In GOP sex scandal news, attention turns back to John Ensign who has been thanking
Allah Jehovah for Mark Sanford, Sarah Palin and Michael Jackson.
Nevada Sen. John Ensign has acknowledged that his parents paid his mistress and her family $96,000 in April 2008, according to a statement made by his attorney moments ago.
It’s not a pay-off or anything like that, though.
"After the Senator told his parents about the affair, his parents decided to make the gifts out of concern for the well-being of long-time family friends during a difficult time," said Paul Coggins, counsel to Ensign.
