Sen. Vitter Won't Comment On Official's Refusal To Marry Interracial Couple

Keith Bardwell, a white justice of the peace in Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana, recently placed personal prejudice above his obligation to serve the entire public by refusing to marry an interracial couple. Now watch Republican Senator David Vitter of Louisiana slink away and refuse to comment when asked about the case:

Is Vitter afraid that, in 2009, the people of Louisiana will find it unacceptable to condemn this racial prejudice? Is he reflecting his own racism? Does Vitter, who was linked to a prostitution ring, feel that interracial marriage goes against his conservative "family values"? If you're curious, call the senator's office in Washington at 202-224-4623.
