Not So Moral Majority,again

Say it isn't so, another one of the Moral Majority is found unfaithful. Senator John "Defender of Marriage" Ensign (R-NV), who has (or maybe it should be had) a 100% rating from the Christian Coalition, has admitted to an extramarital affair with a campaign staffer. It also looks like the husband of the staffer (unnamed staffer) was looking to blackmail the senator. I guess we can add him to the ranks of former Sen. Craig, Sen. McCain, Rev. Haggard oh and so the conservatives don't think I'm beating them up to much let me add Former President Clinton and Sen.Edwards.
Besides the last, why is it they fear LGBT couples having the right to marry? I mean if this is how they define marriage by cheating and sneaking around do we really want it? I feel the commitment that Ryan I have is full of love and caring for each other. But they feel that they can judge us, well they really need to look at the stain glass windows in their homes because there is a ton of broken glass on the floor. What a bunch of hypocritical putzes I guess they will be joining us in hell; it should be a one great dance party, just watch out for Sen. Craig when you use the bathroom. Sorry Senator Ensign I guess this will change your plans in 2014.
Enough Said.

Senator Says He Had Affair With an Aide
By DAVID M. HERSZENHORN

WASHINGTON — Senator John Ensign, Republican of Nevada, admitted Tuesday that he had an extramarital affair with a member of his campaign staff.

Mr. Ensign led the Republicans’ campaign efforts in 2008 and had recently visited Iowa, apparently contemplating a run for president in 2012.

An aide said that the consensual affair took place between December 2007 and August 2008, and that the woman worked for Mr. Ensign’s campaign operation, Ensign for Senate, as well as for 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. Neither has worked for the senator since May 2008, the aide said.

Mr. Ensign, 51, is married and has three children. He and his wife, Darlene, were active for a time in Promise Keepers, a Christian evangelical ministry that promotes strong families and marriages.

In a statement released by his office in Washington, Mr. Ensign said: “I take full responsibility for my actions. I know that I have deeply hurt and disappointed my wife, my children, my family, my friends, my staff and the people of Nevada who believed in me not just as a legislator but as a person. I deeply regret and am very sorry for my actions.”

Mr. Ensign’s wife also issued a statement, affirming her commitment to her husband: “Since we found out last year, we have worked through the situation, and we have come to a reconciliation. This has been difficult on both families. With the help of our family and close friends, our marriage has become stronger. I love my husband.”

The Democratic leader in the Senate, Harry Reid, who is Nevada’s senior senator, issued a statement through a spokesman, Jon Summers, saying: “This is a very personal matter. Senator Reid’s thoughts are with Senator Ensign and his family as they go through this difficult time.”
