From senators to animals: Lawmaker who fell from grace now working as a vet

Las Vegas (CNN) - One minute, he's checking a cat's mouth for gingivitis. The next, he's carefully bandaging a dog's bloody, broken nail.

This could be any hard-working veterinarian tending to ailing animals. But the embroidered name on his crisp white medical coat bears a familiar name: Dr. John Ensign.

    Hope he treats the animals better than his family and this country. I have a wonderful family, 2 rescued dogs and 1 cat I would do nothing to harm any. My love for all living things makes my heart ache for what he has done to his family and that of his campaign worker and that family.

    There is time for reflection in all of us...I hope he used his.

    He's doing honest work now. Most Republicans would have "found" Jesus and declared themselves forgiven. Old Newt is still in the mix...
