NRSC paid son of woman in Ensign affair
Politico ^ | 6/17/09 | John Breshnahan

The son of the couple at the center of the sex scandal that has engulfed Sen. John Ensign was being paid by National Republican Senatorial Committee in 2008 at the same time his mother was having an affair with the Nevada Republican.

Both Doug and Cynthia Hampton were already working in senior positions for Ensign when their son Brandon Hampton was hired to do “research policy consulting” for the NRSC in March 2008.

The younger Hampton, 19, was paid $5,400 before he left the Ensign office in August last year, Federal Election Commission records show.

That means during March and April 2008, three members of the Hampton family were working for Ensign. Both Doug and Cynthia Hampton stopped working for Ensign at the end of April 2008.

After ignoring all the Democrat scandals the media has decided that they can now report one.

Yup. They didn’t let the National Enquirer have the sole scoop on this one.

You don't think corrupt politicians are a problem? Ensign needs to go away -- from the party leadership and from the Senate.

Sort of a financial ménage à trois.

I completely disagree, he made a mistake, just like my father did 26 years ago. My parents reconciled and have been together ever since.

Was your father an elected official paid by TAXPAYERS??

Glad your mom and dad worked it out...takes a VERY forgiving spouse.....not saying his wife should divorce him but he should resign his Senate seat.

Won't politicians on the Pubbie side learn that they are not Democrats???
