SEN. ROBERT MENENDEZ (D-NJ) DENIES PROSTITUTION REPORTS.
But, of course, the prostitution bit isn’t the big story — heck, I think prostitution should be legalized — it’s the influence peddling that’s the real story. Menendez actually would rather you focus on the underage-hooker reports, I suspect.
UPDATE: Menendez: Flights to Caribbean ‘Fell Through the Cracks.’ Uh huh. “The plane trips have come under scrutiny because Melgen’s ophthalmology office was raided by the FBI last week. Subsequently, the New York Times reported that Menendez went to great lengths to help Melgen’s business interests in the Dominican Republic, including pressing State Department officials to help force the Dominican government to honor a contract with a port security company associated with Melgen.”
