Federal investigators have issued subpoenas to the National Republican Senatorial Committee for documents relating to Sen. John Ensign's (R-Nev.) tenure there, the committee confirmed Thursday.Mwwwwahahahaha.

And here are three phrases that John Ensign never wanted to hear: wide-ranging, deadly-serious, and moving rapidly: Nevada Senator John Ensign is in the crosshairs of a Department of Justice criminal investigation.
The criminal probe stems from a romantic affair Mr. Sanctity-of-Marriage Ensign had with the wife of his key staffer and close friend, Doug Hampton, and what Ensign has done to help the Hamptons financially and sexually.
The Justice Department came to Las Vegas to interview several prominent business and political figures in what appears to be a wide-ranging and deadly-serious criminal probe.
