Vitter was meeting one prostitute “two or three times” a week

Seems the Senator from Louisiana had quite the active libido according to a former prostitute. Vitter apparently had to end the “relationship” with the prostitute when she told him her real name was “Wendy.” That would also be the name of Mrs. Senator David Vitter. You can’t make this stuff up — and the former prostitute passed a lie detector test yesterday.

Also, to clarify, as today’s update points out, this “relationship” lasted from July to November of 1999. So, this is not the same prostitute who worked for the so-called DC Madam. In July of 2007, Nola.Com reported, “The records show that Vitter number was called by Palfrey’s service beginning Oct. 12, 1999 and ending Feb. 27, 2001, which was Mardi Gras.”

Here’s the report from the press conference today:

A woman who once worked as a prostitute in New Orleans said Tuesday that Senator David Vitter had sex with her several times a week from July to November 1999, when he had just resigned his seat as a state representative to make his first run for Congress.

Wendy Yow Ellis said she met Vitter through an escort service and saw him two to three times a week in an apartment at Dauphine and Dumaine streets in the French Quarter. At first, he knew her only by her stage name: Leah.

Ellis said the affair ended “abruptly” when she gave him her real name. She shares a first name with his wife, Wendy Baldwin Vitter.

“When I asked him if he would like to carry this beyond the business, I gave him my name and phone number. I said, ‘My real name is Wendy,’ and he said, ‘Oh my God,’” Ellis recalled. “I did see him a few times at the club I danced at after that. He just kind of gave me a look of disbelief.”

Two or three times a week? No wonder all those old guys in the GOP Senate Caucus were applauding for Vitter after this scandal broke.

Gotta love this classic quote from Larry Flynt:

“It is not a question of muckraking and exposing the perverts,” Flynt said. “It’s more than that. It is trying to maintain some honesty in the government.”

Mr. Flynt will be publishing the details of Vitter’s visits to Ms. Ellis.

Over to you, Mitch McConnell.
