Hypocrite of the Week

"I think Livingston's stepping down makes a very powerful argument that Clinton should resign as well and move beyond this mess."

-- Then-Rep. David Vitter (R-LA), quoted by Think Progress, after replacing Rep. Bob Livingston (R-LA) who "abruptly resigned after disclosures of numerous affairs" in 1998.

Vitter Linked to Another Brothel
Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) "visited a Canal Street brothel several times beginning in the mid-1990s, paying $300 per hour for services at the bordello after he met the madam at a fishing rodeo that included prostitutes and other politicians, according to Jeanette Maier, the 'Canal Street Madam' whose operation was shut down by a federal investigators in 2001," the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

"After they met, Maier said Vitter became a customer at the Mid-City brothel. He made several visits, she said, but had stopped coming before federal agents raided the brothel."

Amazing part is he writes an OP ED piece demanding Clinton's impeachment at the same time he was visiting hookers. Just be quiet and not be a hypocrite.
