Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt reveled in Sen. David Vitter’s admission of a "very serious sin" involving an escort service and said Wednesday he’s got leads on embarrassing sexual activities involving other members of Congress.
Mr. Flint believes as I do that those that thump the loudest often have the most to hide, as was the case with Senator Vitter.
Vitter, a Republican from Louisiana, issued the public statement Monday after Flynt’s magazine contacted him and said phone records linked him to a Washington, D.C., service that federal prosecutors say was a prostitution ring.
This is almost too good t be true, but it is.
Flynt said he was indignant over what he called hypocrisy represented by Vitter, 46, a social conservative.
"I don’t want a man like that legislating for me, especially in the areas of morality," he said.
In 2004, Vitter campaigned with a promise of "protecting the sanctity of marriage," and was a co-author of the "Federal Marriage Act" that sought to prohibit courts from interpreting same-sex marriage laws.
Flynt has offered to pay $1 million to anyone who can show he or she had a sexual encounter with a member of Congress or a high-ranking government official. He said the offer has produced promising tips.
"We’ve got 20-some investigations that all look good," Flynt said during a news conference at his Beverly Hills office.
"We have got some high-ranking Republican and Democratic members of the Senate and the House," he told reporters. "If I get just a couple of those phonies out of there, maybe it will be a step forward."
"This is payback time," he said. "I’m not exposing anyone’s sex life. … I’m only exposing the hypocrisy."
And all I can say is it’s about time and I am glad that someone like Larry Flynt is taking the lead on doing it. I can’t wait to find out who the nest person to be exposed is going to be.
Vitter Quotes On Gay Marriage…
"This is a real outrage. The Hollywood left is redefining the most basic institution in human history."
No you tell me, what’s worse. Allowing two people who love each other to get married or taking the sacred oath of marriage and then be caught having hired and slept with prostitutes?
Yeah, that’s what I thought.
