Woman accused of running high-end ring files suit while facing criminal charges Associated Press
November 17, 2007 WASHINGTON - When questioned about his links to a Washington escort service, Sen. David Vitter has chosen his words carefully. He apologized for a "very serious sin in my past" but said the details were best left between God and his family.
Now, the woman accused of running a high-end prostitution ring wants the Louisiana Republican to dish the salacious details in court.
A lawyer for indicted escort Deborah Palfrey has subpoenaed the first-term senator to testify at a hearing this month. Attorney Montgomery Blair Sibley said he'll ask Vitter pointedly, "As a client, did you engage in illegal sex acts?"
In a city where the preferred method of apologizing is a prepared statement and where follow-up questions are often ducked, Sibley is promising to force some answers. Unlike Vitter's news conference on the matter, at which he took no questions, the witness box can be an unscripted, on-the-record, under-oath political nightmare.

Mafia casino and whore house that supplied 'favors' for 'favors'..did the casino pay off more than bet.. was the casino a a front for bribes ..
this was really big.. the limo service contracted by the DEPT OF HOMELAND SECURITY for the usual no bid shit load more than anyone could imagine... A WHOPPING $21,100,000 for the purpose of hauling Republicans to hookers.!!!!!! for the purpose of bribery and maybe to be photographed for the purpose of extortion.?? the Liberal dominated media seems to have slept thru this one
this sounds like where they got the photos to extort the Repeblican maggots to vote in lock step for Chaney's wet brain alcoholic puppet pResident's Machiavellian NeoCon schemes to destroy the constitution and create a Fascist plutocrat cleptocracy
9. Well, this is a FEDERAL case, so that governor cannot help much.
And I don't think he'd touch this shit with a ten foot pole.
A federal judge scheduled the Nov. 28 hearing to consider allowing Palfrey to continue fighting a civil lawsuit while her criminal case is continuing. The civil case underscores her defense. Palfrey says she provided a fantasy service, not a sexual one. Any women who had sex for money were what Sibley calls "rogue escorts" who violated their employment contract.
Palfrey is suing one of the escorts for breach of contract. If Vitter testifies he had sex with one of the escorts for money, Sibley argues, the senator will bolster their case that the escort contract was violated and the civil case should go forward.
