Check out this statement we just got from the Louisiana Democratic Party, responding to Republican Sen. David Vitter’s recent Web ad going after his potential opponent, Blue Dog Congressman Charlie Melancon, for attending a Democratic fundraising event in Massachusetts. What was so notable about it is that Vitter, who was linked to a prostitution scandal in 2007 and apologized for committing a “serious sin,” attacked Melancon for going to a “Liberal LuvFest.”
“In contrast to the kind of luvfest David Vitter is used to, this trip was legal, public and no money changed hands'” said Louisiana Democratic Party spokesman Kevin Franck.
“As we all remember, the last time David Vitter made public comments about a ‘luvfest’ he end up begging for forgiveness. I am anticipating an apology from him for this web ad in the near future.”
Franck also said that Melancon himself did not take campaign contributions at the event, which if true would further undercut the whole message of Vitter’s Web ad.
