An article on Breitbart reports “While the mainstream English-speaking media remain asleep at the switch in the Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) prostitution scandal, Univision took the opportunity to grill Menendez over reports about the scandal. Reporter Lourdes Meluza asked Menendez about his ‘position regarding the accusations made by The Daily Caller and others that say that you went to the Dominican Republic and attended parties at Casa de Campo where prostitutes were present, minors, even. Could you reiterate your position and respond to this please?’ Menendezâ€™s answer was a repeat of his ‘vast right wing conspiracy’ nonsense….”
The Daily Caller reports: â€œDocuments published online for the first time Thursday indicate that the FBI opened an inquiry into New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez on August 1, 2012, focusing on repeated trips he took to the Dominican Republic with longtime campaign contributor and Miami eye doctor Salomon Melgen. The DC reported in November that Menendez purchased the service of prostitutes in that Caribbean nation at a series of alcohol-fueled sex parties.”
“Information made availableâ€¦at that time included allegations that some of Menendezâ€™s prostitutes were as young as 16. The source also alleged that Sen. Menendez was taking non-authorized trips to the Dominican Republic, suggesting that he may have been evading Senate Ethics committee rules covering disclosures when third parties pay for a senatorâ€™s travel.â€
The Daily Caller quotes a source as saying: “‘I have in my possession the original written in her own hand… Sheâ€™s 19 now, but took part in private parties with Senator Menendez being only 16.’â€
So why is this not banner headlines all over the web? Could Mr. Mendendez being a Democrat have anything to do with it? After all, if youâ€™re going to practice sleaze in any form, it helps to be a member of the ruling party in a one-party state. Can you imagine what would have happened if this guy were a Republican? Actually, you don’t have to imagine. Just think about Senator Larry Craig’s speedy fall.
