SKELETONS IN THE CLOSET

Absolutely, Positively DO NOT Ask Antigay Sen. David Vitter About His Prostitution Past!

ap070717017498-1d1284c8f874db7293762df2aa6d60eb2d4d30ac-s300-c85It’s not easy running for office on an antigay “family values” platform when you have a history of patronizing expensive prostitutes. Just ask Louisiana senator/gubernatorial candidate David Vitter.

In 2007, Vitter admitted to spending thousands and thousands of dollars on hookers, who he reportedly paid to dress him up in diapers and spank him like a little baby. Now, as he mounts his campaign for the Louisiana governor’s office, his pervy past is coming back to haunt him yet again.

On Tuesday, WVLA-TV reporter Derek Myers caught up with Vitter, who, by the way, opposes anything having to do with equal rights for gay people, to ask whether the senator still enjoys roleplaying with prostitutes.

The exchange happened in the parking lot of the Louisiana Secretary of State’s office. Vitter declined to answer his question on record and instead got on the phone with WVLA-TV and allegedly threatened to pull $250,000 worth of advertising if Myers wasn’t immediately fired.

The station apparently caved to Vitter’s demand because, hours later, Myers got a call saying he was being terminated from his job. No clear explanation was given.

Jim Baronet, the station’s general manager, said the rumors that Myers was fired at Vitter’s request simply aren’t true.

“Nobody from the senator’s office called and asked for anything or demanded anything whatsoever,” Baronet said. “Not at all. I’m surprised to even hear that.”

But that doesn’t quite jive with what Vitter’s campaign is saying. Luke Bolar, a spokesperson for the senator, said they did call the station. But it was only to alert them that Myers had violently assaulted one of the campaign’s volunteers, a claim Myers denies.

“Vitter’s people had accused us of assault, which obviously is not true,” he told Gawker.

According to Myers, he has the video of the confrontation that would completely exonerate him of any assault allegations, but that the station immediately issued him “an unofficial cease-and-desist letter” demanding he not to publicize it.

Something tells us there’s more to this story. We’re patiently waiting for the other shoe to drop.

    Isn’t he the one who likes diapers?

  • Brian JC Kneeland

    Keep this going – so that evveryone sees it!

  • bobbyjoe

    I’d call Vitters a crybaby, but apparently he really likes that kind of thing.

  • Josh447

    I’d dress him up in diapers and spank him for free. As long as he screamed “harder daddy!” Obviously he wanted more discipline or got way too much from his Mama. Interesting how this stuff plays out. I guess it could also be just down home hillbilly fun and that’s it.

  • Kangol

    Looks like anti-gay David Diaper Vitter will be Louisiana’s next governor. IOKIYAR!

  • Marylou Porter

    I wonder if tax payers paid for his time he spent with hookers.?????Probably.!

  • John Andrew K. Carver

    That ugly old fart would have to pay to get anyone to “play” with him ( for sex, role play or anything else)

  • Tony Chaplinski

    “his” doing or getting prostitution?

  • Captain Obvious

    Personally I think fetishes are perfectly fine as long as they aren’t harming anyone and it’s adults who explore themselves sexually who are usually the most comfortable in their own skin.

    So it’s really strange that this guy is anti-gay but has a fetish most would ridicule all day long(and already have). You’d think with a fetish like that he’d know better than to go into politics or anything public. It’s basically asking to be made fun of as you’d be recognized pretty much everywhere you went.

    Even if he wasn’t anti-gay people would still go in on him because they can take him down a peg and make themselves feel better.

    I mean Queerty wrote not one but two(or more) articles making fun of people with “weird” fetishes… and one was about gay teens who had this particular diaper fetish which could have and may have put their lives in danger.

    I don’t really know what to think aside from everyone involved really needs to grow up. Fetishes are healthy and being anti-anyone is stupid.

  • Josh447

    I think the diaper fetish is just an extension of the common fetish of calling your lover “baby”. “Love ya baby” “harder baby” “kiss me baby”. We’re all into fetishes or are we just being exploratory humans like it truly is. I think it’s the latter. But then, who knows, baby.

  • Captain Obvious

    @Josh447: For guys I think it might have to do with your first erections to be honest. I don’t have kids myself, but young mothers are frequently shocked to find their infant sons have an erection.

    For women I have no idea how they got into it.

    At the end of the day it’s not as big a deal as people make it out to be. And I’m always honestly surprised when people pretend to be so kinky and anti-strict religious beliefs but then turn into nuns when it comes to kink and fetishes.

    Freaking out about kink is just as bad as the people who are anti-gay and think sex should only be between man and woman for the purpose of creation.

    I mean kink is all about exploring your own mind and who you are. It’s ridiculous that people are literally bullied about that. Well as long as it’s not on the list of “approved” fetishes like leather or domination.

    I kinda miss the days when people kept their business to themselves and no one cared about your own private business unless you advertised it. And the average dummy didn’t have access to advertise their business to the world.

  • Billy Budd

    Come on, it is very funny that he likes to be spanked. He is in a position of power, he is a famous politician, he is the big boss. And he likes to wear diapers and be spanked? WOW. That is FABULOUS.

  • Cynthia Deitrich

    Wow seems to be at least one story a day of these idiots being exposed! Good! Not that it happened, but they are getting caught.

  • Shanestud

    It’s always about the money, WVLA-TV knows there’s at least $250,000 of Vitter’s campaign war chest that could be going to them. The media can be whores as much as the politicians with available cash.

  • Captain Obvious

    @Billy Budd: After living in West Hollywood and all the things I’ve seen on the internet it’s rather tame and uninteresting by comparison. Some people have fetishes about eating people or being stabbed with sharp objects.

    I mean kink is kink but this isn’t actually all that weird since it doesn’t involve death or murder…

  • Noel Hoklin

    Oh but he got down on his knees and asked the invisible man for forgiveness and now it’s all just a memory (that he jacks off to).

  • Chris Tan

    In early July 2007, Vitter’s phone number was included in a published list of phone records of Pamela Martin and Associates, a company owned and run by Deborah Jeane Palfrey, also known as the “D.C. Madam”, convicted by the U.S. government for running a prostitution service. Hustler identified the phone number and contacted Vitter’s office to ask about his connection to Palfrey. The following day, Vitter issued a written statement in which he took responsibility for his “sin” and asked for forgiveness. On July 16, 2007, after a week of self-imposed seclusion, Vitter emerged and called a news conference. Standing next to his wife, Vitter asked the public for forgiveness. Following Vitter’s remarks, Wendy Vitter, his wife, spoke, but both refused to answer any questions.

    While the Louisiana state Republican Party offered guarded support, national Republicans offered forgiveness. The Nation predicted that the Republican Party would be in a “forgiving mood”, pointing out if Vitter did step down, then Governor of Louisiana, Kathleen Blanco, a Democrat, would likely appoint a Democrat to take Vitter’s place until a special election took place, thus increasing Democratic control over the Senate.

    Liberals renewed calls for Vitter’s resignation during a sexting scandal involving U.S. Representative Anthony Weiner in June 2011.

    On June 26, 2015, the same day the United States Supreme Court announced their marriage equality ruling, Vitter ironically twittered “Chick-fil-A kind of day” a tweet that stirred a large number of comments, including “You always know exactly where to go when you want to uphold the sanctity of marriage, Senator.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QufjIbBH9lU

  • Andrew Hwang

    Because people can’t google.

  • Cam

    He should sue the campaign for slander. They have claimed he “violently assaulted” a staffer.

    Why weren’t the police called? He has footage that sounds like it shows this is false, seems like he has a great case, AND by demanding he not expose the footage it sounds like the station is an accessory.

  • Janice Lloyd

    He was poking at the white house when he was found at the whore house.

  • Janice Lloyd

    Yep he campaigned on family values while seeing prostitutes in New Orleans and Washington. He defines “family” differently.

  • Ladbrook

    If diapers and infantilism is Vitter’s chosen kink, then he’s still into it. Kinks don’t just “disappear” from one’s psyche because the press gets wind of it. If anything, the exposure and forced separation typically reinforces the desire and ultimately intensifies it.

    I’d predict that Vitter is still, in some way, involved with his kink-of-choice. My guess is that he has a “mommy” on call who is paid quite well to keep his secret (maybe a staffer?). If not, then his wife has taken over his “parenting” duties in order to keep all of this a secret and to prove to his supporters that he’s been “cured” of his sins.

  • Tom Remillard

    This yo yo is a piece of garbage

  • PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS

    First time a Governors Mansion will ever need a nursery constructed without the First Lady being preggers………………..

  • Captain Obvious

    It’s a very common fetish despite being unknown to non-kinky people. Check out Tumblr sometime, tons of twink-age guys 18-25(and guys much older) doing that and more. Ironically despite Dan Savage’s ignorant ranting a lot of the guys are hot, I don’t want kids myself but… they might make me change my mind.

    I just find it kinda funny the larger gay community is pretending kink is an accepted aspect of our group moreso than it is for straight people who typically have to hide it.

    Suddenly we’re chaste nuns who only bang for procreation(which we can’t do) and don’t explore sexually? Since when?

    Like I said in another post Queerty went to Tumblr found a bunch of pics of gay teens with this fetish and outed them for their own vindictive amusement. All despite the fact that they could’ve been kicked out of their homes, harmed at school, or denied future jobs. They weren’t famous, against the gay community, or holding political chairs.

    I could see if this was only about Vitter being that this is more like a drive-by with a playground in between you and your target it’s really irresponsible to bash the fetish to get at Vitter and strike more gay people than you’re “helping”. This fetish is largely held by young gay men publicly, straight people don’t really allow themselves the sexual freedom to explore fetishes… so by attacking it you’re really just hitting a lot of unintended targets.

    The average guy with this fetish (at least on tumblr) looks like this: http://36.media.tumblr.com/7205b8dcd04856c87958f0812317cd8d/tumblr_neltziJd1x1rmspgxo4_500.png

    Not the image you see on tv which is usually a really obese old man for the sole agenda of keeping people from exploring kinks because they’re so terrible. (PS this guy above is not gay((yet)) but like I said most are)

    I’m sure some perceptions change when they see a young guy with abs rather than Jabba the Hutt.

    But if you still have to attack kink then have at it and sound just like the people who hate us for being “different” and exploring our own psyche freely without restriction.

  • Ladbrook

    @Captain Obvious: I don’t think most are attacking Vitter’s kink or anyone else who enjoys it. Speaking only for myself, I think we are simply using it as an example of yet another social-con who paints himself as a “normal” Jesus loving guy who’s fighting the perverts on the voters’ behalf, but who privately behaves in a very “abnormal” way… up to and including his illegal habit of engaging sex-workers.

  • Desert Boy

    Diaper Boy is a freak.

  • martinbakman

    Hiring a hooker is a bit more noble than some of the shenanigans Bill Clinton pulled as Gov. of Arkansas and later as our Prez.

    But yeah, if Vitter’s going to play the morality card yet hasn’t played by his own family values rules, then his own convictions are about as deep as Clinton’s.

    Shine a light on it.

  • Atomicrob

    Hypocrites usually are thefts to cast aspersions at others. Oh well . . . the powerful like Senator Vitter get away with it, the average person is castigated . . . Diapers and spanking? Anfd he believes he is “normal” and gays are not? Imagine the psychological ramifications regarding that one? ;-)

  • D P

    What of the reporter Derek Myers? I hope he’s landed on his feet, and possibly seeking restitution, or something along those lines?
