The paradox of David Vitter

I’m not big moralist, but is it wrong of me to think that a US Senator who ends up embroiled in a prostitution scandal should not be cruising to re-election?  Especially when he is a “family values” conservative.   It’s just kind of depressing.  Then again, maybe standards of personal conduct are just different for politicians in Louisiana.
