Senator Vitter doesn’t even know what the Loving v. Virginia case is

More amazing video from the fearless Mike Stark.

Just a couple weeks ago, a Louisiana Justice of the Peace refused to marry an interracial couple. That was a huge news story. And, it evoked a lot of discussion about the 1967 United States Supreme Court ruling in Loving v. Virginia, which found that laws banning interracial marriages were unconstitutional. A couple weeks ago, Louisiana’s Senator David Vitter, the hooker loving Republican, wouldn’t comment on the Justice of the Peace scandal to Mike Stark.

Today, Vitter claimed he didn’t even know the case — or whether it was correctly decided:

This was a huge story in Louisiana and across the country. How could he not know?
