Emails show FBI investigating Sen. Bob Menendez for sleeping with underage Dominican prostitutes
The Daily Caller ^ | January 25, 2013 | David Martosko, executive editor

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 Menendez’s 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.”

In another email two days later, Levine identified that journalist as one who “works for ABC News.” By May 16, Schwartz was emailing Levine’s original source with questions...

Who here thinks the media would've kept this under wraps for a year had it been a Republican politician?

New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez is leading a highly-charged hearing this morning in which Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will testify about the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, providing a preview of what will likely be a new, powerful role for Menendez.

Menendez, who is Cuban American, is the first Latino elected to the U.S. House and Senate from New Jersey and would become the first Latino chair of the Foreign Relations Committee. His rise to the top of a panel with broad authority to oversee U.S. foreign policy will mean new attention to relations with Central and South America, normally a diplomatic backwater.

Bob "Tattoo" Menendez is an anti-White racist. He also used the race card against a Bush judicial nominee saying the guy wasn't Latino enough or something along those lines.

Those women who allowed this ugly hobbit to violate them earned every cent.

You see, it is part of his culture to abuse young women and you are a racist if you think otherwise!

Criminality is a resume enhancement for Democrats. They just love the ‘I am so sorry’ confessional. I wish those politicians who live a good, clean and truthful lifestyle would get as much fawning as the fallen do.

Oh, come on -- you're looking at this all wrong! The feds can't charge Menendez with anything, and nobody can lay any sort of morals beef against him -- he's from New Jersey, and he's a Democrat!!

Sheesh. Some people!

"for sleeping with underage Dominican prostitutes"

So that's what Pedophilia is called when a democrat Senator is found to have had sex with children.

You bet! It makes their doper-looter voters feel superior to somebody, and they tend to reward that behavior at election time. Plus, the money and free stuff doesn't hurt.

He’s a democrat from New Jersey. The only qualification to get elected in New Jersey is “democrat.” The only main disqualification is “Republican,” Anything else is just incidental stuff. And if you l.ok at the fat SOS that’s the governor of NJ, you will see a democrat that calls himself a republican.

Senator Menendez is one of the turd-blossoms who sponsored Senate Resolution 511 deeming Senator McCain a “Natural Born Citizen.”

Senate Resolutions do not trump the Constitution. McCain WAS born outside the US jurisdiction in a civilian hospital in Colon, Panama.

For the those who are naysayers to that fact, please read the record before you “flame away.” I know... NTSA (”Not This Shit Again).
