Government Scandal Wrap-Up Summer 2009
The GovCentral Humor Squad
September 17, 2009
Why is it that white male politicians seem to corner the market on cheating on their wives while espousing family values? Sen. John Ensign (R-NV) is another example of thinking with out consulting his brain. Ensign had an affair with a former campaign staffer by the name of Cynthia Hampton. His parent’s decided to offer a bribe to keep quiet to the tune of $96,000. Many people say that this ruins Ensign’s chances of running for President in 2012. Other people say: “Ensign was a contender?!?!”
Sex and Money always go well, but the Sanford chronicles was a brighter, shinier object.
