Bob Menendez under FBI investigation for Sex with Under-age Hookers
ABC News knew of allegations on May 2, 2012, and sat on the story
From Eric Dondero:
Thanks to a cover-up by an icon of the liberal media – ABC News – it’s US Senator Bob Menendez, Democrat of New Jersey, not Republican Senator-elect John Kyrollos. If these allegations had come out before the election no telling what would have happened in that NJ race, and what the implications would have been for the presidential race.
Amazingly, the top New Jersey news site NJ.com, which leans heavily Democrat is completely ignoring the allegations, and instead is running this headline story today:
Sen. Menendez returns to Washington on the rise
A good summation of the latest prostitution allegations from the New Jersey “rightwing blog” Jerseynut.com, “Senator Menendez Loves Him Some Teenage Whores…”:
To quote the Beastie Boys – that the girlies he likes are underage, which got the FBI interested as well:
Documents 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. TheDC reported in November that Menendez purchased the service of prostitutes in that Caribbean nation at a series of alcohol-fueled sex parties.
Information made available to (ABC News senior investigative producer) Rhonda Schwartz and Carrie Levine (research director at Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington) at that time included allegations that some of Menendez’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 senator’s travel.
