Our position on other people's morals has always been that we don't care who a public official -- or almost anyone else for that matter -- rolls in the hay with. What we are concerned about are the hypocrites. If you are going to sponsor a "Defense of Marriage Act" that aims to conform other people's marriages to a certain standard of acceptability, it would seem like a simple matter to govern your own.
In this regard, one of the top Republican marriage experts, Sen. John Ensign of Nevada has been boinking an assistant.
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.The good Senator, until recently, had been active in the Christian evangelical 'faithful marriage' organization called "Promise Keepers."
