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.

Good thing he didn't work for Lander County. Well Maybe he and another deputy would get away with it. Along with a couple others.

Give him credit, he came clean and admitted his wrong doings.

So many try to sweep their wrong doings under the rug.........then blow smoke up our "you know where's" about it.

Ensign didn't talk down to us and "try to blow smoke."

I admire that in a man,(or woman).

IMHO: If you screw up, ADMIT IT and move on.

(Come to think of it, that's a step in AA: When you are wrong, promptly admit it. It keeps drunks sober.)

You missed my point...I manned up too and told the truth..while one my superiors commit the same offense and nothing happens to them..two liars are allowed to represent the County..I am moving on but I refuse to be quiet.You can say or do what you want but I will not shut up.

Yes, the media knew about the affair.

The husband of the Senator's mistress apparently was trying to blackmail Ensign.

In this attempt he wrote a letter to, I believe it was Meghan Kelly of America's Newsroom,(a FOXNEWS morning show).

Yes, I know the details, in as much as the
information has be given.

Senator Ensign decided to "man up", as the expression has been used, and came clean.

Now, he could have done LIKE SO MANY OTHERS have choosen to do. He could have ducked and covered.

Ensign could have paid the husband the blackmail.

He didn't.

He admitted to the truth. I know, it is a totally new and strange concept in Washington D.C., the truth.

And for that, in my opinion, John Ensign deserves credit.
