Christopher Tidmore, Candidate

"Only politicians could politicize the recovery from the greatest natural disaster in the history of the United States. Nothing is getting done because people are trying to either assess blame or find political gain."

Sadow: Vitter Story Boosts Tidmore's Credentials for Legislature

Dr. Jeffrey Sadow, Associate Professor of Political Science at Louisiana State University Shreveport said that Vitter Revelations "may serve to attenuate the potential of one political career, and help to launch another one," namely Christopher Tidmore, candidate for District 82.

"How this will affect his [Vitter's] political career is that it imposes a ceiling to it. One possible motivation for Vitter to endorse moderate (mainly based on social issues) former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani for the 2008 GOP presidential nomination was by doing so early, Giuliani if he could win the nomination might well pick the staunch conservative Vitter as his vice presidential running mate. That cannot happen now," Sadow said.

"The effects of the admission ripple further, however. The reporter most responsible for breaking the story five years ago about Vitter's infidelity, Christopher Tidmore, is a candidate for the House 82nd District in fall state elections. This incident, given the past accusation, boosts Tidmore’s credentials as a steadfast potential legislator with a willingness to expose seeming unethical behavior that cannot help but impress voters."

"Thus, the affair may serve to attenuate the potential of one political career, and help to launch another one," the LSU Professor concluded.
