In 1998, Hustler Magazine publisher Larry Flynt said he had evidence that U.S. Rep. Bob Livingston had strayed outside of his marriage and he was preparing to publish the information. Livingston got word that the article was pending, and on Dec. 19, 1998, he stepped down as Speaker-elect and announced he would resign from the House in May 1999. Republican David Vitter was elected to replace him. Flynt claimed July 9, 2007, to have made the link between Vitter and so-called "D.C. Madam" Deborah Jeane Palfrey.
