Just how bad does a Republican sex scandal have to get before one of these guys resigns? Rachel Maddow fills us in with the latest news on John Ensign's problems, and for anyone that would like to follow all the sordid details, I'd highly recommend reading TPM's coverage on the subject. I would imagine Rachel or her staff are reading there as well to keep up on the latest twists and turns of this story.
