Your tax dollars (not) at work

Congressional Republicans are working to force back into law the requirement that fully a third of all American aid funds for HIV/AIDS be devoted to ineffective abstinence only programmes that have been shown not to work. This would be tragic, rather than humorous, except for the fact that is Senator David "I Never Met a Hooker I Wouldn't Shag" Vitter of Louisiana who is taking the lead in the effort.

For reasons I do not understand Senator Vitter did not resign and was not forced to resign after admitting to availing himself of the services of prostitutes in Washington and back home in Louisiana. Perhaps ex-Governor Spitzer can explain.
