Matt Foreman: What’s the Difference Between Larry Craig and David Vitter?

August 29, 2007 at 3:28 pm Leave a comment

Matt Foreman, Executive Director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force has this to say about the unequal ways in which Senate Republicans responded to the Larry Craig and David Vitter scandals. Vitter you will remember confessed to purchasing the services of prostitutes after he become aware that the D.C. Madame was going to make names on her call list public.

Let’s see — one Republican senator is involved in soliciting sex from a man and the Republican leadership calls for a Senate investigation and yanks the rug from underneath him. Another Republican senator admits to soliciting the services of a female prostitute and there’s not only no investigation but the senator is greeted with a standing ovation by his Republican peers. What explains the starkly different responses? I’d say rank and homophobic hypocrisy.
