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.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
