One of the strangest things about Monday’s late-breaking revelation that Louisiana Sen. David Vitter (R) was a client of the “D.C. Madam” was the way in which the senator himself disclosed it. Turns out, it maybe had to do with the threatening phone call Vitter got from Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt.
A lawyer for the D.C. Madam told The Sleuth that Flynt, “through his agents,” contacted Vitter Monday morning telling him that the senator’s phone number showed up in the phone records of Deborah Jeane Palfrey, the Madam herself…
Uh-oh!! I think I might have some idea of what he was buying!!!! But wait!!! The story gets even worse!!! The senator is missing!!!! Here’s another story from WaPo:
David Vitter is missing in action.
Or, to be precise, he is missing because it looks as if he got some action.
Camera crews yesterday staked out the home, office and committee room of the Republican senator from Louisiana, who admitted Monday night that he was in the proverbial little black book of the alleged “D.C. Madam.” But the lawmaker was on the lam.
The Senate voted to confirm a federal judge in Michigan. No Vitter.
The public works subcommittee on which Vitter is the ranking Republican held a hearing. No Vitter.
Three Louisiana officials testified at another hearing about Gulf Coast rebuilding. No Vitter.
Republican senators sat down to lunch with Vice President Cheney. No Vitter.
A Rethuglican who missed a free lunch?!?! Kids, this is serious!! Quit the tittering….oops, bad choice of words….quit the childish giggling over the senator and how he got his dinky stinky!!! This is no laughing matter!!! A man is missing!!! Please, form search parties, and let’s find him–before I run out of exclamation points!!!!
