It’s comeback week for America’s political johns. First, former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer got himself a column at Slate. Now, on the other side of the aisle, it seems that Louisiana Republican Sen. David Vitter has started to line up support for a run at a second term in 2010. (Hat-tip to Greg Sargent at TPM Election Central.)
Vitter, you’ll recall, is the senator who admitted to having “a very serious sin in my past” when the trail of the D.C. madam scandal started to lead back to him. All indications are that he escaped the scandal relatively unscathed, with his political career intact, and that he's got a good shot at reelection.
