Here's a statement from eCommLink, one of the Nevada companies at the center of the mushrooming John Ensign investigation, acknowledging that it has received a subpoena from the Justice Department:
eCommLink, like a number of other Nevada companies, has received subpoenas regarding the Federal investigation of Senator John Ensign. We are cooperating fully in this investigation.
eCommLink has acted ethically and lawfully at all times and has not been accused of any wrongdoing whatsoever.
We pride ourselves on our own internal commitment to a high level of integrity in all of our business transactions. Additionally, as a member of the financial transaction industry, we are under constant scrutiny due to our strict adherence to the industry regulations and standards.
CEO of eCommLink
KLAS-TV reported yesterday that the company, and other credit card firms, contributed to Ensign's NRSC in exchange for Ensign's help in fighting new regulations.
Jack Williams, who KLAS reported was at the time the CEO of eCommLink, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
