Democrats Threaten to Bring Up Vitter Prostitution Scandal

"Senate Democrats have had all they can take from David Vitter and his fixation on Obamacare -- and they're dredging up his past prostitution scandal to hit back," Politico reports.

"Vitter, a Louisiana Republican, has infuriated Democrats this week by commandeering the Senate floor, demanding a vote on his amendment repealing federal contributions to help pay for lawmakers' health care coverage."

"But Democratic senators are preparing a legislative response targeting a sordid Vitter episode. If Vitter continues to insist on a vote on his proposal, Democrats could counter with one of their own: Lawmakers will be denied those government contributions if there is 'probable cause' they solicited prostitutes."
