'D.C. Madam' Finally Releases Phone List -- U.S. Senator Is On It

By: Sen. David Vitter, R-La., apologized Monday night for ''a very serious sin in my past'' after his telephone number appeared among those associated with an escort service operated by the so-called ''D.C. Madam.''

Vitter's spokesman, Joel Digrado, confirmed the statement in an e-mail sent to The Associated Press.

''This was a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible,'' Vitter said in the statement. ''Several years ago, I asked for and received forgiveness from God and my wife in confession and marriage counseling. Out of respect for my family, I will keep my discussion of the matter there -- with God and them. But I certainly offer my deep and sincere apologies to all I have disappointed and let down in any way.''
