Another Republican caught up in scandal.
Senator John Ensign, Republican of Nevada, on Tuesday admitted that he had an extramarital affair with a member of his campaign staff.
Mr. Ensign led the Republicans’ campaign efforts in 2008 and had been contemplating a run for president in 2012.
An aide said the consensual affair took place between December 2007 and August 2008, and that the woman worked for both Mr. Ensign’s campaign operation, Ensign for Senate, as well as a conservative political action committee, Battleborn PAC, from December 2006 to May 2008. Mr. Ensign is honorary chairman of the PAC. The woman’s husband was a member of Mr. Ensign’s official Senate staff.
Geez. Some pal. I don’t think I’d trust this guy to carry-out the garbage.
