot more like Lorena Bobbitt than Hillary. If he does something like that, I'm walking away with one thing, and it's not alimony, trust me."[/B]

    This story gets better all the time:

    Vitter was the southern regional chair of Rudy Giuliani's campaign. Quite an operation Rudy had going in the South, with an indicted crack dealer running his South Carolina operation, too (not to mention the guy he recommended to run U.S. Homeland Security, Bernie Kerik, in the clink).

    Rudy sure can pick 'em!

    [quote]Texas State Lawmaker Opposing Deadly Force Bill Shoots Would-Be Thief

    Monday, July 09, 2007
    E-MAIL STORY
    PRINTER FRIENDLY VERSION

    HOUSTON — A state lawmaker who opposed a bill giving Texans stronger right to defend themselves with deadly force pulled a gun and shot a man he says was trying to steal copper wiring from a construction site, police said Monday.

    Rep. Borris Miles told police he was fixing a leak on the second floor of the Houston house he's building Sunday night when he heard a noise downstairs and saw two men trying to steal the copper. After Miles confronted the pair, one of the men threw a pocketknife at him, Houston Police spokesman Victor Senties.

    Miles, a former law enforcement officer, shot the man in the left leg, police said. The wounded suspect was being treated at a Houston hospital. Police were trying to identify the other suspect.

    Charges of aggravated robbery are pending against the wounded suspect, Senties said.

    Police said Miles, who is in his freshman term, is licensed to carry a concealed weapon. No charges have been filed against Miles, Senties said.

    Miles, [b]a Democrat[/b], voted against a bill that gives Texans stronger legal right to defend themselves with deadly force in their homes, vehicles, and workplaces. The so-called "castle doctrine," passed by the Legislature this year, states that a person has no duty to retreat from an intruder before using deadly force. The law goes into effect Sept. 1.[/quote]

    Well I'll be god damned. I reckon that this hypocrisy cancels out the other hypocrisy. Or visa versa. Like the old saying goes [B]"One mans hypocrisy is another mans reason why his hypocrisy isn't as bad as the first guys hypocrisy because the hypocrisy isn't as hypocritical as the hypocritical hypocrisy of the second guy."[/B]

    Or at least that what I read in this fortune cookie...

    Really? Because to me hypocrisy is hypocrisy, plain and simple. Why would a guy who sits and pontificates in the senate about the sanctity of marriage be getting his d*** wet on the side? Probably because even he doesn't believe the bullsh*t he is trying to sell...he is just an empty suit that spouts rhetoric to convince a voting block he stands for what they believe in when in reality all he cares about is himself, his pockets and his re-election campaign.

    There is a huge difference between being a "Republican" and being a "fanboy"...




    [QUOTE]Fanboy is a term used to describe an individual (usually male, though the feminine version fangirl may be used for females) who is utterly devoted to a single fannish subject, or to a single point of view within that subject, often to the point where it is considered an obsession. Fanboys remain loyal to their particular obsession, disregarding any factors that differ from their point of view. Fanboys are also typically aggressive and hateful towards the opposing brand or competition of their obsession regardless of its merits or achievements.[/QUOTE]

    No, it is identical on both sides. We could cite matching examples of political hypocrisy from the opposite side until the end of time if we were so inclined.

    You have to be completely deluded not to see that.

    There are some politicians who are not hypocrites --your Barry Goldwater, Russ Feingold, Paul Wellstone true believer types) but they are few and far between (and usually have a hard time winning higher office).

    Were that to be true, does that suddenly make the right's hypocrisies OK? You seem to insinuate that it does.

    classic bullsh!t from this forum's number one hypocrite...of course when faced with the fact hussien obama has consistently patronized a racist and separatist preacher, the response??

    [QUOTE=nuu faaola]

    And I figured your slur would be based on something somebody else said, and not what Obama said.

    I'm sure you agree with --and should be held responsible for-- everything you've ever heard from the pulpit in your church/synagogue/mosque.[/QUOTE]


    Vitter's an ass and deserves everything he gets....if you are desperate enough to use whore's and stupid enough as a public figure to use your name when using them you're a complete moron....

    While I agree with what you wrote, I noticed you failed to point out his hypocritical bullsh*t. Since you're always the one pointing out the hypocrisy of the left, why did you suddenly omit that point here? Preaching about the sanctity of marriage while he's soliciting prostitutes is pretty damn hypocritical to me.

    maybe you need some dialogue on what the simple phrase "deserves everything he gets" means....
