Representative Anthony Weiner resigned today, but still the conservative talk show hosts just cannot let go of the story. They are obsessed with the story. In the meantime, Republican Senator David Vitter is still in office. I think that it's high time to tell the story about "family values", Vitter, and the Republican Party. Apparently, if you are a Republican (who actually broke the law) and you ask forgiveness from God, you don't have to resign. These are a few of the "family values" that Vitter stands for. He is:
Against federal funding for abortions.
Against increases for the State Children's Health Program.
Wants abstinence only sex education in schools.
Wants schools to allow prayer.
Voted to allow tax funded companies (such as Halliburton) to sweep rape charges under the rug.
Earmarked $100,000 in federal money for a Christian group known for challenging evolution (the earmark was dropped).
This is the same person who thinks that it's hunky dory to hire prostitutes! I find this unbelievable! And, the Republicans wonder why we call them HYPOCRITES!
In addition, one of Vitter's aides resigned in 2010 because he had been arrested for attacking his girlfriend with a knife and also had an outstanding warrant for drunk driving.
THESE ARE REPUBLICAN FAMILY VALUES.
HYPOCRISY! Just another reason why I left the Republican Party.
