DC Madam Customer David Vitter Is Outraged By The ACORN Prostitution Scandal
http://thinkprogress.org/2009/09/16/vitter-acorn /

Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) is the self-proclaimed most outspoken critic of ACORN. Following the release of incriminating videos showing ACORN workers giving advice to undercover conservative activists inquiring about how to start a brothel and not get caught, Vitter and other Republicans called for investigations and audits of the organization. On Monday, he put out a press release bragging about all his anti-ACORN work over the years and commending the federal government for cutting off support:

After months of beating the drum and continued news reports of criminal investigations, the president and his administration are finally starting to distance themselves from ACORN. The Census dropping ACORN as a partner is a good, common sense move. Now we must go one step further and support my simple and direct amendment, which declares that no federal funds should go ACORN.

Yet despite all his anti-ACORN activism, Vitter missed the vote that cut off federal funding for the group. A spokesman said that there was a scheduling error that caused the senator to miss his flight back to Washington in time for the roll call, but he still called colleagues and urged them to support the amendment.

Vitters outrage over the latest ACORN scandal seems extraordinarily hypocritical, in light of what he went through in 2007:

A woman accused of running a Washington prostitution ring placed five phone calls to David Vitter while he was a House member, including two while roll call votes were under way, according to telephone and congressional records.

Vitter, a Louisiana Republican now in the Senate, acknowledged Monday that his number was on the womans call list and apologized for a very serious sin.

Vitter, of course, kept his federal funding, and was re-elected in 2008.

8. Republicans: Taking Hypocrisy to Previously Unimagined Levels
I'd like to think that even the sheeple back home are saying "Whaaaa???" in that cute Cajun accent.
