[Update: In today's T-P Jeanette Maier, "The Canal Madam", defended Senator Vitter saying he "was not a freak. He was not into anything unusual or kinky or weird". This contradicts what my source has told me, based on other Canal Brothel patrons' observations.
From WDSU (if you see local anchorman Norman Robinson reporting on this story, you may want to save the tape for later viewings):
Jeanette Maier, known as the Canal Street Madam, claimed Tuesday that Sen. David Vitter visited her Mid-City operation beginning in the mid-1990s.
According to Maier, Vitter would pay $300 an hour for services. She would not disclose how many times he came to the Canal Street home, only saying that it was more than once.
"He seems to be one of the nicest men and most honorable men I've ever met," Maier said.
She also said that although some of his visits were at the Canal Street location, others were during fishing trips and other activities with fellow politicians.
"There was more to the business than sex," she said. "There are so many demands made on these people."
First off, this is news to me. I suspected Vitty might have frequented the Canal Street Madam, but never had any confirmation from my sources until tonight. According to the story in the T-P, the Madam said Vitter liked a girl named "Wendy". (If this Wendy is the infamous Wendy Cortez, then I have been mistakenly assuming Cortez worked only in the French Quarter, apart from the Canal Street enterprise. I'm sure this will all get sorted out in the fullness of time.[Update: More about Cortez here.])
Tonight I got confirmation from a solid inside source who has no ideological ax to grind. The source said Vitter was a client at Canal Street, and provided some additional details that shed light on Maier's comment that there was "more to the business than sex". [Update: Based on her comments about Vitter not having "unusual predilections", I would interpret this comment to mean something like companionship and social interaction rather than fetishes... etc.] These details are not for the faint of heart, either.
We're talking about, among other things, Diaper Fetishism. That's right folks, according to a trusted inside source, Vitter was well known among other Canal Street Brothel patrons to like diapers as well as other bizarre "fetishes". I don't have much more info than that from my source, except that some of the other patrons at the brothel included a well known business-minded New Orleans Republican and a well known Democratic ex-governor. There are many other well known patrons who never held public office, too. You've probably heard various names floated about.
Now, don't get me wrong. I love that New Orleans has more than its share of sex fetishists and preeverts who can't come missionary. This ain't a vanilla town, kids.
But the thought of Vitter prancing around in a dipey is a bit jarring, especially since I'm changing those nasty things every day. I can't help picturing the scene and wondering about the details. I assume they were adult sized. But were they cloth or disposable? Did they get dirty? Was there a diaper genie available? What about a tube of Boudreaux's? Were they customized in Vitter Blue? How old were Vitter's children when this was going on? Did he change diapers in the morning and then wear them at night?
--- Update: Great Caesar's Ghost!!TPM found Vitter's 2004 Senate ads, and in one of them the freakazoid gets asked to change his son's diapers! You may want to watch this with a vomit bag.
Vitter: "Bottom line: for the sake of our children, there are a lot of things I'm gonna change."
Wendy Vitter: "Great, David. You can start by changing Jack."
--- Don't blame me! I told you that more salacious information about Vitter was going to come out, and you can be sure that this isn't the last of it. The Senator should resign rather than prolong this beating. Years ago, Vitter knew the risks of his past indiscretions, and what they might do to his career and family (and state), yet he (and his wife) decided to press on and run for higher office and hope none of these things would ever surface.
Interestingly, the Canal Street Madam's lawyer, Provino "Vinny" Mosca, seemed to contradict Maier. He said he had
"absolutely no recollection of David Vitter's name ever appearing on any document, book or list, or having any association" with Maier. ... "David Vitter's name was never picked up on any government wiretap nor is it listed in any transcript or court document."
Did Vitter perhaps use a different name when he did his business? I guess we'll find out. ===
One very welcome political sidenote to all this is that Vitter's troubles might affect State Treasurer John Kennedy's future political plans. If Kennedy thinks Vitter is vulnerable or may resign, he might decide NOT to switch parties and run against Mary Landrieu (as many have speculated). He might decide that Vitter's seat is now the one he wants. (Of course, if Vitty resigns any time soon, I think Governor Blanco would select his replacement, and Kennedy's probably not on her short list.) ---
This vitty cent drama has played out for me and when you write Congress in the mass amounts that I do it really doesn't help your cause if you can't stand behind your Delegates or have them stand behind you in order to have legislation passed.....
I find the mere fact that Larry Flynt who is behind this all (and possibly Karl Rove) to be repulsive.....You would think that Flynt would be simply satisfied with the fact that he outlived Jerry Falwell.....But he obviously is not....I once consided him to have a shred of decency but with the entire state of Louisiana suffering from the effects of Katrina and Rita (I am a Hurricane Rita victim) and he chose to use a million dollars to upstage politicians rather than donate that million dollars makes me take back every ounce of romantic "idealism" that I had concerning his "shred" of decency....
I think he needs to come up before a Congressional committee and I think I'll mass mail Congress asking them to do so...I see this as being in "Contempt of Congress" which is indeed a crime.....He might have won a Supreme Court case but this is entirely a different thing.....
Plus I get full of anxiety when I don't have any projects in the works to engage Congress.....This time I plan to push about 600 plus letters through the U.S. postal mail in 24 hours making my requests known.....The worse Congress can say to me is "no" and trust me, I don't get that very often from them..... It's not that I'm bragging but I know what works in getting their attention and although it takes a lot of time, money and effort, it has proven time and time again to be very effective for me.....
It does not specifically mention the US Senate, but the State Constitution provides for the "first assistant" to assume the position (pun definitely intended). Since there isn't one for US Senate, I believe that would allow Blanco to name someone.
However, if the remaining term is more than one year an election must be held on the next regularly scheduled statewide election, or a special election. Should Vitter resign before the Sept. 3 qualification date, it seems an election would likely be held in November.
Yes, yesterday's Baton Rouge Advocate had an interesting article about the buzz of Vitter's resigning. You can search www.2theadvocate.com to look for it. It said that Republicans in the state had circled the wagons around Vitter, BUT were preparing in case he resigned. Said they had approached both Blanco and Dave Treen. Blanco is amenable to appointing Treen, and Treen has said yes to serving until a special election is called. I find it a little ironic that the Treen connection is surfacing again, huh? I also know some groups who will "dog" Vitter's town hall meetings and other venues, with diaper posters. It is called Humiliation for Hypocrites. TPM reported that Vitter will return to work Monday, and I can't believe the arrogance of the man. He will hide behind his version of God once again. It seems all you have to do is mention God, and the wingers flock to your defense. It doesn't matter that actions don't match the god-words, just that he says them. Phooey.
PS...To Sharon: I just know Larry Flynt is shaking in his boots about your pathetic threat. He's met and overcome much more trouble than you could even dream about. Oh, and by the way Sharon...Flynt has opened 20-30 more cases on politicians, 99% of them being Republicans. Buy more envelopes.
A little advice for Senator Vitter and yes I did fax these to Vitter and DeMint.....All them single Black women out there Senator Vitter and you feel the need to get with a prostitute!!!

Ya'll check C-Span next week as when Senator Vitter does get a taste of a Sistah he will be walking on the floor of the Senate with a damn "gangsta lean" or his "pimp walk" and he will throw everybody the sign and proclaim that "pimpin' ain't easy...but I had to learn the hard way"......

Try it Senator Vitter....Mastering the art of the "Down Low" will prove to you to be very effective Senator.....You need new "game" Senator Vitter....Your game is "lame" Senator Vitter..... If you want a lil "sum sum" erry now outside of "wifey" and then you need to kick new game!!!!
Like my exboyfriend used to tell me while caught up in the "moment" (he was black)..."If you want me to be your *hoe....I'll be your *hoe and a good one at that....." And I can show you the pictures of him buying me groceries in Walmart....Yeah I took pictures of it......It's all about your technique Senator Vitter and I'm a Democrat at that......
Anonymous you'd be surprised at who takes me seriously.....I have written Nagin and Junior Rodgriguez.....I even have a posted comment to my blog from the VP of Human Resources for the Company that hired Michael "Brownie" Brown and she left me her name, e-mail address and phone number....
And why do you have to approach me anonymously???? I don't do things in secret.....Only cowards do!!!! And the same things that I post here I send to Congress with all the profanity in them--pure and unadulterated!!!! I don't mince words....Not even to Congress or Larry Flynt who might be looking at yet another stint in the slammer.... And if I had done something illegal Congress has two "sergeant at arms" one in both houses who have arrest powers with even the power to arrest the President of the United States.....So my guess is that you could possibly be a member of Congress.....I got this feeling that I am likely correct in my assumptions.....
And for your information I already have a project in the works after I write Larry Flynt....I do plan to do yet another mass mailing of Congress and in the course of addressing other issues I plan to address this issues of Larry Flynt so see you at the Louisiana Democratic Party's Honoring of Louisiana Black Mayors at the Lafayette Hilton...I'll be there this Saturday......
Anonymous you are the very thing that is wrong with this country in that you put politics over principles.....
You give credence to Larry Flynt's vendettas over the fact that I do engage Congress and I AM A UNITED STATES ARMY VETERAN WITH EIGHT YEARS OF ACTIVE DUTY MILITARY SERVICE.....
We no longer have a democracy in this country we have a "free for all"....And I am a Democrat I just don't vote straight party ticket....So shove that up your diaper darling!!!! I am proud to have served to ensure your Constitutional right to criticise me......
