What is the deal with Senator Ensign? He cheated on his wife? Don’t all politicians do that? (The answer is no, not all politicians do that). So, what is the a big deal? Let me tell you–Because Senator Ensign is a HYPOCRITE! Senator Ensign received a 100% rating from every anti-immigration group out there for his stance against immigration reform and for his opposition to giving “amnesty” to “illegals.”
While adultery is not illegal in Nevada (its not, I checked), I would daresay that if Americans were asked this question–“Do you forgive Adulterous, Cheating Senators, OR Undocumented Immigrants seeking a better life for them and their familes,” that resoundingly Americans would say–Dump the Senator and pass Immigration Reform. But wait, Americans are already saying that.
So, Senator Ensign, good for you, you did not break the law in Nevada by committing adultery and cheating on your wife. However, you have sacrificed the “moral high ground” you may have thought you once had. And while your wife is apparently is willing to forgive you, frankly, I doubt anyone else is. So, if by some magic you manage to retain your seat in the Senate, perhaps the next time you are ready to cast aspersions on an entire group of people seeking a better life for themselves, you might want to take that beam out of your own eye first!
