I wonder if the good people of CNN will give this as much coverage as rangel and waters. No? I thought not.

Sex, fear, hate and bigotry are the commonality of the GOP. They will back Corporate interests to the hilt, but still state that they are the Party of American and Family Values. Is there more hypocracy than this?

Of course. In the same week we have two Democrats being investigated, this numbskull gets his complaint dismissed. Another sign that the Republicans are given free reign every time they are in power. I know they aren't in power yet, but they soon will be.

Don't kid yourself. They are in power. They have the SCOTUS sewn up. They have influence in many, many areas. That's all it takes to have power.

Yes, as far as SCOTUS and other areas. I'm afraid that they will have official control in 2012. I don't see the Dems or Obama doing enough to change anything before 2012. If they don't the country will go back to full Republican control.

With your declaration of Republicans being given a free pass, you've given voice to what every Democrat has known for years.
I haven't seen any mention that all of the current, active Ethics Commitee probes focus only on black lawmakers. In addition to Maxine Waters, the House Ethics Committee also known as the Office of Congressional Ethics (OEC) is investigating six additional black lawmakers, all of whom are members of the Congressional Black Congress. All six are highly critical of the misdeeds of the GOP and on a separate note are highly regarded in the black community, locally and nationally.
Of the 10 man committee, only one member is black, 5 are Democrats and 5 are pubes.
A list of approximately three dozen lawmakers who are under scrutiny by the OEC contains a substantial number of white lawmakers.
As of November 4th, "not a single white lawmaker is currently the subject of a full-scale ethics probe." (Politico)

I haven't been paying a great deal of attention until recently...well, the last two years anyway. It is appalling that this type of thing is going on and it isn't talked about more. So many Republicans and Teabaggers will say that race has nothing to do with the criticism of Obama. I think we all know that these are just words.

This is a crock of you know what .Ensign as well as Colburn should be indicted, Sen.Coburn was t5he one who arranged the settlement,the good doctors bedside manner helped Ensign.
04:41 PM on 11/21/2010
Why of course Ensign will run again despite his utter corruption in office.  Of course there will be some total fools who will vote for him.  THIS IS WHY CROOKS, LIARS, PERVERTS, COWARDS, ETC. DO GET INTO AND STAY IN THE US SENATE,  NEVADANS MAY WAKE UP ONE OF THESE DAYS AND DEMAND DECENT PEOPLE IN THEIR ELECTIVE OFICES.  JOUHN ENSIGN NEEDS TO GO TO JAIL AND NOT RETURN TO FLEECE US AGAIN.

A "gift". It seems to me that the IRS should be looking into the tax returns as see if this 'gift" was declared as income. Let's see... taxes on a $96,000 gift should be about $30,000.

A $96,000 payoff by his parents - OMG! And there is no ethics violations? Another defeat for honor and ethics in government - very sad.

This is incredible. As far as I'm concerned he should be outfitted in an orange jump suit and put on an interstate work detail of picking up trash.

No different then Clinton running after the Jennifer Flowers episode, John Edwards running around on his cancer-stricken wife, Chapaquidick, Gary Studds, Barney Frank, and Mark Foley with their page boys, Gingrich, Gary Condit, and so on and so on. Sure he can run.

Notice all democrats doesn't balance out the list with the known Republican scandals.
Which I think they are in the lead at the moment.
Sex scandals in politics is as old as David and Bathsheba.
I am waiting for the first one with a political woman at the center of the scandal.

It was their money, not the governments, and they can make gifts to whoever they want.

You're right, gifts to the person who is charging you with sexual harassment has nothing to do with a payoff. I bet his parents have NEVER given another $24,000 gift to ANYONE. Obviously, it was a gift, in your mind, so that you don't have to confront the truth.

If there is an indictment and a charge of bribery let me know right away. In the meantime, we'll go with the presumption of innocence. I mean unless you have some legal evidence.
04:46 PM on 11/21/2010
Is that right, heckmepitus?  So, bribery is ok if you use YOUR money to pay the bribe?  You see, it is folk like heckmepitus who make the John Ensigns possible to damage the rest of us.  Hopefully there will be fewer of them as time goes on, and the crimes by trash like Ensign are fewer in number.

Why is heckmepitus getting so agitated? Did his well paid GOP pube not arrive in time to kill the remaining charges that still stand against Ensign?

He is just another serial adulterer like gingrich. The repubs love all of them.

They have their own private men's club-"C Street House". Rachel Maddow reported on this residence extensively especially the large number of adulterers housed there.
The residents, Ensign being just one, are currently under investigation by CREW for violating the Congressional gifts rules protocol.

They've got a nice setup in the C Street Clubhouse. They pay a below-market rent and can chase skirt all night long on their government expense account.

NO, grf67, Ensign is MORE than a " serial adulterer ".  He is a criminal who has repeatedly violated the laws of man and of God.
