Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner is reportedly resigning after conducting extramarital relationships online and then lying about them. Meanwhile, Louisiana Republican Senator David Vitter, who slept with hookers and then won re-election, is also in the news today.
Controversy about an appearance by U.S. Sen. David Vitter, R-La, at the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra's Red, White and Boom concert last year has resurfaced in the weeks leading to this year's July Fourth celebration.
The Lafayette Parish Democratic Executive Committee opposed Vitter's speech at last year's event, which is largely funded by taxpayer dollars, and claimed his appearance violated state election laws because he was a candidate for public office.
And that's about all the news today on Senator David Vitter. The Republican Party chair's response to why he has called for Mr. Weiner's resignation but not Mr. Vitter's is that Mr. Vitter's scandal happened a long time ago.
