WASHINGTON (July 10) -- Louisiana Sen. David Vitter, whose telephone number was disclosed by the so-called "D.C. Madam" accused of running a prostitution ring, says he is sorry for a "serious sin" and that he has already made peace with his wife.




"This was a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible," Vitter said Monday in a printed statement. "Several years ago, I asked for and received forgiveness from God and my wife in confession and marriage counseling. Out of respect for my family, I will keep my discussion of the matter there -- with God and them. But I certainly offer my deep and sincere apologies to all I have disappointed and let down in any way."


Vitter's spokesman, Joel Digrado, confirmed the statement Monday evening in an e-mail to The Associated Press after a statement purported to be from Vitter was received by to the AP bureau in New Orleans.


It said his telephone number was on old phone records of Pamela Martin and Associates before he ran for the Senate.


Deborah Jeane Palfrey is accused by federal prosecutors of racketeering by running a prostitution ring that netted more than $2 million over 13 years, beginning in 1993. She contends that her escort service, Pamela Martin and Associates, was a legitimate business.


A Harvard graduate and Rhodes scholar, the 46-year-old Vitter was elected to his current office in 2004, becoming the first Republican from Louisiana elected to the Senate since Reconstruction. He represented Louisiana's 1st Congressional District in the House from 1999 to 2004.


Vitter and his wife, Wendy, live in Metairie, La., with their four children.


Palfrey's attorney, Montgomery Blair Sibley, told the AP, "I'm stunned that someone would be apologizing for this." He said Palfrey had posted the phone numbers of her escort service's clients online Monday, but that he had not been aware Vitter's number was among them. Vitter's statement was sent to the AP's New Orleans bureau Monday evening.


Palfrey's Web site contains several pages phone records, but no names, dating from August 1994 to August 2006. Palfrey wrote on the Web site that she believed a disk containing the records had been pirated, and said she was posting the records "to thwart any possible distorted version and to ensure the integrity of the information."


Palfrey revealed details of her escort service on ABC's news magazine "20/20" on May 4. At the time, ABC said it could not link any information provided by Palfrey to members of Congress or White House officials but did find links to prominent business executives, NASA officials and at least five military officers.

Yes he is. He's catholic but very conservative on the social issues. For instance he once compared Gay Marriage to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.


Of course that didn't stop him from making a mockery of his own marriage while telling others how to live their's.

Not surprised at all. Vitter is the type of guy to pull this crap. I was in Louisiana when he ran and won his election. He kept running on the same moral principles etc etc. Big gay marriage basher.


I know what caused this. It is the gays wanting to get married that undermined the sanctity of his marriage!!



Also, Vitter is running Guliani's campaign in the south. Family values!!

I think Vitter and others like him spout the moral values BS because many Americans say one thing and do another. I am sure some of those people that insist that kids wait until marriage to engage in sex have probably had 50+ partners and are still getting it on outside of marriage. Some of the people that do the gay bashing maybe have doubts about their own sexuality or are gay themselves and want to hide it by bashing gay people. Not saying all of them are hypocrites, but perhaps their wrath and pontification are evidence of their own insecurities. And Vitter and others like him take advantage of those insecurities.


What a shameless bastard.

A few years back Mrs. Vitter went out of her way to say how she couldn't understand how Hilary could stay with Bill, and that she was not one of those wives and then went on to say "I'm more Lorena Bobbit"
