|Corrupt politico runs for Republican nomination for governor. He hopes that his past will not catch up with him.|
I only wish that Deborah Pelrey would have been alive to see this clown. This clown is a certified right wing nut job and yet this clown has been embraced by the likes of the conservative agitating media.
It's like no one remembers the embarrassing scandal that put him in vine.
Vance McAllister, a Republican lawmaker from Louisiana is told to bounce while this clown is told to continue with pride. McAllister was caught on tape this year kissing one of his campaign staffers. That wasn't his wife.
Now one of the Duck Dynasty family members wants to run for McAllister's seat. McAllister was shamed out. He announced he will not run for reelection after the scandal broke.
This politico is corrupt. He is a supporter of the Tea Party Movement and has ties to the Koch brothers.
This guy was supposedly a fan of diapers and sexting.
Republican Senator David Vitter has announced he's running for governor of Louisiana. He will face a fierce primary against Lieutenant Governor Jay Dardenne for the nomination. This will be a heavily watched race.
This race will be dirty. After all Vitter has got a embarrassment back in 2007.
Vitter's phone number was included in a published list of phone records of Pamela Martin and Associates, a company owned and run by Deborah Jeane Palfrey, also known as the "D.C. Madam", convicted by the U.S. government for running a prostitution service. Hustler identified the phone number and contacted Vitter's office to ask about his connection to Palfrey.
The following day, Vitter issued a written statement in which he took responsibility for his "sin" and asked for forgiveness.
After a week of self-imposed seclusion, Vitter emerged and called a news conference. Standing next to his wife, Vitter asked the public for forgiveness. Following Vitter's remarks, Wendy Vitter, his wife, spoke. Both refused to answer any questions.
While the Louisiana state Republican Party offered guarded support, national Republicans offered forgiveness. The Nation predicted that the Republican Party would be in a "forgiving mood", pointing out if Vitter did step down, then Governor of Louisiana, Kathleen Blanco, a Democrat, would likely appoint a Democrat to take Vitter's place until a special election took place, thus increasing Democratic control over the Senate.
Will the state of Louisiana forgive this politico?
I am certain that he'll be dogged by conservatives and those who would love to him fail.
Of course, if he cheated on his wife once, he'll do it again!
