John Ensign report filled with bombshells
Politico ^ | 5/12/11 | MANU RAJU & JOHN BRESNAHAN

Posted on 05/13/2011 3:56:15 PM PDT by CharlyFord

“These findings are so disturbing … that had Sen. Ensign not resigned and had we been able to proceed to that adjudication, that it would have been substantial enough to warrant the consideration of expulsion,” Ethics Committee Chairwoman Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) said on the Senate floor.

Ted Kennedy killed a woman and they let him serve in the Senate for decades!! I'm seeing partisan politics here! I'm seeing a great big double standard here! After accommodating Kennedy's behavior, the Dimocrats should just shut their hypocritical mouths!!!

Who cares. I could give a care about Ensign. He is and was slime. Just glad he resigned. No need to know what will happen to him. I really could care less if he ends up in jail or ends up in luxury.

His biggest crime was that "R" behind his name.

I think the majority of Congress have little or nothing to distinguish them from criminal racketeers. The whole sump tank of these people is the most colossal embezzlement scam in human history. This one is the designated scapegoat.

Babs Boxer who was caught intentionally writing over $100,000 in bad checks to the Congressional bank in the 90’s should keep her big left wing mouth shut.

Boxer is quick to jump all over Ensign.

I know the House doesn’t bother with ethics, we saw that with Charles Rangel, and what ever happened to the Maxine Waters investigation?

The only reason Boxer is all over this is because of the R.

She is a real piece of work that c.

Boxer is so full of it. Hey, if we could tap her phone for an hour a day, we'd need only one day's worth of her tripe to prosecute her for all sorts of felonies.

She's among the last one's who should be saying something here.

Hey Babs (or should I say ma’am), I might give a damn when your buds in the House do more than slap Chahhhlie Rangel on the wrist for cheating on his taxes, using his Congressional stationery for fund raising, having multiple rent controlled apartments...

...say, whatever happened to the charges against Mad Maxine Waters for asking Bawney Fwank to give bailout cash to a bank her husband was invested in? Or are you “deeply concerned” only when a Republican is involved? Ma’am.

IMHO, Ensign should have resigned when this first came out.
I don’t care what letter you have after your name, this type of behavior is unacceptable.

I agree and even though hypocrisy is alive and well, DUH, to bring out what others did as a means of dismissing or minimizing someones behavior is, how shall I say it, very liberal like. And very childish.

The post wasn't intended to defend Ensign's behavior. The intent of the post is to highlight the Dim's hypocrisy, double standards,and partisanship.

“had we been able to proceed to that adjudication”

In other words no trial but he’s still guilty.

“And BTW we are really pissed off that he resigned before we had the chance to smear ALL REPUBS.”

Ethics Committee Chairwoman Barbara Boxer (D-CA) wouldn’t recognize “ethical behavior” if it walked up and bit her on her prodigious gluteus maximus.
