Louisiana Dems’ New Petition: Defund David Vitter For Prostitution Scandal

LAUREN VICTORIA BURKE

The Louisiana Democratic Party has a funny new online petition, targeting Republican Senator David Vitter, and his campaigns against ACORN.

The petition calls upon Congress to defund David Vitter, citing Vitter’s own past involvement with prostitutes. From the party’s press release:

Last week, admitted criminal Vitter introduced an amendment that would have kicked innocent families out of public housing in New Orleans if one member of that family committed a crime. Vitter said the federal government should not fund centers of crime.

Just yesterday, Vitter asked the U.S. Justice Department – whose investigation turned up Vitter’s phone number in the DC Madame’s phone records – to investigate an organization recently implicated in a prostitution scandal. Think about that one for a second.

Vitter said he wants to make sure federal money doesn’t go to people who break the law and we couldn’t agree more. It’s time to defund David Vitter.
