Senator David Vitter Caught With His Hand In The Panty Jar

David Vitter, Busted

Once again illustrating the “Do as I say, not as I do” nature of medieval fundy morality, it seems David Vitter, Republican Senator from Louisiana has gotten caught with his hand in the panty jar.

Touting his misogyny in a section of his official website entitled “Life & Values“, he spends a bit of web estate telling us how he knows what’s best for us regarding our options in the case of an unwanted pregnancy:

(The hypocrisy glares below the fold.)

As a strong believer in the dignity and sanctity of all human life, I stand with many other Louisianans in defense of those who cannot defend themselves. Together, we work daily to turn the tide toward respecting, protecting, and dignifying innocent human life.

To this end, I have supported all pro-life measures before Congress, including:

    • Supporting an immediate ban on partial birth abortions.
    • Expanding tax credits and other support for adoption.
    • Authoring legislation that would absolutely prohibit taxpayer funding to private providers of abortion services.
    • Supporting a full ban on human cloning.
    • Authoring legislation to codify safety measures designed to protect the health of women who use RU-486, responding to the misguided and politicized approval of the drug.
    • Participating in National Adoption Awareness Month.
    • Supporting legislation requiring that pregnant mothers be provided information on their unborn child’s ability to experience pain 20 weeks after fertilization.
    • Supporting legislation prohibiting the transportation of a minor across state lines for the purpose of obtaining an abortion.

However, in his defense, he does have a section of his website devoted to focusing “on the views and needs of women and families”.

With a few links thrown in haphazardly at the end, the entire breadth of his concern for what women think seems to consist of the following:

My Women’s Leadership Forum is designed to help me focus on the views and needs of women and families.

Every year we meet as a group to discuss issues important to women and families across Louisiana. These meetings have produced an ongoing dialogue about the initiaives you want me to address in the Senate as well as specific work we can pursue together in the community.

Your input on education, health care, and other key issues for our families has been crucial to my work in the Senate, and I want to continue our dialogue – it’s crucial for me to hear your view on issues. I have designated two staff members to serve as my liasions to our Women’s Leadership Forum. Nicole Hebert and Polly Koury in my Lafayette office can be reached at (337) 262-6898 or feel free to email me. I look forward to hearing from you.

Wow. Once every year? Holy crap, that’s some kind of dedication to our views and needs, there Senator. Thanks.

I guess Senator Vitter needed to get some first hand research done when he visited Deborah Jeane Palfrey, the so called “DC Madam”. Via CNN:

Sen. David Vitter, R-Louisiana, 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.

But of course, that was all in the past, and he’s apologized to God, and to his wife, and now he’s sorry.

“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.”

Somehow I have trouble taking the apology at face value. If you were so repentant Senator, why did you not disclose this information before now? You might have mentioned it while you were in the House of Representatives from 1999 to 2004. You could have come forward in the beginning of the investigation of Ms. Palfrey. Surely this information may have been of interest to the righteous and morally superior constituents to whom you pander. Or did it just slip your mind over the course of the five elections you’ve won over the past eight years?

The way this has played out Senator, it sure seems like you’re only sorry you got caught. It makes you look like a hypocrite for your attempts to legislate the religious beliefs of the extreme right wing Christian Fundamentalists.

Just so y’know.

    You know I can be flippant at times, and people may not take me seriously. But when it comes to hypocrites I am right into the fight. This man should have his bollocks roasted and put on a skewer. Have said it before, but if you want a musical version of these politics check out Phil Collins and “Jesus he knows me”.

    Whoops

    In Wednesday’s press conference, Flynt said he has also located five prostitutes in Louisiana who also allege that they have had sexual contact with Vitter.

    “You can’t have a guy with four, five mistresses and at the same time attacking any similarity of gay rights and speaking about the sanctity of marriage, and abstinence programs, and voting the conservative line all the way down,” Flynt said.

    “I don’t want a man like that legislating for me, especially in the areas of morality,” he added.

    Vitter heavily campaigned on social values in his 2004 Senate race and was one of the top backers of a failed constitutional amendment that would have banned same-sex marriage.

    The Louisiana Republican issued a statement Monday night calling his contact with Palfrey a “very serious sin,” but has since not been seen in public.

    Every time I hear a story like this, Senator Peckerwood, oopps, PACKwood, Senator Feeley -oops FOLEY, and the Rev. Faggard – OOPS I mean HAGGARD, it makes me wonder what it is about Republicans (the party of Family Values, and Christian Living) that makes them SOOOO hypocritical?Is it that the denial of urges tends to make those urges so much stronger that they cannot be repressed, or do they feel that since they are the Party Of God, they are somehow above the law? (See Dick Cheney’s, and the Glorified Houseplant who would be Caesar’s latest antics for reference).

    Sergeant Z,

    I would venture to guess that you have hit both nails most directly on their heads.

    Kisses

    Having checked out the back catalogue I now realise that “Jesus He Knows Me” was recorded by Genesis. Mr Collins was obviously involved, so I wasn’t all wrong. Sorry for any confusion caused.

  7. Martyne says:

    Please don’t say glorified houseplant again in the near future. I have wet so many knickers over the phrase that I have very few clean ones left.

  8. JanieBelle says:

    Forgiven Martyne. I’m good like that.

    I’m glad you get such a chuckle out of “His Holiness The Glorified Houseplant Who Would Be Caesar”.

    Now go change your knickers again.

    Kisses

    🙂

    That’s it. I am down to the last clean pair. Don’t even think of going there again! Please. Pretty please.
