Tom Coburnt

From THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR:

The sordid tale of former Sen. John Ensign (R) of Nevada is casting its dark ethical – and perhaps legal – shadow wider and wider in Washington.

Aside from the likelihood that Ensign will face criminal charges, recent revelations don’t paint a very good picture of Sen. Tom Coburn, former senator and presidential candidate Rick Santorum, nor the Justice Department.

Welcome to the Hypocrisy Club, Senator!

From THINK PROGRESS:

[…] Sen. John Ensign (R-NV), a member of GOP leadership and a potential candidate for president in 2012, [held] a press conference […] in which he [acknowledged] having an extramarital affair “with a campaign staffer who was married to an employee in Ensign’s Senate office.” Ensign flew back to Las Vegas to make the public announcement.

Ummm, Senator? In this case, what happens in Vegas ain’t gonna stay in Vegas!

Reversal on Fortune

From The New York Times:

The Democratic National Committee is planning to file suit against the Federal Election Commission Monday in an effort to compel it to investigate Senator John McCain’s withdrawal from the public financing system for the primary.

The lawsuit, which is to be filed in United States District Court in Washington, is largely a procedural move, unlikely to change anything in the dispute in the immediate future. The D.N.C. filed a complaint with the commission in February, challenging Mr. McCain’s right to pull out of public financing.

No wonder he’s smiling. Why follow the law if you know you can get away with breaking it?
