David Vitter loses Louisiana governor race in 2015 because of long past prostitution incidents

Even after many years, when you thought you put it behind you, the harsh reality is that prostitution and human trafficking troubles will continue to destroy you. Former U.S. senator David Vitter from Louisiana learned this reality the hard way.

David Vitter (Republican) won the 2004 election for a U.S. Senator seat from Louisiana. However, he had a dark secret. David Vitter, although married and raising a family, and a very public high figure, was having adulterous affairs with escorts/prostitutes through a Washington D.C. based escort agency led by Deborah Jeane Palfrey, nicknamed the DC Madam. When the DC Madam was arrested by the feds in 2006 and facing pimping and prostitution charges, the DC Madam was publicly revealing her john clients. Although David Vitter wasn’t publicly revealed yet, he decided to publicly confess in 2007 that he was a john client. David Vitter then won re-election in 2010 and it seemed like he put his prostitution life behind.

David Vitter then ran for the Louisiana governor seat in 2015. This time he was facing tougher and smarter opponents. His opponent John Edwards (Democrat) brought back to light David’s prostitution addictions that happened over 8 years ago. John Edwards then won the race, which is an incredible feat for a Democrat to win in a strong Republican state.

Let this be a lesson to everyone. Even when you thought you put your criminal life behind you many years ago, it will continue to haunt and ruin you.
