"Family Values" Senator Outed for Using Prostitution Ring

One of the biggest news today is that Louisiana Senator David Vitter, the man who co-authored the Federal Marriage Amendment got caught:

Louisiana Sen. David Vitter, whose telephone number was disclosed by the so-called ''D.C. Madam'' accused of running a prostitution ring, says he is sorry for a ''serious sin'' and that he has already made peace with his wife.

Here's what he had to say just last year about the marriage amendment before he was outed as a john for prostitute ring:

"I don't believe there's any issue that's more important than this one," said Sen. David Vitter, a Louisiana Republican. "I think this debate is very healthy, and it's winning a lot of hearts and minds. I think we're going to show real progress."

And here's what he had to say about Massachusetts:

“This is a real outrage. The Hollywood left is redefining the most basic institution in human history, and our two U.S. Senators won’t do anything about it.

We need a U.S. Senator who will stand up for Louisiana values, not Massachusetts’s values. I am the only Senate Candidate to coauthor the Federal Marriage Amendment; the only one fighting for its passage. I am the only candidate proposing changes to the senate rules to stop liberal obstructionists from preventing an up or down vote on issues like this, judges, energy, and on and on.” stated David Vitter.

And as Below Boston noted from the Boston Globe:

[Massachusetts has] High education rates, low teenage birth rates, low divorce rates - real family values that we actually live and not just spout off about.

Lovely, just lovely.

It seems the "good" Senator also lied about the infidelity when he was running for office:
Lies about Cheating

So we can add lying and cheating on his spouse as accomplishments he has achieved, yet same sex couples getting married is BAD, VERY BAD.
