Another Gift Seat From the GOP?

November 17, 2010

John, his wife, his mistress, his employee and cuckold

Nevada Sen. John Ensign said Tuesday he has been planning to run for reelection “for a long time,” suggesting that the ongoing fallout of his extramarital affair won’t doom him politically.

The Senate Select Committee on Ethics is investigating whether Ensign broke Senate rules in allegedly attempting to help the lobbying career of Hampton’s husband, Doug, after he learned of the affair. At the same time, the Justice Department has launched a criminal probe into whether the senator’s actions violated federal law in trying to cover up the affair.

Depending on the finding, the ethics panel could issue a range of sanctions, including potentially expulsion from the Senate, while the Justice Department could issue a criminal indictment. Either one of those actions could certainly end his political career.

  1. I like Darlene’s hair and dress. People today don’t care about what these politicians say or do. Look at Rengel.. he just got a slap on the wrist. His lifestyle will remain the same.
