John Ensign

Former U.S. Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) resigned this year amid an ethics investigation into affair he had with a married staffer. He "pursued the affair against the stated wishes of the woman," Maddow says. He didn't pay for sex, but "the coercion and abuse of power more than makes up for it on the creepy scale."
