John Ensign’s ‘family values’

So Sen. John Ensign’s (R-Nev.) parents paid some  $96,000 to his mistress (see this Washington Post story).

It sure is nice to see family members helping each other out in times of crisis.

Is this what Ensign, a leading “defense of marriage” advocate who called on Bill Clinton to resign in 1998 because of his relationship with Monica Lewinsky, means by “family values?”
