John Ensign, family values man finally resigns

Disgraced Senator John Ensign resigned last April from the senate.  This is the Senator from Nevada that had an affair with the wife of his chief of staff in D.C. two years ago.  He came under fire for a 96,000 dollar check that his parents wrote to his former chief of staff.  Was the check severance pay, hush money or a gift as his parents were saying.  The disgraced senator resigned exactly one day before he was due to testify before the senate ethic committee regarding the check.  Surprisingly, the committee stated its intent to pursue the investigation even after Senator Ensign's resignation. 

Here are some famous Senator John Ensign, family values spokesman quotes.

"I have never felt like I broke any laws or ethics rules."

“I believe that marriage should be defined as that between one man and one woman. You want to do what is ideal for children and all of the studies show that the ideal for children is to be in a household with a father and a mother.”  That is a complete lie.  Almost all studies show their is no difference in Hetero or Gay households with children.  See the American Psychology Association for a wealth of relevant studies.  Please note the APA doesn't have any studies on  households with a father, mother and mistress. 

He also publicly urged President Clinton to resign after his Monica Lowinsky affair saying: "he has no credibility left."  This from the senator who continued to serve 2 years after his affair became public knowledge. 

My apologies for the poor photograph.  Most of the .gov photos have been deleted.  But I did find this thumbnail from the Budget Committee.  Don't you feel better knowing Senator John Ensign has been working on our budget?
