In yesterday's report on Sen.David Vitter—the anti-gay Louisiana Republican "family values" senator implicated as an associate of the DC Madam—you'll recall we mentioned he has been previously accused of patronizing another madam in New Orleans. Vitter denied those charges in 2002.
Jeanette Maier, the so-called Canal Street Madam, contradicts Vitter's denial. She tells the New Orleans Times-Picayune the senator frequented her high-end establishment and named him "as a client because she was angry that the Washington allegations made [Vitter] look like a one-dimensional adulterer, when she sees him as a 'good man.'"
"He was not a freak. He was not into anything unusual or kinky or weird."
David Vitter has consistently opposed gay rights and same-sex marriage and was one of the main supporters of the failed Federal Marriage Amendment. "I don't believe there's any issue that's more important than this one," the now-disgraced politician told CNN in June 2006 as the Senate voted on the legislation.
