Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) apologized last night after his telephone number appeared in the phone records of the woman dubbed the "D.C. Madam," making him the first member of Congress to become ensnared in the high-profile case.

A conservative red-state Republican (who railed against gay marriage because it would weaken the "sanctity of marriage") caught using whores?
Who woulda thunk the GOP and religious right would be riddled with hypocrites.
Oh, wait, I forgot, that's sort of par for the course.
His statement is priceless too:
“This was a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible,” Vitter said in a statement released by his office.
“Several years ago, I asked for and received forgiveness from God and my wife in confession and marriage counseling,'' he added. "Out of respect for my family, I will keep my discussion of the matter there -- with God and them. But I certainly offer my deep and sincere apologies to all I have disappointed and let down in any way.”
I love how these Christian nuts always trot out God.
After they've finished boinking the 19-year-old call girl.
