The Daily Caller has been doing the job the Obama State Media just won't do- journalism- and they are on fire in the Menendez investigation.
Emails show FBI investigating Sen. Bob Menendez for sleeping with underage Dominican prostitutes
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.
The documents, which The Daily Caller had obtained hours earlier from an anonymous source, also indicate that Carrie Levine, research director at Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), was alerted on April 9, 2012 to Menendezs habit of paying for sex while outside the United States.

ABC News senior investigative producer Rhonda Schwartz was aware as early as May 2, 2012, the documents show, when Levine wrote a source in the Dominican Republic to say that she had shared your allegations, but not your identities, with a respected, trusted journalist with whom we have worked on other stories.
Dominican prostitute: Sen. Bob Menendez likes the youngest and newest girls
In a little-noticed email published online Wednesday by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a young Dominican woman wrote nine months ago that she slept with 59-year-old New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez at a series of sex parties organized by Dr. Salomon Melgen, a longtime Menendez campaign donor.
That senator also likes the youngest and newest girls, the woman wrote on April 21, 2012, according to an English translation provided to The Daily Caller by a native Spanish speaker.
In the beginning he seemed so serious, because he never spoke to anyone, but he is just like the others and has just about the same tastes as the doctor, very refined. I think they were taking us more often to get us checked [medically] because of him.
But it's OK because Menendez cares about prostitution- in Cuba
Menendezs alleged Dominican prostitution spree coincided with crusade against prostitution in Cuba
Despite allegations that Democratic New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez had sex with underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic on several occasions in recent years, he has been a persistent critic of the Cuban regime for economic conditions that have led to widespread prostitution among young people.
The average Cuban worker lives on an income of less than $1 a day, Menendez said during a March 2, 2009 Senate floor speech, arguing that the communist Cuban dictatorships policies caused nationwide poverty.
This poverty has an enormous cost, the son of Cuban emigres to the U.S. explained. The widespread desperation of families has forced far too many young girls and boys into becoming sex workers, even though defenders of the Revolution constantly cite the elimination of prostitution as one of its supposed accomplishments.
We learn that Menendez is following a young looking Domincan girl on Twitter:

Menendez says he’s really against drug trafficking in the Dominican Republic, and that’s why his eye doctor friend should handle port security there involving scanning of cargo containers. I’m not suggesting anything untoward but in light of the swirl of allegations and some FBI activity in some areas maybe it’s worth looking into this area, too.
Well without the Teddy Bear she probably looked 18. Right Bob?
If he gets ousted from his senate seat, I wonder what retread will come along ? Toricelli ? Kind of like Frank Lautenberg coming back from retirement.
Well, is he just sleeping with them, or is he engaging in other nefarious activities? Probably doesn't matter much. He sounds like a dirt bag.
I don't know exactly what he did, but it probably didn't include much SLEEPING! < /counter euphamism >
There, fixed it.
They’ll punish him the same way they punished Charlie Rangle. They’ll “censure” him, he’ll keep his senate seat, and that will be the end of that.
Hey, he’s a hispanic democrat. Treated just like obama. The leftist democratic frauds can’t see anything wrong with his behavior.
The Dominican Republic has lots of corruption including on the police force and is a smuggler’s paradise.
LOL, thank you. I knew there had to be more to it than meets the eye.
If his name was 'Sandusky', would people be acting differently? He is a child-sex predator. He needs to be locked up in federal PMITA prison.
If they’re 16 or 17, they’re really not children.
If I were a middle-aged man buying third world prostitutes, you better believe I’d want the youngest and the newest - isn’t that normal? It’s a sin, and it’s illegal in various jurisdictions, but it’s normal.
That's just the way it is these days (shrug - - NBC, CBS, CNN, ABC, the New York Times and the rest of the dying Democrat "mainstream" newsrooms are all over scandals that involve Republicans, and the rising new media pioneers, in order to fill the void, are all over scandals that involve Democrats.
In actuality, not much has changed in the past 20 years as far as the dying Democrat "mainstream" newsrooms are concerned - - they operate they same way t5hey have for at least 50 years. It's just that nowadays they can be more open (brazen?) about their biases. Most importantly, they can no longer get away with lies and fabrications (see: Dan Rather, CBS) the way they used to, and they can no longer spike stories that are unfavorable to their party (see: Monica Lewinsky, Newsweek) the way they could before the rise of the new media.
Sure, the scumbags still hold way to much influence (see: Barack Hussein Ubama, African communist, elected President of the United States) but little by little that influence is waning. It has been a slow, excrucitating death but when the end finally comes it will herald the beginning of a more honest American journalism.
Normal? No, it’s sick.
Disgusting, not normal. You need help.
Response: Does not matter. He will retire "for health reasons" amid much honor. He will keep a multi million dollar pension. He will hit the talk show circuits at $1,000,000 a pop. He will get speech fees of $849,000/"pop". There may be a book deal with a $1,500,000 advance followed by a movie of his life as a fighter for "rights!" Lastly, after a life totally devoted to vice addiction he will find "Jeezus" at the moment he dies(according to some theologies I see on this site) and immediately go strait to heaven where he will sit on the right hand of God and later come to judge the quick and the dead.
Comment: Thus it is in America 2013 A.D.;vice and bad men rise to the top with all accompanying fees and perks. They never pay.
” he looks like a fag...”
Apparently just a, um, short-shrifted hetero.
“If they’re 16 or 17 they’re really not children.”
From New Jersey, hey?
Maybe you ought to run for the Senate.
I still wouldn't bet on that at this point. He's an influential lib and I expect the media to start putting out stories about all his good social work, then start trashing daily caller efforts. I'd also expect a special gala event to give him some awards ...maybe a Nobel Prize.
Sex Parties? Isn’t that want brought down US Rep Ryan and gave us Barrack Obama?
Democrats are immune.
F.A. Hayek devoted Chapter X in his Road to Serfdom, "Why the Worst Get on Top," to the confluence of evil men and statist government.
Interesting. Thank you for the reference.
From: The Hill.com
"Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) fended off questions about Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) at a press conference about immigration reform.
The first question out of the gate was from CNN correspondent Jim Acosta, who asked Reid when he learned that Menendez had reimbursed a political donor nearly $60,000 for two trips he took on the donors private plane.
Reid defended the Menendez as a friend and outstanding senator but declined to discuss any details he may have had with the New Jersey lawmaker about media reports of allegations that he had sex with prostitutes in the Dominican Republic. "Menendez has denied the sexual allegations as manufactured by a politically motivated right-wing blog and false.
Most of the reporting on the story has come from the conservative website The Daily Caller and Reid dismissed its work when asked about it at a Tuesday press conference.
I always consider the source, and all anyone here has to look at is the source where this comes from, he told reporters. It's a source that has brought up a lot of non-issues.
That depends on whether the democrats can com3e up with a pretext to ignore the various treaties on international sex tourism that we signed onto ten years ago/
He should not have diplomatic immunity of any sort on his unauthorized junkets, and if the Dominican Republic demands we extradite him there for trial per our signed treaties there isn’t much pretext I can see not to send him.
Let him rot in one of their jails pending a trial that our FBI will likely have turned over the evidence for.
Jerry, I thought you were in the joint.
LOL I was just thinking, well at least he’s banging girls...
If you think pedophilia is “normal”, you’ve got a bigger problem than just your post #14.
Under Dominican Republic law, they are. The age of consent is eighteen there.
Bobby (The Diddler) Menendez's troubles are throwing a monkey wrench into Obama's plans for amnesty---which was sailing along rather smoothly...even Repubs started to cave.
Obama confidently tapped Bobby for a lead role in the amnesty effort--as Bobby traveled far and wide as the point man for amnesty. Obama figured Menendez was a natural---him being a latino victim who overcame adversity (sob).
Now, NBC-TV reports Dem leaders met in secret to discuss the problem but are supporting Menendez, for now publicly, at least.
You gotta believe the Obama admin is exerting molto pressure on Dems to stand firm (excuse the expression) behind Menendez. Any deviation could be fatal to Obama's plans to establish a permanent Dem majority by conjuring up new Dem voters from all those latinos pouring over our borders.
JUST A THOUGHT....wonder if any of those Dominican Republic little girls Booby likes to diddle were slipped in (excuse the expression) to Obama's amnesty plans?
Menendez's problems have effectively exposed that male/female child prostitution is rampant in the Third World.....and would be a collateral effect of amnesty.
The cynical among us see the push for amnesty on Capitol Hill concealing a dark, corrupt hidden agenda.
Underage males/females cannot legally consent to sex - therefore it is considered Statuatory Rape in civilized countries. Amnesty would change all that.
Third World girls/boys engaged in this activity are little more than "slaves"--- ordered about by money-hungry slavemasters. No one in that position has a choice---a "choice" that hypocritical liberal Bobby champions from US rooftops.
The diddling fee was $500 but Menendez supposedly used his US Senate Credit Card to stiff (excuse the expression) her, paying only $100. But don't bother to object----Menendez's Senate bill will read something innocuous like "bottled water."
In China and other countries, Menendez would be executed for diddling little girls. In Obama's Royal America, we discuss it.
Send the word out far and wide--legislators pulling for amnesty (despite Americans distaste for it)---who have foreign connections had better come clean now.
NO AMNESTY UNTIL WE KNOW THE SCOPE AND DIMENSION OF MENENDEZ'S FINANCIAL INVOLVEMENT W/ THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC GOVERNMENT
NO AMNESTY until we know whether Menendez is being blackmailed to push amesty in exchange for erasing videos of his involvemet w/ underage prostitutes.
NO AMNESTY UNTIL WE KNOW whether other amnesty-prone legislators are being blackmailed
NO AMNESTY UNTIL WE KNOW THE SCOPE AND DIMENSION OF amnesty supporters possible involvement w/ foreign governments.
NO AMNESTY UNTIL WE KNOW THE SCOPE AND DIMENSION OF administration officials' communiques w/ foreign govts WRT amnesty.
NO AMNESTY UNTIL WE KNOW THE SCOPE AND DIMENSION OF financial deals amnesty supporters might have with foreign governments.
NO AMNESTY until The Hispanic Caucus is scrutinized WRT its sconnections with foreign governments.
(1) Americans demand to see emails, phone records, all means of communication legislators have with foreign governments. (2) Americans demand to hear testimony under oath from groups like "Voto Latino" and other Third World pressure groups lobbying Capitol Hill----and the scope of their financing from foreign governments.
These published accounts are only the tip of the iceberg---to distract us from the massive crimes being committed. God only knows the financial bombs planted in govt budgets that jetstream tax dollars offshore through infinity.
The secrecy should be unveiled. Americans demand Hispanic Caucus, Voto Latino, La Raza, and like groups, come up with complete records of their activities: (1) checks, (2) wire transfers, (3) bank account statements, (4) invoices, (5) bills, (6) delivery tickets, (7) correspondence including e-mail, employment contracts, loan agreements, and, (8) any other govt books or records.
Scrutinize govt bank accounts for suspicious activites: (A) large deposits, (B) funds transferred from one account into another, (C) request for withdrawals.
The media should begin digging----report monies paid to (a) brokers, sub-brokers, (b) family members, (c) mortgage brokers, (d) financial managers, and, (e) real estate agents, brokers, and developers, and the like.
Americans then have standing to sue banks holding monies found to be covering up govt fraud.
