John Ensign’s Interns Pack It In


No word on when or whether we’ll get an Ensign resign, but yesterday the hypocritical Senator left his post as the chair of the Republican Policy Committee, so are they packing up boxes at the HQ? A couple of hours ago, this tidbit on Roll Call:

In an e-mail sent to intern coordinators in Senate offices on Thursday afternoon, Ensign’s coordinator Jessica Walton said she is looking to place an unspecified number of the Nevada Republican’s interns in other offices. “This is Jessica from Ensign’s office. I am trying to find out if anyone has any openings for interns. I have some really great interns that want to relocate to another office. If you have anything or know of someone who does please let me know,” Walton wrote in the e-mail.

Clearing out the committee worker bees? Calling it quits altogether? Interns begging for another name for the resume? Whatever, hey interns: We’re hiring! Join our scandal-free DC bureau and investigate Senators for a living; we promise not to let you down.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
