Sen. John Ensign apologized to his Republican colleagues today for having an extramarital affair or maybe for dragging the GOP into another sex scandal. Anyway, joined by our very own Bob Corker, the senators said they forgive Ensign and started working on his public rehabilitation. According to Politico, Corker has no qualms with the way Ensign has handled the whole affair (heh):
"This was not a flippant thing that he did. From what I have seen, here in Washington is I think that he's been very stand-up about it. Look he made a mistake, he said he made a mistake, and is very apologetic for that - at many levels, at every appropriate level."
A stand-up guy? After meeting with the senators, Ensign ducked down a back stairwell to avoid reporters. More from Corker from the Huffington Post:
"I think he plans to be a very good senator from Nevada," Corker said. "All I can say for sure is that it was very, very sincere, very heartfelt and very well received in our caucus. I just appreciate the way he was today, and I think everybody in our caucus does." There were no tears from Ensign, Corker said, but "he was obviously somber and serious. And this was not a flippant thing that he did." Though Ensign didn't take any questions from GOP colleagues, Corker said, "He answered the questions I had. Today he did what he needed to do with us."
