“Senator John Ensign of Nevada resigned his position as the fourth-ranking Republican leader in the Senate on Wednesday after publicly confessing to an extramarital affair with a former staff member,” according to the New York Times.

Ensign was supposed to be a rising star in the GOP.  Now he is done.  And to make matters worse, he had an affair with a married woman whose husband worked for him.  She did too.  And so did her son!

“The 19-year-old son of a woman who reportedly had an affair with Nevada Sen. John Ensign was being paid by the National Republican Senatorial Committee during the relationship, federal election records show,” according to the L.A. Times.

Oh my.  And Ensign was apparently an ultra-conservative Talibani type Republican.  He was fervently against gay marriage.  But he apparently was okay with cheating on his wife and sleeping with his employee’s wife.  Aye Dios!

Can the GOP survive any more hits?  How sad as we need a party that can stand up to Obama – but the Republican Party has become a complete joke.
