Republican Senator on Fantasy Escort's Phone List

Reported by Marie Therese - July 10, 2007 -

FOXNews.com reports that the phone number of Senator David Vitter of Louisiana has appeared in the files of Deborah Jeane Palfrey, owner of Pamela Martin and Associates, a fantasy escort service. Vitter issued a statement noting that he paid for Ms. Palfrey's service prior to his run for the Senate in 2004*. "This was a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible," Vitter said in a statement. "Several years ago, I asked for and received forgiveness from God and my wife in confession and marriage counseling. Out of respect for my family, I will keep my discussion of the matter there --with God and them. But I certainly offer my deep and sincere apologies to all I have disappointed and let down in any way," he wrote. Vitter was elected in 2004, filling the seat formerly held by Democrat John Breaux..

Palfrey released her records on her web site claiming that they have already been pirated. She writes: "Despite our very best intentions to maintain control of the information, our efforts seemingly have been for naught. I am concerned about manipulation of the database with false and misleading information. Even though such falsifications can be refuted in time by comparing an altered copy with the original, my attorney, Mr. Sibley and I fear that in the intervening time period, considerable damage can and will be done to the reputations of individual and entities with no connection to the business."

Senator Vitter is 46 years old and a Roman Catholic. He and his wife Wendy have four children.

* Post corrected July 10, 2007 to correct erroneous statement. Original post said that Sen. Vitter had used Ms. Palfrey's service prior to his marriage. That is not the case. His statement said that he had engaged Ms. Palfrey's services prior to his run for the Senate in 2004. Apologies to everyone. - MT
