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.

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