The former aide to Senator John Ensign will enter a plea in federal court this coming Monday.  Doug Hampton was indicted last week on charges he lobbied the Senate despite a federal “cooling off” period of one year.

A judge ruled hampton was indigent, and assigned him a public defender.  Hampton resigned after learning Ensign was having an affair with his wife.  Ensign remains under investigation by a Senate committee, and won’t seek a third term in 2012.
