Ex-Hooker Tells All About Sen. David Vitter
The current issue of Hustler
magazine has an interview with the woman who says she was Republican Sen. David Vitter's hooker -- as well as a "naked pictorial" -- according to The Advocate
newspaper of Baton Rouge. (Excerpts on the flip.)
But first, let's underscore that the man who campaigned against "Massachusetts values" has made his career grandstanding on the sanctity of marriage -- apparently while breaking laws as well as his marriage vows. Here is what he had to say when running for the U.S. Senate:
Vitter Statement on Protecting the Sanctity of Marriage
We need a U.S. Senator who will stand up for Louisiana values, not Massachusetts's values. I am the only Senate Candidate to coauthor the Federal Marriage Amendment; the only one fighting for its passage... stated David Vitter.
Here are excerpts from The Advocate's
WASHINGTON -- A former New Orleans prostitute who said U.S. Sen. David Vitter was a regular client appears in the newest edition of Hustler magazine, granting an interview alongside a naked pictorial.
Wendy Ellis, 34, says she had a relationship with the Louisiana Republican that lasted over three months when Vitter was running for Congress in 1999. The two would rendezvous at a French Quarter apartment two or three times a week, Ellis says.
Ellis was an exotic dancer in a Bourbon Street club when she was contacted by an acquaintance who ran an escort service, she says.
Ellis says she learned from her escort manager that Vitter was her state representative.
"I just blew it off," Ellis says.
Vitter paid her $300 per visit, Ellis says, and didn't talk much during their 20-minute sessions.
Ellis, who acknowledged being a drug abuser at the time, suggested to Vitter that they start to meet privately. Vitter got spooked when Ellis told him her name is Wendy, she says, which is the name of Vitter's wife.
But after that, Vitter went "once or twice a week" to the Bourbon Street club where she worked to watch her dance.
