Vitter: "Those [New Orleans] stories are not true" 

Senator David Vitter:

Unfortunately my admission has encouraged some longtime political enemies, and those hoping to profit from the situation, to spread falsehoods too-- like those New Orleans stories in recent reporting. Those stories are not true.


This statement virtually guarantees that Vitter will be forced to resign sometime this year, probably in weeks, as more disclosures occur and corroborative evidence is unveiled. He can't lie his way out of this. What Vitter's seemingly implying-- that his sinful "actions" occurred only in D.C.-- is so utterly ridiculous based on what I know that I can't believe he's trying to get away with it.

Louisianans won't forgive Vitter if it's shown that the "New Orleans stories" are substantially true.

---
Vitty-cent totally stole Jindal's thunder, and the UNO Republicans are calling for his resignation.

Update: Here's the T-P coverage , and here's Wonkette's excoriation of "Diaperman".

Heh. What happens in DC stays in DC I guess

Time to bring out the blue dress and any other evidence New Orleans has. This bastard needs to go down!

The Repub sharks are circling. Nobody actually likes Vitty so he's in deep doo doo. His survival odds fell to 30-70.

But Wendy claimed they dealt with this years ago. The only story regarding prostitution that broke years ago was that involving Wendy Cortez. And given that we only learned of the DC Madam last Friday, what was the scandal the Vitter family confronted years ago?

I think the Vitters lied and contradicted that lie in the short five minutes both of them were before the camera.

A careful timeline of known facts is in order.

Anon,
I would say that Oyster's previous post is choc-full of "blue dresses" wouldn't you?

For me it is, but not enough to prove it, if anyone has pictures or the ministers themselves need to come forward, simply "sources say" is not enough to get this pampered politician. Where are the 5 hookers? Bring them forward.

Heh "pampered politician". Is that like Super Diaper Baby? You know SDB is a spinoff of Captain Underpants. Which works better as a Vitter alter-ego?

Wendy highly amused me today. Trying to be all tough and uber-estrogen-y, it was just so QUAINT. So.... Late-'90s Hillary Clinton, yet with those thyroided-out eyes tinged with the tint of dementia... Is that a catholic thing, or is it just Wendy?

I'll never understand women who "stand by their men," when their men have made fools of them in the bald-open sunlight. It's got to be a special kind of mercenary masochism that only political wives can stomach.

BTW, if anybody in LA wants a beautiful, short-haired white male cat, neutered, up-to-date on his vaccinations, sweet, gentle disposition, 4 years old, some dipshit abandoned him at my vet's office on Friday, and we have GOT to find this lovely boy a home! He's got the most gorgeous yellow-green eyes, and is affectionate and friendly, though not thrilled to be bunking at the vet's for the moment.

If any of y'all are interested, or know of anyone who is, PLEASE have them holler at me over at my blog --- I don't have the pictures up yet, but I will soon --- this boy doesn't deserve to be "put down" just because another cat doesn't like him. Seriously. Some stupid bitch was going to destroy a wonderful cat just because her OTHER cat didn't like him.

Sorry to be off-topic, Erster, but I figured that your place would be the ideal venue to hit-up Louisiana animal lovers!

You all hate it when you are wrong....Democrats are more reactive than they are proactive.....Let Vitter go and try to level the playing field and then you will succeed in winning hearts and minds and not before that......

I sent Senator Vitter a wooden post card right before their 4th of July recess telling him that I came to the conclusion that he isn't such a bad guy after all but I'd let him know if I had issues with him as I always do......I am straight up bold and to the point and will cuss a member of Congress out in a minute--not a problem with me just ask Boustany!!!!

I forgave the man three weeks ago as I guess God spoke to my heart before the fact....

The trouble with the Democrats is that they are too "double-minded" on key issues and that is costing them key support....They are on a very "slippery slope" with Black-American voters and like Obama has said you have a "quiet riot" that is slowly but surely brewing among African-Americans but yet this country is too blinded to even address it......

Can't you see the storm clouds brewing Congress???? I can!!!! Still in all, I forgive you Senator Vitter.....The Democrats need to get of their penis fixation and onto leveling the playing field and as long as they wander in the wilderness I'll continue Not voting straight party Democratic ticket.....It's as simple as that!!!!

See I vote and I definitely do write Congress.....So see you all at the Democratic thingy thingy this weekend....

Gov Edwards said long ago in Lose-yanna the only way to lose an election by sex is being found with a live boy or a dead girl.

Although diapers may be pushing the envelope. How about Billy Jeff in his briefs? A close second! And BJ Clinton was probably conceived in Shreveport when his whore-mom was servicing roughnecks while her hubby Blythe was soldiering in Italy! Does that count as a POTUS being from the fever-swamp bayous?

By Blogger dave in boca, at 2:09 AM  

For the record, it's Louisiana, not Lose-yanna, and Edwards was referring to his own election; it was not intended as a universal axiom.

I've never seen any records or evidence that Clinton's mother was a whore, and having read many of his biographies, including his tome of an autobiography, I'm not sure where you've read evidence that his biological father, who died before Clinton was even born, was in Italy when Clinton was supposed to have been conceived. Again, for the record, Clinton's mother and biological father MET in Shreveport THREE years before he was born. Clinton was born in Hope, Arkansas on August 19, 1946.

Back to Vitter now. I believe that's who Oyster was writing about.

Did Sharon say that she forgave Vitty-cent three weeks ago? Hmmm. What did she know that the rest of us didn't at the time?
