Emails show FBI investigating Sen. Bob Menendez for sleeping with underage prostitutes (D-NJ)
Daily Caller ^ | David Martosko

Posted on 01/26/2013 8:59:06 AM PST by JohnPDuncan

The media are not covering this story despite the FBI agent in the emails saying that most of the information has been confirmed. If the allegations are true Menendez could be prosecuted under the 2003 PROTECT ACT making travel and having sex with minors knowingly or not a federal offense with up to 30 years in prison.

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.

The media is operating under their own version of the Protect Act. Its to protect democrat politicians from unfavorable media exposure.

Was he actually sleeping with the prostitute, or simply having sex with her?

For democrats everything about this is a resume enhancer - since Menendez is a democrat.

Check out the site, it seems to have testimony from one of the girls:

http://fedsinvestigationonsenmenendez.wordpress.com/

She said she met him several times and gives the dates (which should be verifiable with flight logs and what not) she said she was 16 at the time and one meeting was around her 17th birthday

The media has completely different standards for coving Democrat scandals. They mostly don’t. If a Democrat gets caught doing something illegal...and the story gets enough legs where the msm has no choice...they won’t mention the political party of the culprit...or they will present as...”nothing much to see here, move on”.

The msm and the Democrats are married.

Well, it's not like he did something truly heinous, like write things about women in his diary, amd needs to be drummed from Congress and from the human race for it. The days of Bob Packwood seem like another lifetime. Tha's the last time that I can recall the Demonrats pretending to be appalled at sexual shenanigans. Now, it's nobody's business if Barney Frank's boytoy runs a sodomite brothel from Frank's house, or the Leader of the Free World gets a bj in the Oval Office (at least Clinton felt compelled to lie about it, these days I don't think he'd bother, he'd just say it's his private life and not the business of the citizens), or Anthony Weiner sending pics of his thimble to women he hardly knows.

I don't go for this "it's my private life and nobody's business" stuff. Sexual shenanigans speak to character, or lack thereof.

Statement: "Emails show FBI investigating Sen. Bob Menendez for sleeping with underage prostitutes"

Response: Of course he is sleeping with underage girls and boys. In addition, he has access to the finest wines and drugs at no charge to him. He has made millions in cash just by being in office. He waxes fat by way of $1,000 dollar meals. AFTER ALL HE IS A MEMBER OF THE UNITED STATES SENATE!

That’s OK he needed to do this so CNN could give him a TV show. The Menendez Hour.

Frankly I think we need to find some investigative reporters in the Dominican Republic to find out what the hell is going on down there with the democrats.

It seems to be a favored vacation spot for democrat politicians and we need to find out why.

If it’s good enough for mere bodyguards of the ‘Resident in the White Hut I suppose it’s good enough for a senator. Sexual shenanigans seem to have become par for the course amongst politicians and their circle.

Looks like Menendez can make a great case for becoming Majority Leader.
