By Matt DeLong The Louisiana Democratic Party has released a five-minute documentary-style video depicting Sen. David Vitter's (R-La.) infamous 2007 "D.C. madam" prostitution scandal. The video, which resembles a TV crime show, includes lurid details from an interview with a former prostitute who claimed to have had encounters with the senator -- as well as dramatic reenactments of scenes from these alleged encounters. The video is accompanied by a Web site, forgottencrimes.com, which, despite its name, is entirely about the Louisiana Republican. Vitter is facing a challenge from Rep. Charles Melancon (D-La.) in November. This is the first time he's come before voters since the scandal. The senator has largely remained quiet about the scandal since the days after his phone number was linked to Deborah Jeane Palfrey, the so-called D.C. madam. At the time, Vitter said he had committed "a very serious sin." Watch the video: (Via TPM) Louisiana - David Vitter - Democratic - Prostitution - United States
