The thing with Ensign is, he has requested others who had performed similar acts to resign. Supposedly his membership in some Christian-based chastity-preaching group gave him an appropriate pulpit from which to preach and judge. Now that the shoe is on the other foot...........

He deserves every bit of the roasting he is about to get

That group would be Promise Keepers. Guess he didn't do such a hot job at that.

Interns for embattled Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) are apparently jumping ship in the wake of his acknowledgment that he had an affair with a former staffer.


Where will they wind up?

What's funny, is I never heard anything about Diaper Dave's staff. (huh huh, I said Dave's staff)

So does that mean banging a staffer outside marriage is worse than banging some prosty chick (or in Ted Haggard's case, some prosty dude) ?

I beseech our board Republicans to enlighten us as to the etiquette.

Again, they are called out for their hypocricy. Yet, since behavior like this for Dems is accepted, they are not hypocritical, they are just doing what they do.

Accepted? You really believe that? Maybe the fact that gays exist is accepted. McGreevy got quite a bit of heat for what he did. But he came out as gay, he didn't try to cure the gay away or deny what happened. He got caught and owned up to it.

If McGreevy had been involved in political fights to keep gay marriage illegal or heading up a evangelical fidelity club or whatever I think that would be relevant to point out when examining what he did.

Jon Edwards cheated on a wife with cancer, that is 100x's personally more fvcked up than what this guy did and I don't think I've heard too many people give him a pass on this.

McGreevey "came out" because he was a poor governor making poor decisions.

That was his way of deflectin his "Macheavellian" escapades.

And McGreevey being gay was the worst kept secret in the State.

You don't think it was the sexual harassment suit that was threatened to be filed against him by a guy?

So his coming out was only to distract people from his poor governing and give him an excuse to step down? Really? He would humiliate the his wife, kids, entire family, staff, state and a bunch of other people because he was making poor governing decisions?

Have you read about he and his wife's court cases? He only cares about himself.

I can believe that he is selfish. But I find it hard to believe he was looking for a way to ditch the job, and said to himself, "Oh I know a way out, I'll just tell everyone I've been banging dudes"

That was the prevailing opinion at the time.
