Nevada Sen. John Ensign, who admitted to an affair with his best friend's wife earlier this year, has moved out of C Street House, a residence shared by a half-dozen Christian politicians, the Las Vegas Sun reports
. The house became a hub of scandal involving extramarital affairs carried on by at least two residents -- Ensign and Rep. Chip Pickering. South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford also sought counsel at C Street House about his affair with a woman from Argentina.
Ensign is facing examination by the Senate Ethics Committee and may soon be the subject of a Justice Department inquiry. Despite reports
that Ensign used his influence to pressure various parties to keep quiet about his affair, Ensign has maintained that he did nothing legally wrong
and has promised to participate in any investigations.
Ensign chose to leave the residence because of his association with scandal, and the Sun
reported that he left without pressure from any of his colleagues. He moved to C Street House in 1995 after being elected to Congress.
