Vitter Had Sex With New Orleans Hooker "Two to Three Times a Week"

This post, written by Pam Spaulding, originally appeared on Pam's House Blend

Senator Dave Vitter's sex-for-pay activities in Louisiana were discussed today as Larry Flynt, publisher of Hustler, held a press conference today with Wendy Yow Ellis (a.k.a. Wendy Cortez), who passed a polygraph test about her business relationship with the senator from Louisiana. We also learned today that Vitter put "the raincoat" on during his carnal activities. No diapers were mentioned. (New Orleans Times-Picayune):
Ellis said she and Vitter had safe sex and that he did not have any unusual proclivities. She said he paid $300 an hour for her services.
"He was a very clean man," Ellis said. "He came in, took a shower, did his business and would leave."
......"I have been called a liar all of my life," Ellis said. "This is one time that you can't call me a liar. I have admitted my wrongs. I am not proud of myself for my past, but my integrity and my self-respect mean more to me today than anything."
