Woman changes story, denies being paid for sex with Sen. Robert Menendez
NBC ^ | 3/5/2013 | Manuel Jimenez, Kevin Gray and Edith Honan

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.

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?

"...Menendez is addressing allegations that he hired a prostitute on a trip to the Dominican Republic, saying they are "totally unsubstantiated.""

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)

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.

Go back and re-read the story, the woman interviewed by the FBI and/or washpost WAS NOT the woman quoted in the DC article.

Prostitution may be legal in hellholes like the Dominican Republic that provide few opportunities for their teeming impoverished populations.(A major source of revenue is the US dollars Domincan illegals in the US wire back home.)

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 reports—alleged 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 don’t know them,” de los Santos, 23, said in the testimony.

(waiting for hysterical laughter to die down)

Ahhhhh—the fluid corrupt minds south-of-the-border are a wonderment (cackle). Prostie claims she was gonna get paid to say she did—now she’s getting more to say she didn’t.

=======================================

Sure would like to see Menendez’s 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 money—as Judge Judy might say:” Show me where you got the money to pay for this.”

Number One—keep an eye on Menendez’s 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.

‘Go back and re-read the story, the woman interviewed by the FBI and/or washpost WAS NOT the woman quoted in the DC article.’

So the thread title is misleading due to NYT/WaPo misinformation.

So much for that. She changed her story, so now Menendez is off the hook. I wonder how much she was paid. Wouldn’t surprise me if she was paid off by obama himself,,,with taxpayer money.

I posted two articles about that this morning, yet very few people here have read them - instead they want to say “she was paid off”.

The problem with her story now is this. She is TELLING us that previously, she was willing to lie for money.

But if she is confessing to being willing to lie for money, how do we know she is not NOW lying for money?

Once you admit to lying for payment, you can’t be trusted.

So maybe she lied before, or maybe she is lying now. And she had a lot more incentive to lie now, because I’m sure there was both a significant pressure against her, and probably an offer of money to recant.

With a phony like Obama firmly ensconced in the White Hut, himself a deviant, this wouldn't surprise me a bit.

Obama is like a turtle found perched atop a fence post. How did he get there?
