SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic - A Dominican woman who previously stated in a video that she was paid to have sex with Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey now says the allegations were false, according to a sworn statement released by a lawyer on Monday.
The notarized affidavit was distributed by a prominent Dominican lawyer and friend of Menendez, Vinicio Castillo, who said it had been handed over to prosecutors. Castillo is not acting as the lawyer to the woman.
In her sworn statement, Nexis de los Santos Santana denied ever meeting Menendez and said she never agreed to be filmed.
New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez is addressing allegations that he hired a prostitute on a trip to the Dominican Republic, saying they are "totally unsubstantiated." The campaign donor with whom he traveled is currently under federal investigation. NBC's Kelly O'Donnell reports.
Menendez, a Cuban-American Democrat who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, won re-election to a second term last year. He has repeatedly denied the sex claims, calling them "politically motivated" smears.
Asked on Monday night about the affidavit, a spokeswoman for the senator declined to comment. The affidavit was first reported by the Washington Post.
The original videotaped interview with the woman features her saying that Menendez paid her for sex and that she was cheated out of the full amount he had agreed to pay.
But according to the affidavit released on Monday, the woman now says she was paid to read from a prepared text and was videotaped without her consent.

After ethics complaint, Sen. Menendez pays $58,500 for two flights to Dominican Republic:
No one ask how the $ 58,5000 figure was arrived at for two or three flights in a private jet.
What, Menendez gives out a number, and everyone absolves him? WTH?
You can bet that hush money for folks in the DR is included in that figure.
Meanwhile, have they forgiven Larry Craig for tapping his foot in a men’s room stall?
Which is different than saying they are not true
Sort of like Clintons always saying "I don't believe there is any evidence of" the crimes they committed... ALSO not saying it is false, just saying there is no evidence (they made sure there was no evidence)
She was paid for sex, she was paid to SAY she had sex, and now she’s paid to say she was paid for sex.
Smart woman, growing wealth!
Uh, they got to her. Duh.
Wonder how much she got paid to recant?
With the Dems, only way to get the truth out of them is with truth drugs, lie detectors, etc. Otherwise, got to figure whatever they say is some sort of lie. The US President setting the example of non-stop dishonesty.
musta threatened her with...the comfy chair
or more likely, with a shark fishing trip with some guys from NJ
How much was she paid to change her story?
Welcome to today’s version of “The Price is Right.” /S
I don’t know nuttin’ ‘bout nuttin’. How do you say that in Spanish?
However, a US citizen traveling to a foreign country to purchase sex from an underage person is a federal felony under US law-----and Menendez had been named by at least three such persons.
SOUTH OF THE BORDER SCAM Of course, the corrupt Dominican federales could make these little girls disappear and be well-rewarded w/ billions in US foreign aid----which Menendez will gladly facilitate to save his degenerate a**.
LAUGH BREAK--PROSTIE RECANTS---OBAMA IS S-O-O-O- RELIEVED (CACKLE)
The Miami Herald reportsalleged kiddy-prostie Nexis de los Santos Santana, and Dominican lawyer, Miguel Galván, entered sworn statements claiming they were duped as part of an elaborate plan hatched by a Dominican lawyer under the guise of a divorce case involving Menendez donor/dealer, Salomon Melgen. I never went to bed with [Menendez or Melgen]. I dont know them, de los Santos, 23, said in the testimony.
(waiting for hysterical laughter to die down)
Ahhhhhthe fluid corrupt minds south-of-the-border are a wonderment (cackle). Prostie claims she was gonna get paid to say she didnow shes getting more to say she didnt.
Sure would like to see Menendezs emails and cellphone records. The degenerate musta been buring up the transcontinental lines to save his sorry a**.
The denial deal must involve a buncha moneyas Judge Judy might say: Show me where you got the money to pay for this.
Number Onekeep an eye on Menendezs Senatorial earmarks; transfers from accounts held by his lobbying gal; billion dollar Senate appropriations to the Dominican Republic for the children; Obama dropping several hundred billion tax dollars on the DR as a token of his gratitude for saving a latino a**.
GOOD GUESS, LIZ My guess is the denial deal involves a chunk of the port security action(big bucks from drug cartels to smuggle drugs in Dominican port cargo) which Menendez has been bird-dogging using US govt authority and govt resources to force into fruition.
Non comprende, senor Menendez.
Just as they do to Republicans, tough! He gets no free pass on this. democrats paid her to retract her statement.
