Tucker-Vitter-Presser Moments ago, Republican Senator David Vitter held his first press conference since his admission that he cheated on his wife by using an escort service in Washington D.C.. Vitter claims he is the victim of his political enemies and just like all good, hypocritical Republicans these days, he's not going to the right thing. Instead of resigning the disgraced Senator, who called for President Clinton to resign in 1998 because of an extramarital affair, is going to fly back to Washington D.C. and act like nothing happened. He also disputed claims that he visited a brothel in New Orleans, saying the reports were "not true."

His wife, Wendy Vitter also spoke, saying she has forgiven him and that their marriage fine. I don't have a problem with that, but as I wrote in a past post, Senator Vitter doesn't work for his wife, he works for the people of Louisiana and all Americans in the U.S. Senate. The D.C. Madam, Debra Jean Palfry has called for Vitter to be prosecuted and I think at the very least Senate leadership needs to take a look at Vitter's actions.
