Ensign’s Scandal Dogs Him on Fundraising Trail

Now how pathetic is this? In the first three months of 2010, sitting U.S. Sen. John Ensign raised a grand total of…$50.

That’s right, fifty bucks. Not fifty thousand. Five-oh. It came from one donor, a Las Vegas retiree named Robert Donald, who made two $25 donations. And according to the TPM Muckraker today, Mr. Donald doesn’t see “any problems” with the Ensign scandals, adding, “all men are dogs, the way I look at it.

Nice.

And although Ensign the Dog only raised fifty bucks last quarter, according to Jon Ralston on Face to Face last night, the supposedly fiscal conservative senator blew $40,000 in expenditures, including several pricey meals at fancy DC restaurants. In John Ensign’s world, nothing has changed. For now.
