Last night the Drudge Report hinted of a sex scandal about to hit a powerful senator. The Daily Caller reported overnight that the senator in question is Robert Menendez, up for re-election in New Jersey.
Reporter Matthew Boyle wrote,
In interviews, the two women said they met Menendez around Easter at Casa de Campo, an expensive 7,000 acre resort in the Dominican Republic. They claimed Menendez agreed to pay them $500 for sex acts, but in the end they each received only $100.
Evidently Menendez has a friend in Florida who has offered his plane to Menendez as he apparently did over the Easter weekend.
“He called him[self] ‘Bob,’” said one (of the prostitutes).
One woman said Menendez wooed her with compliments like “beautiful” before they slept together. The other woman recounted, with apparent bitterness, receiving from an intermediary only $100 of the $500 she had been promised.
“He lies,” she said of Menendez. “He says one thing and does another.”
According to the translator’s summary, Menendez “was nice at first, but then later he did not seem to care about her.”
Yes, that certainly sounds like a Democrat, doesn’t it? You’d have to agree with this comment: “Prostitutes should always get their money upfront, especially with Democrat politicians. If only Menendez was as frugal with government spending as he is with his hookers.”
Interestingly, the Washington Times found Menendez had no sympathy for Secret Service agents involved in a prostitution scandal:
on April 17, Sen. Menendez was interviewed by NJ Today Online and was asked about what the consequences should be for the secret service agents who were involved in the sex scandal in Cartegena, Colombia.
He answered, “If the facts are true, they should all be fired. The reality is is that the secret service not only protects the president of the United States, they represent the United States of America. They were on duty. If the facts are true as we are reading in the press, they shouldn’t have a job.”
Menendez is 58 and divorced. He’s been in the Senate since 2005 when he was appointed to fill a vacancy. His Republican opponent in this race is Joe Kyrillos, a New Jersey state senator. Let’s hope the people of New Jersey wake up and oust this guy.
