Senator David Vitter drove home again today the fact that he has no shame. Today he asked the Federal Election Commission whether he can use campaign funds to pay $137,177 in legal fees. He incurred the fees because of his involvement with a high-priced Washington hooker.
The Republican hero of the religious right acknowledged in July 2007 that his phone number appeared on the client list of the woman dubbed “the D.C. Madam.” Deborah Jeane Palfrey was convicted in federal court in April of money laundering, mail fraud and conspiracy.
This comes on top (pardon the expression) of the fact that Vitter joined with his buddy toe-tapping Larry Craig, whose number is probably on bathroom walls in every red state airport, to co-sponsor the marriage defense act.
