Serial Adulterer Giuliani Is Disappointed That Sen. Vitter Had Sex with Hooker

And it’s not a first for Vitter

Presidential candidate Rudolph Giuliani’s reaction today to news that one of his supporters, Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) admitted he procured at least one prostitute from the so-called D.C. Madam six years ago, has raised the bar in Republican hypocrisy about adultery:

“I’m a lot more like Lorena Bobbitt than Hillary. If he does something like that, I’m walking away with one thing, and it’s not alimony, trust me.”
— Wendy Vitter

On Vitter, Giuliani … emphasized “this is a personal issue” and highlighted that he couldn’t have achieved so much in the campaign and during his years as mayor without the good character of his staffers and supporters. “But,” Giuliani added, “Some people disappoint you.”

While he was mayor of New York, Giuliani had at least two affairs outside his marriage to Donna Hanover. He made headlines when Hanover learned that Rudy planned to divorce her when he announced it at a news conference.

Vitter serves as a regional chairman of Giuliani’s campaign in the South. Recently, Giuliani’s South Carolina finance chair, Tom Ravenel, quit the campaign after it was announced he had been indicted on federal cocaine distribution charges.

Vitter was elected to the House in 1999, filling the seat vacated by Rep. Bob Livingston, the would-be Speaker of the House who was ousted at the eleventh hour when porn purveyor Larry Flynt obtained evidence about Livingston’s kinky extramarital sex life.

(Livingston was taking over the speakership from Newt Gingrich, who was removed from the leadership when it was revealed he was having an affair with a staffer. In the background of all this, Gingrich, Livingston and the House GOP were busy impeaching Pres. Bill Clinton over a sex lie.)

As regards Vitter, it turns out that this is not the first time he has been caught paying for sex:

…Vitter was accused of an extramarital affair in 1999 with a New Orleans prostitute, Wendy Cortez. Wendy Cortez contacted former Governor Treen’s office during the 2002 campaign for governor that year, because she was unhappy he was claiming to be a family values candidate and cheating on his wife with her.

He says it’s all behind him now, which sounds like a good idea, considering this quote from his wife:

“I’m a lot more like Lorena Bobbitt than Hillary,” Wendy Vitter told Newhouse News. “If he does something like that, I’m walking away with one thing, and it’s not alimony, trust me.”

“I think fear is a very good motivating factor in a marriage,” she added. “Don’t put fear down.”

Lorena Bobbitt, you may recall (and I was fuzzy on the details, which Trish pointed out), cut off her husband’s offending member after he cheated on her and repeatedly assaulted her:

In the years following their 1989 marriage, the relationship between John Wayne Bobbitt, 26, and his Ecuadorian wife, Lorena, 24, grew increasingly strained. Their marital problems allegedly stemmed from a combination of the couple’s financial troubles, John’s extramarital affairs and his intensifying emotional and physical abuse of his wife. Their troubles peaked on June 23, 1993 when John came home to their Manassas, Va., apartment intoxicated after a night of partying and allegedly forced his wife to have sex, Lorena later testified during a 1994 court hearing.

Better watch out, Senator.
