No question that politicians are only human -- John Edwards is proof of that -- but when a member of the preachy 'family-values' party admits he's had an affair it's worth a little extra salt in the wound:
Republican Sen. John Ensign of Nevada has stepped down from his leadership post one day after admitting he carried on a marital affair with a woman who was on his campaign staff.
Ensign conveyed his decision in a phone call with Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, who said he had accepted the resignation.
Ensign was chairman of the Republican Policy Committee, the fourth-ranking spot in the leadership.
He remained away from the Capitol during the day, and aides declined to answer additional questions about the affair.
Republican hypocrites preach family-values and try to legislate the same into our daily lives, while they slink around doing drugs, having sex with homosexual escorts, allowing their teen-aged daughters to get pregnant, and in this case breaking their marriage vows by having adulterous affairs.
