As does every single Liberal democrat out there, we know that as a fact. They wear infidelity and deviance proud and loud as a badge of honor. But when the GOP does the same thing they're all just peas in a pod in a different party.
Everybody out here has their own personal foibles and weaknesses to contend with, but when they hold themselves above everyone else by claiming their "family values" as a strength and reason for trust, they always end up being the one's that don't practice what they preach.
Just like the Gingrich's (who I like politically), the Clinton's and Edwards' out there, who fall on the same sword time after time, while the best and cleanest American's shun politics, all because of the scrutiny these low rent cheaters have now caused to be necessary.
They're no different than the liberals they claim to be working to unseat from power, and give us pause to wonder if we can trust anyone anymore to do the right things and turn the society back from the modern day free for all it's becoming more of each day. Politics have become such a bloodsport polluted with money that the best America has to offer wouldn't come near these jobs with a ten foot pole as most couldn't get elected.
And reports are he was pushed into admitting the affair due to Blackmail, which goes to show there's probable a truckload of other American politicians being blackmailed as we speak and why Clinton's Lewinsky affair was MORE THAN JUST SEX.
Not to mention all these other politicos who can't control their hormones that prove people of low character in office threaten ALL OUR LIVES to potential blackmail.
Including Obama who's probably being blackmailed as we speak on his birth certificate issue and that's no joke
Sources Say 'Extortion' Threat Was Behind GOP Senator's Admission of Affair With Staff Member -
"An influential Republican senator went public Tuesday about an extramarital affair he had with a member of his campaign staff -- a decision that FOX News sources say was prompted by a blackmail threat.
Two Senate Republican sources close to Sen. John Ensign of Nevada told FOX News that a former employee had asked Ensign for money in what both sources described as a case of 'extortion.'
The employee, Doug Hampton, worked in Ensign's Senate office, and his wife, Cindy Hampton, worked for Ensign's re-election campaign. Both ceased working for the senator shortly after the affair ended, the sources said, with Cindy Hampton receiving a severance package. The circumstances of Doug Hampton's departure remain unclear."
Ensign, a leading conservative mentioned as a potential presidential candidate, held a brief news conference Tuesday to come clean about the affair.
"Last year I had an affair. I violated the vows of my marriage," Ensign said. "It is the worst thing I have ever done in my life. If there was ever anything in my life that I could take back, this would be it."
Ensign spokesman Tory Mazzola said the affair took place between December 2007 and August 2008 with a campaign staffer who was married to an employee in Ensign's Senate office, however, it wasn't immediately clear whether the Hamptons were the couple in question. Ensign, 51, said he would not mention the name of the campaign aide involved in the affair. He described the woman and her husband as good friends.
"Our families were close," a weary-looking Ensign said. "That closeness put me into situations which led to my inappropriate behavior. We caused deep pain to both families and for that I am sorry."
Ensign made it clear he did not plan to resign. Ensign did not participate earlier Tuesday in a Senate vote concerning the ailing travel industry, an unusual absence considering the topic's relevance in his home state.
He took no questions from reporters at the news conference.
Ensign's wife, Darlene, also released a statement about the affair.
"Since we found out last year we have worked through the situation and we have come to a reconciliation. This has been difficult on both families. With the help of our family and close friends our marriage has become stronger," Mrs. Ensign said.
The Ensigns have three children.more
