What is it with poilticians not being able to keep it in their pants?

Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) acknowledged Tuesday that he had “violated the vows” of marriage by having an affair with a campaign staffer.
The admission — made in a televised appearance in Las Vegas — shocked Ensign’s Senate colleagues and delivered a serious blow to any hopes he might have had of seeking the GOP presidential nomination in 2012.

  • Power tripping leads to feeling above it all....including marriage vows. Men in high powered positions have a higher propensity to cheat...but they don't own it..just watch the trash on cheaters and Maury! LOL

    This is another of the moral police though that makes it ironic!! He called Larry Craig a disgrace and called for Clinton to resign...hmm, wonder where he stands now on that issue??
