Yesterday, KLAS-TV in Las Vegas reported that Rogich, and several other people, received subpoenas from the Senate Ethics committee, which is probing the matter.

Ensign also reportedly met with several Nevada businesses to try to find a job for Hampton. Justice Department investigators, also probing the matter, have reportedly sent subpoenas to some of those businesses, and to the National Republican Senatorial Committee. KLAS reported that the Feds are looking into an episode in which credit card companies donated to the NRSC -- then chaired by Ensign -- after Ensign told them he would help fight off new regulations.
