OK, we were wrong on Vitter (R-Canal Street Brothel) and the diapers. But he took the used condoms with him after "encounters"?!

New Orleans Advocate:

Ex-prostitute tells Hustler of Vitter encounters
Vitter used condoms and engaged in straight sex, “no weird fetishes or anything like that,” [Wendy] Ellis says in the magazine.
