    Paper: GOP senator likely to be indicted | Raw Story

    Two former federal prosecutors in the past two weeks have said there is enough evidence to indict Ensign. “Just based on what the senator has said himself and what Mr. (Doug) Hampton has said … under the federal standard of probable cause, there’s enough to indict the senator now,” ex-prosecutor Stan Hunterton, a well-respected local attorney, said March 19 on “Face to Face.”

    He will be defended on some nonsense, maybe there is no "you tube video".. the standard of right and wrong for some..

    True, but then that will be debunked on the Colbert Report:singing:

    Have fun with John Edwards, dirtbag.

    I know people aren't hip on biblical stuff, but the verse about there being no way to satiate a cuckolded husband's anger comes to mind here. I guess $96K bought him some time, but not enough. Good riddance if he goes.

    This smells fishy, I am sure it has nothing to do with Harry Reid trying to get reelected.:rolleyes:

    He is not opposing Reid..

    If he committed a wrong should seal the indictment until December.. what he did sounds pretty egregious..

    Predictable.. change the subject.. minimize what Ensign did..

    I said good riddance to Ensign, what do you want?


    I am pointing out the double standard, the left (you being an exception) never condemn their criminals.

    A little more detail on Ensign... from a local paper, no idea if it has an affiliation.. difficult to synopsize as it is longer than most..

    Not entirely true is it? I thought Edwards got some criticism from the left, wouldn't you agree?

    Corrupt politicians aren't/shouldn't be a partisan issue.

    The quoted section is pretty misleading, and I don't know whether the rest is much better. There is one other criterion to getting in: The Family is basically a group of people who identify themselves with using the state to promote a Christian agenda. So I'm not so sure "anybody with power or money is in" is a fair summary statement (paraphrasing there.)

    Posted the article to show the depth and magnitude of the issue, and how Ensign has lost touch with the "people" who elected him..

    Edwards was universally condemned by both sides of the aisle, as was Massa and anyone else who lived a lie.. some do not want to see this, they can review the previous posts..

    Do not ever recall anyone who defended Edwards...

    No argument there; just a nitpick. The C Street house where lots of these theoletches reside is actually listed as a church.
