Statement by Daniel Albregts, attorney for Doug and Cindy Hampton, regarding Sen. John Ensign's extramarital affair:
Doug and Cindy Hampton can confirm that they are the individuals referenced by Sen. Ensign during his press conference.
It is unfortunate the senator chose to air this very personal matter, especially after the Hamptons did everything possible to keep this matter private.
It is equally unfortunate that he did so without concern for the effect such an announcement would have on the Hampton family.
In time the Hamptons will be ready and willing to tell their side of the story. Until then, please respect their privacy.
