Vitter prostitution scandal highlighted in Louisiana race

(CNN) – Rep. Charlie Melancon, the Democratic Senate nominee in Louisiana, plans to run a two-minute television ad as early as Wednesday night addressing his GOP opponent's 2007 prostitution scandal, a spokesman for Melancon's campaign said.

The ad, an abridged version of a Melancon campaign film called "Forgotten Crimes," features an audio recording of a "French Quarter prostitute," who describes her experience with Sen. David Vitter.

"He went in, took a shower, spoke very little to me at first," she says. "He did his thing. He wasn't there 15, 20 minutes at that."

Recent polls have shown Melancon trailing Vitter.

The new ad also includes statements by various unidentified Louisiana residents.

    Why dont you all leave David Vitter alone?

    After all, Mrs Vitter took care of Davids sins. At least she said she would. She said that she would not put up with infidelity like Hillary did with Bill, she said that she would be a lot more like Lorena Bobbit.

    So believing what she said, I am pretty sure that David is now a gelding, and no longer in need of the DC madam, or those that provide such services.

    To that end, hasnt David suffered enough.
