Did God Save the Senator?

Michael Collins
Washington, D.C.

Senator David Vitter, the family values politician from Louisiana, admitted that he’d committed “a serious sin” and strayed from his marriage. There are always consequences. Vitter may be sleeping lightly with good reason.

In a 2000 interview, wife Wendy wowed to take action, Lorena Bobbitt Style, if she ever discovered that her husband David ever strayed from the marriage .

In 2000, Wendy Vitter told Newhouse News Service she could not be as forgiving as Livingston's wife or Hillary Clinton if her husband were unfaithful.

“I’m a lot more like Lorena Bobbitt than Hillary,” Mrs. Vitter told Newhouse News. “If he does something like that, I’m walking away with one thing, and it’s not alimony, trust me.” Yahoo News 07/10/07

No doubt this has created stress in the Vitter household. Mrs. Vitter had every reason to think that her man, Senator David Vitter, (R-LA), would stay within the marital bond and avoid purchasing the services of sex workers. All she had to do was read his political positions as a U.S. Senator from Louisiana. Imagine the shock when Sen. Vitter confessed to “a serious sin” after his phone number was found in the records of the D.C. Madam, Deborah Palfrey. Imagine the Senator’s fear when he recalled the Lorena Bobbitt allusion (see below).

Vitter’s Virtues – God and Family

Senator David Vitter (R-LA) advertises a strong family platform. This statement from his web page is fairly clear.

We share a common goal – to make Louisiana an even better place to live, work, and raise a family. As the parents of four children, my wife Wendy and I get up every day dedicated to securing a truly bright future for all of us in Louisiana.

That’s not all. Vitter went out of his way to identify himself as a paragon of virtue, a straight shooter for the values of family and church.
