From The Times-Picayune:
WASHINGTON — The woman accused of being the “D.C. Madam” plans to call Sen. David Vitter, R-La., as a defense witness, her attorney said in court Monday as the high-profile racketeering and money-laundering trial got under way.
Vitter’s name is among those listed as potential witnesses at the outset of the trial of Deborah Jeane Palfrey, 52, who ran a $250-per-hour escort service that the government says was a front for prostitution. Palfrey has said her business was a legitimate escort service and her employees signed contracts stating that they would not do anything illegal.
