And in Washington Republican Senator David Vitter of Louisiana has announced he will not resign even though he admitted making telephone calls to an alleged prostitution ring in Washington. Vitter said the incident was "a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible." Vitter is a first-term senator who also serves as Southern regional chair for Republican Rudolph Giuliani's presidential campaign. Vitter became a Congressman in 1999 replacing Republican Bob Livingston who resigned after an adultery scandal. At the time Vitter praised Livingstone's decision and he called on President Bill Clinton to do the same because of the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Vitter said: "I think Livingston's stepping down makes a very powerful argument that Clinton should resign as well and move beyond this mess."
