Sen. David Vitter Returns to Work on Capitol Hill

U.S. Senator David Vitter U.S. Senator David Vitter

Senator David Vitter returned to Capitol Hill, Tuesday, dodging camera crews and loads of questions about his involvement in a sex scandal. He did make a quick comment to reporters.

Vitter says, "As you all know, my wife and I, Wendy, made some straightforward comments about this. I look forward today to being back to work and focusing on Louisiana issues. Thank you."

Vitter didn't answer any questions as reporters followed him down the hallway.

Vitter has acknowledged a "serious sin" after his Washington telephone number was found among those called several years ago by an escort service that prosecutors say was a prostitution ring.

Vitter and his wife, Wendy, told reporters Monday that their marriage is stronger than it's ever been and the senator plans to continue his political career.

Vitter secretly left Washington eight evenings ago after suddenly leaving the floor of the Senate just before an e-mailed statement confirmed his congressional liaisons with a D.C. call girl operation.
