gaspSen. David Vitter (R-LA): 100% rating from the Christian Coalition, and the first prominent politician to turn up on the phone records of the D.C. prostitution ring.
Readers with Lexis-Nexis access will enjoy a search of Louisiana news sources using the terms "David Vitter" and "sex." Vitter's passions are: 1.) passing laws that allow authorities to keep close track of sex offenders; 2.) the sanctity of marriage, which is under attack by the homosexuals; 3.) paying strangers to fuck while his wife isn't around.
Most. Predictable. Thing. Ever.

Vitter enters race to replace Breaux;
Congressman touts conservative values
By Bill Walsh
WASHINGTON -- Just two days after Sen. John Breaux, D-La., announced he would not seek re-election in 2004, Rep. David Vitter, R-Metairie, became the first major candidate to jump into the race to replace him.
Vitter, 42, serving his third term in the House, touted his conservative credentials and track record of securing federal financing for projects throughout Louisiana as a member of the House Appropriations Committee....
Since his election in 1999, however, Vitter has been one of the most conservative members of a Republican-dominated House. In 2002, he voted with his party 99 percent of the time and supported President Bush's positions 85 percent of the time, according to Congressional Quarterly. He is consistently anti-abortion and pro-gun rights and he supported the war in Iraq, positions he hopes will play as well statewide as they have in the congressional district that returned him to office in 2002 with 81.5 percent of the vote.
"I think my conservative values are a very good match with Louisiana citizens," he said.
