GOP Senator John Ensign to resign over affair with aide

The headline:  Sen. John Ensign to resign from Congress

The link:  http://content.usatoday.com/communities/onpolitics/post/2011/04/john-ensign-senate-resign-/1?csp=hf&loc=interstitialskip

The summary:  Republican Senator John Ensign of Nevada handed in his resignation over an affair he had with a former aide.

The reaction:  Ensign was once rising up the ranks of the GOP but that is clearly no longer the case.  A Senate Ethics Committee is going to look into whether or not he violated any rules with the affair.

I don’t think I’ll ever understand why a person in a high profile position like this would risk everything by having an affair.  It’s a high publicity mistake he’s made and it’ll ultimately cost him his career.
