Vitter’s wife once said she was ‘more like Lorena Bobbitt’

The wife of Louisiana Senator David Vitter is apparently more forgiving than she once let on.

Vitter’s phone number has turned up on a list kept by the so-called “DC Madam,” who’s accused of running a prostitution ring. Vitter says the phone records are from before he ran for the Senate. And in a statement, he says he’s made peace with his wife, and with God. He said he’s sorry for a “serious sin.”

He may have reason to be grateful for his wife’s forgiveness, judging from comments she made seven years ago. Back then, Wendy Vitter told Newhouse News Service she could not be as forgiving as Hillary Rodham Clinton or the wife of Republican Congressman Robert Livingston, who admitted to extramarital affairs and quit Congress.

Vitter instead said she was “a lot more like Lorena Bobbitt,” who drew worldwide attention after she cut off her husband’s penis in 1993.

If he does something like that, I’m walking away with one thing, and it’s not alimony, trust me.”
(nudge, nudge, wink, wink.)
