Sen. Vitter (R-LA) and Prostitution

David Vitter is a liar, a hypocrite, and Rudy Giuliani's Southern regional chair. But the big picture out of Pamela Martin's revelations probably shouldn't be that a Southern Republican, "values" senator employed prostitutes (though given the workings of our naughtiness-by-celebrities oriented media that's what we'll get), it's what Yglesias and Lemieux point out - that the Republicans who do these things (again and again and again - and of course hypocritical Democrats do 'em too) never feel any call to alter the legal systems they are violating. And when it comes to our laws against prostitution, those are in great need of reform.
