Boustany's wife calls prostitution claims 'false attacks'

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The wife of Republican U.S. Rep. Charles Boustany is defending him against prostitution allegations raised in a new book.

In an email to supporters Monday, Bridget Boustany described "false attacks" aimed at disrupting her husband's bid for a U.S. Senate seat in Louisiana.

Bridget Boustany doesn't use the word prostitution but talks of people who have "called his character into question."

The book "Murder in the Bayou" by Ethan Brown claims Charles Boustany was involved with prostitutes who were killed in Jefferson Davis Parish. Brown cites multiple anonymous sources. He does not allege the congressman is involved in the slayings.

Boustany's campaign denies the claims.

Boustany is one of 24 contenders on the Nov. 8 ballot in the Senate race, a seat open because Republican David Vitter isn't running for re-election.
