So what exactly is Senator Vitter apologizing for if he didn’t do it? And then to throw GOD in the mix and say GOD forgives him. Well Senator Vitter, I spoke to GOD this evening and he told me “I in no way forgave David Vitter for having sex with that prostitute and cheating on his wife” GOD went on to tell me, “I told him he must speak out against the war in Iraq and endorse any Democratic candidate for President, then I will consider forgiveness”. There you have it folks, GOD has spoken and his statement seems to indicate there is some lying coming out of the office of Senator David Vitter. Here are the two articles that show another Republican Flip-Flop.

On 9 July 2006, Sentaor David Vitter issued a statement where he apologized for “a very serious sin in my past” after his telephone number appeared among those associated with an escort service operated by the so-called “D.C. Madam.”

His statement that day went on to say “This was a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible,” Vitter said in the 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.”

Then fast-forward to 16 July 2006, Senator Vitter Flip-Flops and denies he did anything wrong.

Sen. David Vitter on Monday denied having relationships with New Orleans prostitutes, a week after admitting links to a Washington escort service that federal prosecutors allege was a prostitution ring.

Vitter emerged from a week of seclusion by appearing at a news conference in suburban Metairie while holding hands with his wife, Wendy. He denied the New Orleans prostitution allegations and offered no indication that he would resign. He said he planned to fly Monday night to Washington to resume work in the Senate.

“I want to again offer my deep, sincere apologies to all those I have let down and disappointed with actions from my past,” Vitter said. “I am completely responsible, and I am so very, very sorry.”

Vitter said that the events in Washington took place years ago, and that he and his wife had undergone marriage counseling.

“No matter how long ago it was, I know this hurt the relationship of trust I have enjoyed with so many of you, and I have a lot of work to do to rebuild that,” he said.

On July 9, Vitter apologized for committing a “very serious sin in my past,” acknowledging that his Washington phone number was among those called several years ago by an escort service run by Deborah Jeane Palfrey.

Federal prosecutors accuse Palfrey of racketeering by running a prostitution ring that netted more than $2 million over 13 years, beginning in 1993. She contends her escort service, Pamela Martin and Associates, was a legitimate business.

Telephone records show that the service called Vitter’s number five times from 1999 to 2001, while he was a U.S. representative.

Also last week, the former madam of a New Orleans brothel that was shut down several years ago claimed Vitter was a client in the 1990s. However, her defense lawyer and a U.S. attorney who prosecuted her said Vitter’s name never came up in that investigation.

The Times-Picayune newspaper in New Orleans also reported that Vitter had used the services of another New Orleans prostitute.

Vitter, 46, referred vaguely to the New Orleans-based reports but said that “those stories are not true.”

The first-term Republican said he has worked hard on his marriage and on living by the values he has long espoused as a politician.

“I believe I received forgiveness from God. I know I did from Wendy,” he said. “Unfortunately, my admission has incurred some longtime political enemies and those hoping to profit from this situation to spread falsehoods, too.”

Vitter did not take questions at his news conference Monday, but Wendy Vitter stepped to the podium and called her husband “my best friend.”

“When David and I dealt with this years ago, I forgave David and made the decision to love him and recommit to our marriage,” she said. “To forgive is not always the easy choice, but it was and is the right choice for me.”

Vitter was elected to Congress in 1999 to fill the vacancy left when Rep. Robert Livingston, R-La., resigned amid disclosures of marital indiscretions. Vitter was elected to the Senate in 2004.

U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., said she would have no comment on the matter until she speaks with Vitter.
