Diaper-fetishizing Republican David Vitter probably regrets sarcastic tweet against same-sex marriage

Published

on

Twitter does not forget.

That’s what Senator David Vitter (R-Louisiana) learned the hard way when he lashed out at the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling Friday with this tweet:

The Supreme Court effectively legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 states by ruling 5-4 that state bans on it are unconstitutional.

Within 10 minutes, Vitter was reminded by journalist Sam Knight that those in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.

Vitter admitted to being a client for so-called “D.C. Madame” Deborah Jeane Palfrey in 2007, The Week reports. Facing prison time, Palfrey committed suicide while Vitter skipped along to win re-election.

In February that year, Vitter was also linked to a brothel in Louisiana, Fox News reported.

Vitter’s presentation of himself as a family values Republican is shaken by statements from Jeanette Maier, who Fox News quoted as saying Vitter was a Canal Street brothel client.

She said things between Vitter and his wife didn’t seem to be a Cleaver-esque picture of traditional family bliss.

“It wasn’t all about sex,” she told the Associated Press. “In fact, he just wanted to have somebody listen to him, you know. And I said his wife must not be listening,”

Adding an additional layer of salaciousness, Larry Flynt took credit for outing Vitter with an investigative report in his magazine, Hustler, CNN reports.

Twitter users were quick to pile on Vitter after his tweet, with one recalling that part of the allegations include him wanting prostitutes to make him wear diapers, according to Wonkette:

Senior Diplomatic correspondent Barak Ravid, at Channel 13 News in Tel-Aviv, was live-tweeting the election results late Tuesday night.

"Netanyahu says Israel needs a Zionist government that is committed for Israel as a Jewish state. No government can be based on support from Arab parties," Ravid said.

Mitch McConnell crony running for Kentucky AG is ineligible for office: lawsuit

Published

on

On Tuesday, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported that a new lawsuit seeks to remove Daniel Cameron from the ballot as the Kentucky GOP's nominee for state attorney general.

According to the lawsuit, filed by retired union worker and "concerned citizen" Joseph Leon Jackson Sr. in Jefferson Circuit Court, Cameron does not meet the office requirement of having practiced law for eight years — because although he was admitted by the Kentucky Bar Association in 2011, he spent two of the following years clerking for U.S. District Judge Gregory Van Tatenhove.

Trump lashes out at Lindsey Graham after he accuses the president of showing ‘weakness’

Published

on

President Donald Trump and Sen. Lindsey Graham, once bitter enemies, have become close allies since the 2016 election as the South Carolina Republican realized it was in his personal interest to cozy up to the White House. But on Tuesday, fractures emerged between the two in public over a key issue for Graham: Iran.

Graham is on the severely hawkish wing of the Republican Party, and he clearly wants a war with Iran. He began a series of tweets Tuesday by praising Vice President Mike Pence’s briefing that day about the recent attack on Saudi oil infrastructure, saying he believes that “such a sophisticated attack could not have occurred without Iran’s blessing and direct involvement.” He called it an “an act of war” and lauded the Trump administration’s “efforts to create a regional coalition, thoroughly brief the Congress on the actions taken, and come up with a plan of action to restore deterrence against an evil regime in Iran.”
