Eliot Spitzer was caught in a prostitution scandal a year ago. He has this to say about it:
It was an egregious violation of behavior that I fell into for many reasons, but none of them an excuse or justifiable.I'm sure that David Vitter has said similar mea culpas over his past two years. It's hard to judge any public figure's sincerity base solely on words.
However, there is one difference that's pretty striking: David Vitter remains a member of the U.S. Senate after 634 days as a known consorter with whores - and I'm not even counting the first time he is alleged to have paid to play.
