Tough choice for Vitter in escort case


By MATT APUZZO, Associated Press Writer
Fri Nov 16, 6:47 PM ET



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.

That's why Sibley expects Vitter to fight the subpoena.

4. STOP IT, I have a hot drink in my hand.
LOL.

Funny how these family values fundies seem to think that rules apply to others, but not to them. I think that, along with a lack of rational thinking is their primary personality facet.

3. Isn't it ironic...
That this case comes up after there's a new Repug Gov. of Louisiana?

Just an observation...

5. How can you fight a subpoena? Can he claim "executive privelege"?

6. I am sure President Clinton would have wanted the republican witch hunt
to stay out of the public eye. But the republicans spent 80 million dollars to make sure it wasn't...Why wasn't that between God and his family.
