Report: FBI Has Contacted Witnesses On Ensign Matter | TPMMuckrakerAt issue, primarily, are two questions. Did the $96,000 payment made by Ensign's parents to the Hampton family, after both Doug and Cindy Hampton left Ensign's office, constitute a gift, which would violate campaign-finance laws? And did Ensign run afoul of lobbying restrictions by directing his staff to maintain contact with Doug Hampton after setting him up as a lobbyist?
Take the source as you will, it was one of the first that popped up when I Googled this to see if I could find the laws. But apparently the gift is part of it and then lobbying restrictions for the job he got for the other guy. Either or, I say this deserves an investigation.
