John Ensign

Former Sen. John Ensign (R-Nevada) thought that money could buy love. He resigned his senate seat earlier this year after it was revealed  in 2009 that he was having an affair with the wife of one of his aides and had his parents pay the couple nearly $100,000 to help maintain their lifestyle. Ensign thought that by stepping down he would avoid an ethics investigation, but the Senate ethics panel has referred the matter to the Department of Justice.
