New Orleans sex worker to detail her four-month relationship with Vitter
Larry Flynt is producing “the goods” tomorrow.
[Left: the two Wendys. The Louisiana Senator really has some issues, huh?]
A former New Orleans prostitute who says she had an affair with Sen. David Vitter has passed a lie-detector test and will provide details of the four-month relationship at a press conference Tuesday, according to Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt.
Wendy Cortez, whose real name is Wendy Ellis, says she had a sexual relationship with Vitter, R-La., in 1999, when he was a state legislator.
Copies of the results of Cortez's polygraph test, which she took at Flynt's request, will be provided to reporters at the news conference at Flynt's office in Beverly Hills, Calif., Hustler said in a news release Monday.
Vitter spokesman Joel Digrado wouldn't comment on the Flynt news conference. In an e-mail, Digrado said, “Sen. Vitter and his wife have addressed all of this very directly. The senator is focused on important Louisiana priorities like the water resources bill and the Iraq debate.”
…Vitter, a first-term senator elected in 2004, has denied having relationships with New Orleans prostitutes. In a call-in radio show during the Senate campaign, he dismissed as “absolutely and completely untrue” that he had a relationship with a Wendy Cortez.
What suspense — will Diaper Dave drag Wendy #1 before the cameras again? Will his fellow GOP senators look the other way once more, so close to the debacle of toe-tapping Larry? Pop the popcorn…
Will she get a “do over”? — “I stand before you to tell you very proudly, I am proud to be Wendy Vitter.”
