CREW: Hampton Pays While Ensign Walks


March 24, 2011- In response to the news of the Department of Justice filing charges against Doug Hampton, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) Executive Director Melanie Sloan issued the following statement:

“It is an outrage that the Justice Department would choose to only prosecute Doug Hampton and not his well documented co-conspirator Senator John Ensign.  The DOJ has wiped away any doubt that you really can get away with almost anything as long as you happen to be a high-ranking government official.  The message from the DOJ is clear: if you work for the government, and you know your boss is engaged in wrongdoing, keep your mouth shut.

It is incumbent on the Senate Ethics Committee to show the courage that the Department of Justice so clearly lacks.  Their investigation must continue. Senator Ensign should be expelled from the United States Senate.”
