John Ensign, U.S. Senator from Nevada (“The Whores & Gambling State”) washed up on the shores of Lake Tahoe this week. The Republican, who has confessed to a long affair where he slept with His Neighbor’s Wife (an employee and the wife of an employee), opined that he was better than former President Bill Clinton, who only got a quickie with an intern.
Mr. Ensign also told Associated Press that while Mr. Clinton had lied under oath about sex, he himself had done nothing illegal, a proposition that remains to be seen — there is an investigation into the $96,000 payment of hush money to said Neighbor’s Wife. The Bill Clinton comparison always comes up since Ensign, as a congressman, voted to impeach then-President Clinton for embarrassing the nation and causing a lack of confidence.
Senator Ensign hosted the Tahoe Summit this week, an annual event started in 1997 after that sex fiend and liar President Bill Clinton announced a long-term federal, state and local environmental effort to save the famed clarity of the lake. More than $1.4 billion has been spent on conservation efforts at Tahoe, most funded by the sale of federal land in Nevada.
Senator Ensign spoke to the Tahoe Chamber of Commerce and gave a brief interview to Associated Press on Wednesday. Disappointingly, no one asked Mr. Ensign, a former veterinarian and casino owner, what he thought about Michael Vick or the odds in the NFL.
No. 3: A Promise Keeper is committed to practicing spiritual, moral, ethical, and sexual purity.
No. 4: A Promise Keeper is committed to building strong marriages and families through love, protection and biblical values.
Senator Ensign is expected back in Washington in September, when his other ministry, the C Street Cabal, reconvenes.
