Family Valuez

Q: What do Republicans Senator John Ensign, Governor Mark Sanford, and former Representative Chip Pickering all have in common?

A: They're all members of the Christian Congressmember group "The Family"—and they all cheated on their wives.

Pickering, the newest outed member of this elite gang, even allegedly carried on his affair while living at the C Street townhouse belonging to The Family, which can rent space well below-market because it's classified by the IRS as a church.
