GOP Should Be Worried About an Ensign Indictment

Jon Ralston looks at the potential fallout -- both nationally and in Nevada -- from a possible indictment of Sen. John Ensign (R-NV).

"If Ensign gets indicted, he will become a national and state nightmare for the GOP. National Democrats will brandish him as a symbol of corruption (they may anyhow) and local Democrats will wrap the junior senator around the GOP Senate nominee's neck, especially because Sue Lowden and Danny Tarkanian foolishly have said they would welcome his support. I wouldn't even be surprised to see Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid directly go after his pal to boost his sagging fortunes"
