Ensign's religious intervention

Posted By on Fri, Jul 10, 2009 at 12:17 PM

U.S. Sen. John Ensign won't be president. Thank goodness. But this story is too rich not to pass along. It is about a reported intervention by a secretive religious group, including Sen. Tom Coburn, to get Ensign to quit his philandering ways. They even accompanied him to a Fed Ex drop with a letter breaking things off with his mistress. As soon as Ensign shook loose from his faithful keepers, however, he called his girlfriend to tell her to ignore the letter and then shacked up with her again.
