    How about just another good old fashioned Whitwash from the Good Old Boys Network! We must protect our own or the entire Ponzi Scheme might Crash and more We The Peoples could find the truth about the Big Scams that are our Governments – Worldwide! This includes all those with Shady Ethics! You all know who you are and so do many of us out here! Peace does NOT DO VIOLENCE! Blessed ARE The Peacemakers – not Warmongers for Profits!

    He's hiding behing mommy and daddy paying his way out of his troubles. The man needs to be banned from the senate. He paid spouse and child of mistress from his political funds. UNETHICAL. KICK HIM OUT.

    This reminds of king David and Uriah's wife. How can this senator call himself a member of the so called "FAMILY" at C house in DC?

    Thanks Rick, for atleast probing this crooked senator, about the allegations that stand before him. His constituents know the truth, and the American people do as well. He probably couldn't remember what he said on "record" thats why he kept referring to it. Ensign, the jokes on you.

  6. Nevada dude

    Ensign is a sleazebag hypocrite idiot with no ideas and no leadership. Nevada tanked badly and we have NO leadership from him or our Republican Governor Clown Gibbons.
    Ensign deserves to go to prison for lobbying illegalities and get run out of office for lack of ethics.

    This Republican "family values" conservative does not want to admit that he bribed his mistress's husband to keep quiet. He is also a "C Street" power-belongs-to-the chosen guy. Makes Bill Clinton look like a Sunday School teacher. But then we also have "Appalachian Trail" Sanders, newly-divorced Carl Rove, the Palin abstinence program )not), and many other holier-than-thou moral failures. How sad that people let these religious hypocrites pontificate about morals or family values.

    Ensign shouldn't worry if the investigation takes the same path as the ones looking into Murtha or Rangel. Oh, wait, right, Ensign's a republican. I'm sure then that the investigation will take a week and he'll be censured, if not impeached.

    How is that old Charlie Rangle investigation going anyway? Everyone knows politicians Republicans or Democrats have no ethics, morals or care for the concerns of the American citizenry they represent. They work for the Special Interest lobbyists (lawyers) that contribute, contribute and contribute to our demise.

  13. Ensign is Stonewalling

    Ensign doesn't have to answer any questions about those silly ethics issues. The public doesn't care about ethics anymore. Ensign still has a bright future in the GOP leadership despite his youthful indiscretion. I haven't heard anyone calling for him to resign or be censured in any way. He is running for re-election in 2012 and so far is not facing any challengers. It looks like Ensign learned his manners from Joe Wilson.

    Where are the conservative blogs , talk radio and Fox News report that their leader Rush Limbaugh is spending $10,000/ Night in a hotel in Hawaii . Rush repent because your hatred and bigotry against the minorities in this country is very poisonous.
    If you recover, stay out of the race baiting.
