It really is hard to keep your pants on in Nevada

Especially when you're a US senator...

Apparently Mr. John Ensign (R-NV) cannot keep his hands out of the staffer cookie jar. In an interview with the Associated Press, Ensign reveals that he had an affair with a member of his campaign staff from December 2007 to August 2008. The statement says "I deeply regret and am very sorry for my actions."

I can understand regret for a drunken evening celebrating a victory, but come on man! This continued for 8 months... hardly a case of just the tip, just for a second, just to see how it feels.

According to his website, Ensign "spends his work week in Washington D.C. and travels home to visit his family Darlene, Trevor, Siena and Michael on the weekends."

Unless, of course, it is campaign season.

We understand that scandals of this sort have happened to members of the Democratic party as well, but it is just too damn easy to pass up another GOP member doing something to bring more bad press to his party.
