David Vitter, the Louisiana senator who had his own prostitution scandal, has been mentioned in conjunction with now-former governor of New York many times over the past week. Here's how Vitter responded, according to the Times-Picayune :
"Anybody who looks at the two cases will see there is an enormous difference between the two of them. The people that are trying to draw comparisons to the two cases are people who've never agreed with me on important issues like immigration and other things."
(Hat Tip: Political Wire)
I see at least a couple of difference. 1) Vitter never appeared to be at risk of being prosecuted. 2) Vitter had a higher approval rating than Spitzer when their respective scandals broke.
Whether those differences (or others) justify the incongruous endings to the two scandals is, of course, open to debate.
