Pretty good analogy here, re Vitter.

Ross Douthat:
"If a politician were caught with his name on the 'call list' of a prominent drug dealer, he wouldn't be able to wriggle out of it by admitting to a 'serious sin' and leaving it at that. And unless prominent Republicans are prepared to join Matt in supporting the repeal of laws banning prostitution - which I certainly hope they aren't - then they shouldn't be backing Vitter's 'it's a private matter' line. It isn't. It's a crime."

The above-mentioned Matt seems to be arguing for the legalization of drugs and prostitution.
Drugs and prostitution? No way!!!
But Amsterdam is still standing, no rain of fire there.
