      but i don't see how that's his fault.  He didn't voluntarily go to police, didn't charge her, and if he were trying to threaten anyone to keep his name silent, he did a horrible job.  He's part of a system that doesn't charge the clients, but Palfrey wasn't a saint.  High-end, shmi-end, the women who worked for her needed help, and she kept exploiting them as much as Vitter did.   If she didn't want to face jail, she shouldn't have been a pimp.  Vitter of course admitted cirminal activity, but his state didn't see it that way or didn't care.  He's only responsible for his own actions, and of course the laws he'd impose on everyone else like taking away our healthcare.  

      Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.

        ...but I disagree. A woman is dead and wouldn't be if she were not embroiled in the Vitter scandal.

        Blood on the hands is still blood on the hands, no matter how many degrees of separation that can be conjured.

        •  It's not "the vitter scandal" (0+ / 0-)

          the investigation was over HER escort service, and his name came up, along with a few lower level executive branch appointees.  Had Vitter's name not been involved, she'd still have been charged, and there's no reason to believe she wouldn't have killed herself.
