Ensign Prepares to Exit Senate

(Washington, DC)  —  Senator John Ensign is wrapping up details before his official resignation.  Ensign is keeping a low profile as he prepares to end a 16-year career as congressman and senator.  He refused to answer a reporter’s questions, and was seen picking up credentials identifying himself as a former lawmaker. 

Ensign’s resignation came last week, after two years of controversy over his admitted affair with the wife of a former top aide.  He’s expected to officially step down this coming Tuesday. 

Congressman Dean Heller will serve out Ensign’s term.
