Nevada GOP Senator John Ensign announced Monday that he will not run for reelection in 2010. Ensign allegedly got his casino owner parents to pay $96,000 to a former staffer and set him up as a lobbyist after Ensign had an affair with the guy’s wife. He’s facing huge legal bills and an investigation into whether he broke any ethics rules.
- So first we all have to pretend that the government has ethics rules, then we can figure out if he broke any of them.
- He grew up in a Casino… I think it was a safe bet he’d end up gambling with his future.
- In his defense, he thought the woman he had the affair with was a “slut machine”.
