Questions raised over aid to ex-employees who could hurt Senator's career
LAS VEGAS - Sen. John Ensign helped his mistress's husband get two jobs during the time the rising Republican senator acknowledges carrying on an extramarital affair, an Ensign spokesman said Thursday.
Ensign admitted having a nine-month affair with Doug Hampton's wife, Cindy, who also worked for the senator. Ensign's office has said that both Cindy and Doug Hampton left their jobs in May 2008, and the affair ended in August 2008.
Editor Rozek’s Notes: Strange! I’ve never heard of a politician having an affair before. I’m shocked! Remember what they say: “Keep your friends close. Keep your enemies closer!” …wait…is that what they say or is it “Get your mistress’ husband a job so you won’t have to pay for the hotel room.” …hmm…can’t remember ??
