Vitter's Favorite NOLA Prostitute, Wendy 'Cortez' confirms story
http://blog.nola.com/updates/2007/07/former_prostitute_...

De-nile is a river in Egypt.



Vitter's tasty NOLA treat, Wendy Cortez.



Days after Senator David Vitter apologized for using an escort service in Washington, D.C., a woman who once worked as a prostitute in Louisiana said he was a regular client of hers several years ago while he was a state legislator. The woman worked under the name Wendy Cortez. Her birth name is Wendy Yow, according to her ex-husband, who asked not to be named but said he has seen her birth certificate.

Yow, contacted through relatives, called The Times-Picayune Wednesday night and said Vitter was a regular customer of hers, but said the two did not have a personal romantic relationship. She claimed to have severed ties with him after she found out he was married. Yow said it was a part of her life she hoped to put behind her.

<snip>

Her former boyfriend Tait Cortez, contacted by The Times-Picayune, said he has seen several photos of Wendy Cortez and Vitter together.

<snip>

While unpacking boxes following the couple's move to Alabama in 1998, Tait Cortez said he found photos of a smiling Wendy at a formal affair, wearing an evening gown, alongside a man he described as a ''city slicker'' wearing a suit. In another photo, that same dark-haired man appeared with Wendy at a waterfront party, he said. The man was wearing shorts and a t-shirt next to Wendy in a bikini, Cortez said. ''She had his hand on his crotch,'' Cortez said. ''They were smiling.''

<snip>

''She said it was a client of hers,'' Cortez said. ''She said it was David Vitter, a politician.''

11. I think Vitter has bad taste. The woman is ugly, in my view.

13. Moderately dishonest headline
Since "the story" most DUers are expecting is the "diaper fetish" story, somebody reading the headline may think that that element of the tale has been transformed from baseless rumor to confirmed fact. It has NOT. There is nothing in the story about a diaper fetish, period.

14. the "story" is that Vitter has lied repeatedly on the record
denying that he's a client of any NOLA hooker, but one he appears to have had a relationship with has come forward to refute hime. I've posted numerouse diaper-themed threads on Vitter, this one has nothing to do with his rumored fetish, does not contain "diaper" or "pampers" in the headline, and am not responsible for disappointing anyone's expectations of breaking diaper-news-- headline not misleading or dishonest in the least.

22. "confirms story" meant to me, confirms professional relationship, not
diapers, as you suggest. The issue with Cortez has been around for a long time. Vitter directly denied it. Now the Times Picayune confirms it. Quite something.

This blogger, Suspect devices: the Blog asked what a lot of people
in Louisiana want to know since the charges about Cortez have been around forever:

"My question: now that we know he was bumping uglies up in DC, does that mean we can get the truth about Wendy Cortez?"

So the headline is clear to me and people who have been following this, "what's the truth about Wendy Cortez," the same woman Vitter said he'd had nothing to do with.

16. Hmm what do you think such photos would be worth? A lot, I'd bet.
She'd better make with the pics soon or else risk suffering an unfortunate accident before they surface.

17. She's being a bit canny, confirming the basics and hinting at more. I wonder how Vitter is going to
handle this.

And there are pictures. This is a US Senator, after all and if he's willing to pose for the pics, oh well. :shrug: MKJ

19. something doesn't make sense. A hooker leaves a client because she found out he is
married?
