David Vitter Should Resign

Making use of a prostitution ring isn’t a private matter, and Vitter should not be sitting in the United States Senate while the “D.C. Madam” is facing up to 55 years in prison for selling what he was apparently interested in buying.

Exactly. You don’t get to to promote yourself as a “family values” politician and then when caught patronizing prostitutes say “Oops. Sorry.”

The mainstream media is missing the boat on this issue. Republican Senator David Vitter paid cash for the services of hookers while married and while pushing a constitutional amendment that would have banned marriage for same-sex couples. He regularly spouted rhetoric about protecting the sanctity of marriage while cheating on his wife. Now the D.C. Madam is facing serious jail time and Vitter is has returned to the Senate and his refusing to answer questions about his illegal escapades.

If Vitter were a Democrat, the Republicans would be calling for him to be stoned in the public square.
