And why are we allowing Senator Ensign to vote on healthcare reform?

I guess I really don’t care who senators bang, even if it is not their wives Flashbacks of a Fool movie download RoboCop 3 movie download . Heck I don’t care if they pay hush money (cough . . . Alexander Hamilton . . . cough) or promise jobs in attempt at a coverup. But what bugs me is we let these snakes vote on one of the most important legislative issues of our time;

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department and the Senate Ethics Committee are expected to conduct preliminary inquiries into whether Senator John Ensign violated federal law or ethics rules as part of an effort to conceal an affair with the wife of an aide, current and former officials said Friday.

The inquiries will most likely examine whether Mr. Ensign, a Nevada Republican, or Douglas Hampton, his one-time administrative assistant, broke the law after Mr. Hampton, immediately upon leaving his Congressional job last year, began to lobby Mr. Ensign’s office. Mr. Hampton, as a senior aide, was subject to a one-year lobbying ban, lawyers who specialize in ethics law said.

How can we guarantee Senator Ensign’s vote on healthcare reform was genuine when he can’t even bother to follow one of the simplest ethics rules in the senate; DON’T WORK AS A LOBBYIST FOR AT LEAST A YEAR.

…and there’s the problem with our system of government:

DON’T WORK AS A LOBBYIST FOR AT LEAST A YEAR.

when it should be:

IF YOU TAKE A GOVERNMENT JOB YOU CAN NEVER WORK AS A LOBBYIST.

He is a flaming hypocrite. He complained about Clinton but then he has an affair for a year or more, gives the mistress a raise and promotion while she works for him, hires her 19 yr. old son, gets her husband a job before and after Ensign was outed. His parents give the mistress and husband $96k payoff. And Sen. Coburn negotiates the payoff and then says he counciled Ensign as a dr. and a deacon. Coburn is an OBGYN, so is there something more about Ensign we all need to know? Maybe now he is waiting for a hand dr. from SD.

By the same token, why should we let Ted Kennedy’s replacement vote on it? Especially since they are re-stacking the deck in MA just to put Kirk in.

REAL AMERICANS like senator Ensign should be allowed to spread their seed wherever it can be received.
We must keep up a steady birth rate of white, Christian, conservative, REAL AMERICAN kids, even if they are bastards.
I, for one, am willing to chip in for this PATRIOT’s viagra prescription.

Senator Coburn should also be barred, from voting on health care and from the senate for he aided a abetted Senator Ensign.

And what was Sen Thune’s role in the “Family” on C Street?

Why is Charlie Rangel allowed to write tax laws?
And notice that Republicans aren’t exactlhy defending Ensign, while Democrats drag their feet regarding Rangel.
