The Cost of a Hooker Is Going Up In Congress


Whore house madame


Sen. David Vitter could have a tough vote ahead. The Louisiana Republican, who weathered a prostitution scandal in 2007, is the target of a new bill that would prevent him, and other senators who have come under ethics scrutiny for soliciting prostitutes, from getting health insurance subsidies by virtue of his Senate employment.


It seems the upcoming health care bill amendment is heading to a vote in the Senate. It's pretty clear what it's intended to do -- what should have been done before -- punish the irresponsible behavior of Vitter.

(iv) LIMITATION. -- No employee contribution payable under section 8906 of title 5, United States Code, with respect to health insurance coverage under this subparagraph, may be provided on behalf of an individual who the relevant congressional ethics panel has probable cause to determine has engaged in the solicitation of prostitution.

This visit to hooker-land could end up costing David V a few pennies if this gets voted in.

...the government has contributed to the Vitter family's health insurance since 1999, basing its estimate on 75 percent of the standard monthly premium, which is the limit on the Hill. The total, provided to HuffPost: $112,624.88.

That's a lot of money to go off makin' whoopee. So perhaps the lesson that the Louisiana Senator will learn from this legislation is that the next time you have the urge, don't call the Madam. It's cheaper to just go "F" yourself.

Massachusetts GOP demands Ed Markey cancel "disgusting" fundraiser with Eliot Spitzer. Double standard much?


double standard

You can't make this stuff up. Via Livewire:

In a statement, Kirsten Hughes, chairman of MassGOP, said that it's "disgusting" that [Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA)] would "rub elbows" with [Eliot] Spitzer, who resigned in 2008 amid a prostitution scandal. 

You are judged by the company you keep and it’s disgusting for Congressman Markey to rub elbows with a man best known for his solicitation of prostitutes,” said Kirsten Hughes, MassGOP Chairman.“Instead of lining his campaign coffers with donations from the disgraced Eliot Spitzer, Markey should immediately cancel the fundraiser and denounce Spitzer’s abhorrent and unacceptable behavior.  Anything short of a public condemnation and cancellation would send the wrong message to women everywhere.”

Did anyone on the right "keep company" with Newt Gingrich? How about David Vitter? Oh wait, Reince Priebus gave David Vitter a pass because “that’s a 5-year-old story.”  (Spitzer resigned five years ago.)

Okay then, how about "rubbing elbows" with the "disgusting" John Ensign? And the "abhorrent" Mark Sanford? Wasn't their behavior unacceptable? And this is just the tip of the iceberg.

All of those Republicans claimed they stood for "family values" (Spitzer didn't). All of them are hypocrites. Did they "keep company" with other Republicans? Call me crazy, but I'm guessing they did.

Here's a thought, Kirsten Hughes: If Mark Sanford can assert that if God forgives you, then cheating on your wife and lying to America shouldn’t matter any more, so can Eliot Spitzer.

Another Vitter pill: David Vitter calls Harry Reid an "idiot"


tweet vitter reid idiot

This from the genius who favors corporations over sexual assault victims; who wants to defund Planned Parenthood; who was subpoenaed by the D.C. Madam and who has a diaper fetish.

So much for Republican "family values" and "civility."

Via First Read:

Louisiana Sen. David Vitter (R), upset with Harry Reid saying Hurricane Katrina was "nothing in comparison" to Hurricane Sandy and the devastation caused to the New York-New Jersey-Connecticut area, lashed out on the social network calling the Senate majority leader an "idiot."

Yes, that's exactly how to respond when you disagree with someone. Reason and logic? Pfft! Common decency? Fugetaboutit. What a fine, genteel individual David Vitter is. A real role model. Stay classy, Vit.

Pot. Kettle. Idiot.
