(The Politico) Sen. David Vitter has tried move on after his embarrassing hooker scandal, but Hustler magazine won't let him.
In a magazine interview hitting the racks soon, a woman who worked in New Orleans brothel has given a detailed, and at times explicit, interview about a 1999 affair with Vitter. The Louisiana Republican made a very public apology earlier this year about "sins" in his past, but he has not acknowledged any specific activities. Vitter's phone number also came up in the phone records of the D.C. Madame case.
The Crypt has received a scanned paper copy of the interview, but the pictures and some of the quotes are totally NSFW (not safe for work). Discerning Crypt readers can decide whether they want to check out Hustler's Web site or reach for the row of black plastic wrapped mags at your local book store or newstand.
The New Orleans Times-Picayune first revealed some of the details of the interview today. In the interview, ex-prostitute Wendy Ellis claims that Vitter was a regular customer at a French Quarter brothel, paid $300 per visit, and demanded that Ellis wear no lotions, perfumes or any other scents so that no smells would be left on him after his visit.
Hustler says Ellis, who used to go by the name Wendy Cortez, passed a lie detector test before giving her interview and posing for X-rated photos. Ellis, according to the Times-Picayune, has a criminal record, including credit card fraud, a point made by some of Vitter's supporters who dispute her story.
Vitter's office declined to comment about the details in the interview.
"Sen. Vitter is completely focused on issues critical to Louisiana like WRDA [the water resources bill] and immigration and has already addressed all of this," Vitter's office said in a statement Thursday.
