David "The Diaper" Vitter at it again! Adds another anti-registrant amendment to another spending bill

Earlier this year, David Vitter sought to ban registrants from the Food Stamp program through a farm bill amendment. Now, Vitter is injecting his self-loathing into HUD. I know that registrants with a lifetime reporting requirement is already banned from HUD, but apparently Vitter wants that rule extended to all registered citizens.

Now, I don't think registrants CAN even get housing assistance from HUD. But I wonder why he feels the need to do this? Does his diaper need changing again?

eAdvocate pointed out that Vitter moved to avoid having the bill read. Why is he embarassed to have the amendment read?

SA 1744. Mr. VITTER submitted an amendment intended to be proposed by him to the bill S. 1243, making appropriations for the Departments of Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development, and related agencies for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2014, and for other purposes; as follows:

At the appropriate place, insert the following:

Sec. __X. None of the funds made available under this Act shall be used to provide housing assistance benefits for an individual who is convicted of aggravated sexual abuse under section 2241 of title 18, United States Code, murder under section 1111 of title 18, United States Code, an offense under chapter 110 of title 18, United States Code, or any other Federal or State offense involving sexual assault, as defined in 40002(a) of the Violence Against Women Act of 1994 (42 U.S.C. 13925(a))
