Y'all may remember this post, in which I wrote about a rumored Jackson fundraiser for Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) thrown by former Rep. Chip Pickering (R-MS). Well, since the post, I've had the fundraiser confirmed by more than a few actual attendees.
Why was the fundraiser such a big deal? Well, Pickering's obviously tainted goods right now thanks to the things he allegedly wrote in his own diary. Sen. Vitter has had his own marital issues in the past. Here's a history of his penchant for hookers. As a result, I'm sure Vitter didn't want to be publicly connected to Chip if at all possible. Here's where it gets worse..
