DEBATE REVIEWS: Vitter 'refuses to answer' questions on 'most important experience' of his life
At tonight’s gubernatorial debate, David Vitter described the DC Madam scandal as “the most important experience of my life,” but still “refused to answer [the] moderator’s questions on prostitution allegations.” When asked directly for the first time, Vitter chose not to explain why he missed a vote to honor 28 fallen soldiers on the same day he took a call from the DC Madam.
Meanwhile, Vitter failed to explain why he skipped at least 3 hearings on Syria in recent years, including 2 Armed Service Committee hearings and a Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing on October 1 on the Syrian refugee crisis.
Here’s what the analysts are saying:
@DavidVitter said the 2007 prostitution scandal was “the most important experience of my life.”
Vitter refuses to answer moderator’s question on prostitution allegations, JBE says he will, as a christian, forgive but not forget #lagov
Moderator asks @DavidVitter about the “prostitutes over patriots” phone call. He doesn’t answer.
Moderators going there- asking about missed vote bc of DC Madam call, Vitter supporters losing it. #lagov
