Witness for the Prostitution

Things just keep on getting stickier and stickier for Senator David Vitter.
Last year, the Lousiana Republican admitted to having used the D.C. Madam's escort service back in 2001, when Vitter was a member of the House. Well, call it tit for tat, because now the D.C. Madam wants Vitter to testify on her behalf that she was merely running a legitimate fantasy sex service, and not an illicit, high-end prostition ring. According to TPM, the D.C. Madam has apparently subpoenaed Vitter, whose lawyer claims he'll plead the Fifth if forced to testify (if that's what the kids are calling it these days).
