Talent received $15,000 from senator caught in hooker scandal
In the Aug. 28 Turner Report, I noted that former Sen. Jim Talent received $10,000 from the Alliance for the West Leadership PAC of beleaguered Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho. Craig, of course, is the senator who pleaded guilty after being caught in a men's room sting in Colorado.
Talent, who is being touted as a potential replacement for Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, apparently had no problem with receiving money from senators who strayed sexually on both sides of the aisle, so to speak.
Federal Election Commission (FEC) records show Talent received $15,000 in 2006 from the Louisiana Reform PAC, the leadership committee of Sen. David Vitter, R-La.
Vitter, as you may recall, is the senator who admitted to being a client of the notorious D. C. Madam, and has also been linked to a New Orleans brothel.
