"In April 2008, Senator John Ensign's parents each made gifts to Doug Hampton, Cindy Hampton, and two of their children in the form of a check totaling $96,000. Each gift was limited to $12,000. The payments were made as gifts, accepted as gifts and complied with tax rules governing gifts."
In case you haven't been following along, Cindy Hampton was the woman Senator Ensign was sleeping with. Republican "family values" at their best!
