Another Toe Tapper

Posted: 10/05/2007 by Floyd in Labels: , ,

Joe DiFatta who dropped out of the Louisiana State Senate 1st District race had complained of having chest pains and might have had a minor heart attack, being his claim of dropping from the race, tonight the Times Picayune reported that DiFatta was twice detained for suspicion of lewd conduct in mall restrooms.

The report states that DiFatta watched a man use the bathroom while peering through a hole in a bathroom stall. The man held DiFatta until police arrived, at which time he was issued the misdemeanor summons and ordered to appear in court.

In the second incident, Jefferson Parish deputies working an undercover detail in a men's bathroom at Dillard's at Lakeside Shopping Center in March 2000 stopped DiFatta after he indicated a desire to engage in sex with an undercover deputy in an adjoining bathroom stall, according to an interoffice memorandum written by Sgt. Keith Conley, one of the deputies involved in the investigation.

Another similar incident involving another Republican Sen. Larry Craig of Idaho, pleaded guilty and recently lost a court battle to recant his guilty plea has vowed to stay on in the Senate, in apparent dismay to a lot of fellow Republicans.

    Another Republican hypocrite bites the dust. I feel sorry for these people that feel they must repress their actual human identities in order to be a Republican politician and make lots of money.

    I agree my friends, lately is is happening to the party of family values. anything happens they are always preaching it, look at David Vitter saying how important the ban on gay marriage was, must took top priority over Katrina, you remember Vitter the family man from Louisiana who frequented prostitutes.

    "I don't believe there's any issue that's more important than this one," said Sen. David Vitter, a Louisiana Republican. "I think this debate is very healthy, and it's winning a lot of hearts and minds. I think we're going to show real progress."

    You would think Katrina would be more on his mind, but he had to keep that image of family values held up high for his party.

    What really kills me is they all think they can get away with it!

  1. Floyd says:

    I would venture to guess that some have Beth, I am glad we have a lot of good journalists out there who don't work for CNN or Fox that break open a lot of stories, and distribute it around the net. Good to hear from you Beth. Anymore television news is more or less a canned hunt.

    Bill said it best here; Mr Clinton argues that American voters are tiring of a politics and
    media that have been under the sway of "the most ideological, rightwing
    element of the Republican party", leading to a national climate in
    which "three-dimensional reality" has been turned into "two-dimensional
    cartoons, and then [the rightwing media] try to get people to divide up
    on the basis of whether you like the cartoon or not ... I want the
    American people to stop rewarding the ideological wing of the
    Republican party, so we can have a centre-left party and a centre-right
    party and they can have real debates about real things."
