La. Sen. Vitter says he'll vote against Sotomayor

BATON ROUGE, La. — Republican U.S. Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana says he will vote against confirming Sonia Sotomayor to be a Supreme Court justice.

He said Tuesday that Sotomayor was ambiguous on gun rights and that he's concerned she would determine the outcome of cases based on personal biases.

Sotomayor is expected to be confirmed as the first Hispanic justice of the high court.

Louisiana's senior senator, Mary Landrieu, has said she supports Sotomayor's nomination, calling her fair-minded and praising her breadth of experience.

Vitter is running for a second term. Last summer, Vitter apologized for a "very serious sin in my past" after it was disclosed that his phone number was among those called several years ago by a Washington-area escort service that prosecutors have said was a front for prostitution.

I saw a short piece on "Family Values" Vitter on cable news tonight being the huge hypocrite he is...if Stormy Daniels runs against him, what fun that would be! Think of the photo possibilities!

BTW, I'm still enjoying your photography very much. Thanks for your continued posting.

I am certainly disappointed in Sen. Vitter, at least by some of his behavior. A Stormy Daniels run for the U . S. Senate can only perpetuate a perception that La. politics remains a joke , like when Edwin Edwards vs. David Duke for governor. The bumper sticker - "I voted for the crook", said it all.
