David Did Canal Street, too!

Louisiana's Family Values Senator, who puts a cash value on the price of — uh — company, now has another former madame claiming him as a customer.

New Orleans NBC affiliate WDSU interviewed former Canal Street Bordello operator Jeanette Maier, who told the station, that Vitter was a customer back in the 1990s. Here's some text:

Jeanette Maier, known as the Canal Street Madam, claimed Tuesday that Sen. David Vitter visited her Mid-City operation beginning in the mid-1990s.

According to Maier, Vitter would pay $300 an hour for services. She would not disclose how many times he came to the Canal Street home, only saying that it was more than once.

"He seems to be one of the nicest men and most honorable men I've ever met," Maier said.

She also said that although some of his visits were at the Canal Street location, others were during fishing trips and other activities with fellow politicians.

"There was more to the business than sex," she said. "There are so many demands made on these people."

The best quote of the still-emerging storm has been a Clinton-era quote by Vitter's wife Wendy about Hillary Clinton's response to her husband's affair with Monica Lewinsky. ABC News quotes a Times Picayune article from 1999:

Asked whether she could forgive her husband after an extramarital affair, as Livingston's wife had done, Wendy Vitter told the Times-Picayune: "I'm a lot more like Lorena Bobbitt than Hillary [Clinton]. If he does something like that, I'm walking away with one thing, and it's not alimony, trust me."

Wonder if the Louisiana Committee for a Republican Majority will create a legal defense fund for Mrs. Vitter should she prove to be a woman of her word?
