John Ensign
Republican John Ensign is the U.S. senator from Nevada who went from being known as an up-and-coming party leader in 2008 to notoriety as a scandal-plagued adulterer in 2009. John Ensign was a veterinarian in Las Vegas before being elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1994. In Washington he lived in what's been called the "C Street House," an apartment building of politically-involved Christians, and in Congress he championed socially conservative causes as well as western interests.
