Vitter Denies Prostitution Accusations
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Filed at 6:35 p.m. ET

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Sen. David Vitter on Monday denied charges that he had relationships with New Orleans prostitutes and said he will return to work in Washington this week.

In a news conference in suburban Metairie with his wife, Wendy, by his side, Vitter offered an apology to ''all those I have disappointed and let down with the actions of my past.''

3. So, Vitter wants it both ways (no pun intended)
He DIDN'T have sex with prostitutes, but last week he explained his wife had forgiven him for his prositutial transgressions.

:rofl:

(Yeah..there's no such word as "prostitutial", but I kinda like it! :silly: )

5. Vitter re-emerges and again asks for forgiveness
U.S. Sen. David Vitter again asked for forgiveness for a "serious sin in my past,'' but provided few details in a brief statement to reporters Monday afternoon from a Metairie hotel ... Vitter provided few details of the actions for which he was apologizing, saying such statements would not serve his family or his office. But he did say some of the reported stories regarding incidents in New Orleans were not true. He said he and his wife had confronted his sins "in confession and marriage counseling and have put it behind us" ...

http://blog.nola.com/times-picayune/2007/07/vitter_reem...

I is truly sorry. Fer what? I'd rather not say ...

10. He's lying with the truth
"But he did say some of the reported stories regarding incidents in New Orleans were not true."

I have no doubt some of the stories have non-factual elements. But that doesn't mean the claims are entirely false either.

37. You ought to read the letters he sends out to people in his district
He has learned the art of word smithing from Rove and company.
His hypocricy and his wife's hypocricy and fakeness have no bounds. His wife publically was critical of Hillary when she stayed with Bill.
Well Karma does happen in this lifetime sometimnes. I hope the media stays outside her house forever. These hypocrits deserve it. Family values, abstinance lol

17. Use the proper term for "prositutial transgressions" . It's called Whoremongering.

4. He is all about moral values and personal responsibility
Like cheating on your wife with a prostitute and admitting it only after you have been caught.

7. Like Republican president, like Republican senator bootlicker.
After almost 7 years of blatant, in-your-face lying by the Rethugs, is anyone surprised? Lying is their only defense.

38. He voted 99 percent with Bush , usually hurting Louisiana's
ordianary citizen with the vote. But Mr. purity does not care about the poor, he just lies to them more about his values and how he votes.

11. Is he saying "he did not have sexual relations with that woman?"
Edited on Mon Jul-16-07 07:43 PM by goclark
If not, what did he do?

Why did he have to go into hiding with his family and ask for forgiveness?

Are his diapers on fire?

12. Reminds me of one of my uncle's advice
Never admit it. Even if she catches you naked in bed with a prostitute, deny it. As long as you give her a reason to doubt, however unreasonable it may be, she'll take it.

Guess the goddamn lecher was right.

13. He's had time to think about whether there's more evidence.
There'll never be enough to charge him, and by GOP standards, that makes him innocent.

14. Thumbs up . . . my butt!



We've seen Tucker's defense of this stupid ass clown. We're cable-less and hoping that somebody will report in when "Hope my penis doesn't come untucked" Ann Coulter speaks up!

39. Tucker the F--------er's such an propagandist for the fascists. He
said there were no poor here in the USA the other day. This guy is a neo-con wet dream. I can't watch this wimpy, whiney, little snoot for more than 5 minutes without hearing a lie.

19. "Vitter did not take questions at his press conference"
"... but Wendy Vitter stepped to the podium and called her husband 'my best friend'".

(from http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/us/AP-Vitter-Senate.htm... ).

What a pantsload!

Since when can you have "a press conference" and not take any questions?

Why didn't the Times call what happened this afternoon what it was? A "photo-op" staged by expensive partisan PR flacks,

24. Was that his wife standing next to him. . . . .
. . . . .wearing the leopard-print dress? I didn't see the press conference, I only saw clips that were on Hardball, but the first thing I thought was, "Uh, oh, Wendy, that was NOT the dress to wear. Not, not, not."

Tansy Gold, who has no fashion sense herself but would never have chosen a leopard-print dress to wear when her husband was confessing on camera to having visited hookers. . . . . . . . . . .

29. So, umm.... help me out here.
1) He states didn't do it.
2) He states has "sinned" and has attended marriage counseling and has worked past it.

I think these are mutually exclusive. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Otherwise, what's the "sin" we're missing? He still belongs to the Republican party, so it's not that.

34. "Accusations" (?!) - aren't there phone records?
so he isn't denying accusations, he is denying facts and refusing to even put out his own version of why he would call. AP sure can water down a headline.
