The guy not only disregarded his marriage, he disregarded the marriage of another couple. That's two different marriages that one person **** all over.
I personally don't care about his personal decisions, but if he's going to represent a party that wishes to "preserve the sanctity of marriage" then he needs to hold up his end of the bargain. Two gay guys getting married and minding their own business is somehow much more of a problem than a married guy who sleeps with another woman who is also married?
So it looks like Ensign was having an affair with this woman BEFORE he was separated from his wife--from December 2007 through March 2008.
According to an official timeline Ensign's staff provided Tuesday, his affair began in December 2007 and continued until last August. John and Darlene Ensign were separated from April to July last year, according to his office.

Sounds to me like he decided not to pay extortion to the staffer he had sex with.
