Diddling while Washington Dawdles
The first Republican Senator elected from Louisiana since Reconstruction as been caught with his pants down. Senator Ritter was a client of the D.C. "Madam" and admitted to purchasing the services of a sex worker. No word on the gender of the employee. Since the Senator is a conservative Republican and Christian, we could assume it was a female prostitute, but who knows with the state of hypocrisy among such politicians.
What bothers most people more than the act of a married man purchasing such services is the unfairness of the hypocrisy. Politicians who are traditional "family values" and law and order candidates seem to be the ones most often nailed for flirting with teenagers, cheating on their wives, and breaking the law. (prostitution is illegal). While such behaviors are wrong, it is particulary galling when one has a history of claiming personal morality.
The Senator has said that he apologized to his wife and to God. I think he forgot about the taxpayers and his constituents.
