Wendy Ellis claims to be a former mistress who was asked to have an abortion after affair with Republican David Vitter. Although the Republican Senator denies any affair with Ellis, I’m inclined to believe he’s lying. He may preach about strong family values and high morals, but this isn’t the first time he’s dealt with a sex scandal.
In 2007, Vitter’s phone number was disclosed as one of DC Madam’s clients. He admitted to the sexcapades, but before he ran for office:
This was a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible Several years ago, I asked for and received forgiveness from God and my wife in confession and marriage counseling. Out of respect for my family, I will keep my discussion of the matter there — with God and them. But I certainly offer my deep and sincere apologies to all I have disappointed and let down in any way
Ellis claims he wanted her to have an abortion when she found out she was pregnant, which is astonishing since he claims to be pro-life! She refused, and Vitter ended the relationship while she was 6 months pregnant. Ultimately she gave the baby up for adoption.
In the interview below, Ellis is still visibly upset:
But you can sit there, walk across the grassy knoll holding your wife and your children’s hand screaming family values. But you want me to go abort my baby?
It’s just like a Republican to create a tough situation and then walk away expecting others to clean it up, while denying any responsibility what so ever. Maybe he is too cowardly to admit this affair, because even though he claims his wife forgave him for disrespecting their marriage, in an interview in 2000 she said:
I’m a lot more like Lorena Bobbitt than Hillary. If he does something like that, I’m walking away with one thing, and it’s not alimony, trust me.
It’s no wonder Vitter is denying the 3 year-long affair with Ellis. His wife likely won’t forgive him twice and he wants to keep his man parts!
