There are sins of commission and there are sins of omission.
Senator David Vitter is guilty of both.
The sin of commission, frequenting multiple prostitutes while preaching family values, is sensational, but I don't think it's anywhere close to his current transgression.
Vitter has refused to comment or condemn Tangipahoa Parish Justice of the Peace, Keith Bardwell's, refusal to marry an interracial couple. The only comment he's made is that "Judges should follow the law." Right...and men who preach family values should honor their marriages, and elected leaders shouldn't break the law and hire prostitutes. Unfortunately people do stupid things and as one of the top elected leaders in the state...the top white, male, elected leader in the state....he has a responsibility to condemn idiots like Bardwell.
Instead, he has dodged the question and refuses to give us a direct answer. To me, the silence and sidestepping speaks clearly....he agrees with Bardwell. He condones Bardwell's actions.
In a period when this country is becoming a political powder keg and racist acts like this are re-surfacing more frequently...its inexcusable for a U.S. Senator not to condemn Bardwell's backwoods bigotry in his own state.
He's essentially telling the country and the world, "Racism is alive and well in Louisiana and them thar' boys are my people."
The true David Vitter seems to be surfacing daily....a misogynistic, racist, hypocrite.
At least David Duke wasn't a hypocrite.
