Independent Tea Party candidate challenges David Vitter to a cage wrestling match to "restore the honor of Louisiana"

Take it away, The Lafayette Advertiser:

Independent U.S. Senate candidate Mike Spears this afternoon challenged incumbent Sen. David Vitter to a mixed martial arts cage match next month in Lafayette.

Spears issued the challenge at a press conference to announce USA-MMAS “Return of the Champions” on Oct. 16 at the Cajundome.

Citing the 2007 scandal in which Vitter was linked to a Washington D.C. prostitution ring, Spears billed the bout as a modern-day duel.

“Sen. Vitter’s behavior – his admission to breaking the law in 2007 – has insulted the honor of Louisiana and the Louisiana Senate seat,” Spears said.

“I’m in this race, and this fight, to restore the honor of Louisiana and of the nation as well.”

Gambit profiled Spears back in April, writing about his side business as "The Dog Designer," creating custom canine couture in the five-figure range for Yorkies and other pocket pooches. (The website for the side business, Molle Tache, has been disabled in the meantime.) Spears, who owns a successful Internet development company in Lafayette, is obviously a man of many talents, though the subject of cage wrestling never came up during the Gambit interview.
