Just before I started recording, I said to the Senator, “I’ve read that you are the only senior official from Louisiana not to have commented…” then the video piks up and you hear me say, “on the judge that refused to marry an inter-racial couple.”
Vitter responds: “I don’t think that’s the case”
I say, “Have you commented? What did you have to say about it?”
Any reasonable Senator would have stopped whatever they were doing to vociferously make a clear denunciation of the miscreant magistrate at issue.
Vitter looked at me and smiled, silently… and waited for the elevator doors to lose.
