NJ state of affairs Menendez wooed married gal: source
The New York Post ^ | 6/23/2013 | ISABEL VINCENT and MELISSA KLEIN

Posted on 06/23/2013 12:39:52 AM PDT by NYRepublican72

Sen. Robert Menendez wooed a married newspaper publisher, taking the attractive brunette on a romantic getaway to the Caribbean, a tipster alleges.

The New Jersey Dem and Cecilia Reynolds jetted to Puerto Rico, where they stayed at the isolated beach retreat of the island’s then-governor, Anibal Acevedo Vila.

In a photo provided by the anonymous informant, Reynolds is sitting naked on a beach and suggestively smiling at the camera. In another set of pictures, they take turns posing against the same sunset backdrop.

The happy couple, dressed in shorts, also appeared to tour a national park and pose for a photo at a waterfall, Menendez wrapping his arm around Reynolds’ waist.

A document with copies of the photos along with details of the alleged tryst were provided to media organizations and the National Legal and Policy Center, a Virginia-based ethics watchdog group.

Well, that sure gives new meaning to the left-wing press being in bed with a leftist politician.

But this is not much for a N.J. sleazebag -- the home of the Gay (and corrupt) former Governor McGreevey.

So if I read this right the allegations are that he took a married woman there and stayed in the Governor’s beach house at the same time he was blocking the nomination of the U.S. Attorney who charged said Governor with 19 counts of criminal conduct (he was acquitted by the way).

Nothing to see here folks.... another Rat in Paradise. /s

Pretty much. Not just any married woman though, one of his prestitute admirers. This would probably sink a Republican. A Rat on the other hand...

Menendez, he is just nasty. Geez, this creep is a pervert

and he has the moral authority to write the immigration (amnesty) bill while expecting us to believe he’s all that honest. What a role model Ha!

Another episode in "Profiles of the Latino Criminal Underworld"----denizens of a shadowy industry where a lot of money changes hands; you can bribe 'em to say anything.

BACKSTORY Way back in 2006, Menendez had absconded to his donor pal's getaway in the swanky Casa de Campo Dominican Republic resort---Booby was fleeing from nosey US reporters, but he happily cooperated with The Dominican daily, Listin Diario.

On Aug. 22, 2006, Diario published a photo captioned: “Bob Menéndez, the senator from New Jersey, gave an interview (in Spanish) to Listin Diario at the residence of his donor---eye Doctor Salomón Melgen (a Florida resident), at Casa de Campo.”

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

STROLL DOWN MEMORY LANE 2006 was a banner year for Booby Menendez: the Congressman had just become a US Senator. But Menendez was annoyed b/c he was being investigated in a rent-for-influence deal by the US Attorney. As landlord for a Newark non-profit, Menendez collected more than $300,000 in rent. As a Congressman, he helped the agency get federal grants.

IN POLITICS ONE HAND WASHES THE OTHER Employees of the N/P agency contributed $33,450 to Menendez’s campaigns. When a furor erupted, Menendez absconded to the Dominican Republic and gave interviews there in Spanish. He returned here when the furor died down.

NOT TO WORRY The lease stated the n/p agency’s ability to pay was dependent on the agency getting certain federal/state funding. Menendez "said" he had permission from Mark Davis of the House Ethics Committee in 1994 before entering the lease. But a Capitol Hill publication said Davis didn’t work there at that juncture. And when Menendez's self-serving deal was outed, Mr Davis was incommunicado---he was a corpus delecti.

Booby had escaped unscathed.....ole.

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

FAST FORWARD TO TODAY Booby hired a Peruvian illegal who was a registered sex offender to work in his DC office as a "volunteer".......but nobody could say who paid the guy's rent, transportation costs, meals, etc.....

Booby cavorted w/ underage Dominican prostitutes who complained he shorted them on the price.

Menendez used his position and US govt authority and OUR resources to discourage plans by the United States government to donate port security equipment to the Dominican Republic to detect drug cargo.

Menendez cited concern that the advanced screening gear might undermine efforts by a private company — a company run by Menendez's major campaign contributor---a friend w/ dual residences in Miami and the Dominican Republic...Dr Melgen.

Menendez's intervention with the Department of Homeland Security came even though Mr. Menendez has publicly chastised the Obama administration for not doing more to combat the surging drug traffic moving through Dominican ports.

And it came shortly after the senator’s Miami friend, Dr. Salomon E. Melgen, arranged to meet with a senior State Dept official, accompanied by a former aide to Mr. Menendez........in a related push to protect his company's port security contract, which is worth as much as $500 million over 20 years.

Menendez has only acknowledged three Dominican visits--all in 2010--then belatedly paid Melgen $58,500 in January 2013 as reimbursement for two trips. The DSSC, which he then-headed, paid for the third, part of a fundraising swing.

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

The dreaded "Christie appointee" is the only thing standing between Menendez and a celibate life as a civilian in a tenement in downtown Hudson County. Legacy-obsessed Obama needs Menendez in the Senate (and latino votes) to takeover the US govt. Upsetting the taco truck is NOT an option.

HERE'S WHAT MENENDEZ DOESN'T WANT YOU TO KNOW---THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC is a Caribbean nation notorious for corrupt governments and strong-arm dictators. The Dominican Republic's largely impoverished citizenry have no safety net or state- sponsored job creation programs.

Some one million Dominican citizens currently live illegally in the US. They send home about a $$billion US dollars annually---considered by the corrupt do-nothing govt to be a major source of state revenue. A steady exodus is encouraged to leave for US shores lured by the endless US gravy train. (FACT SOURCE--Dominican Republic travel brochure).

BUT THE PLAYERS DO HAVE A PLAN----the Dominican govt cunningly figured out that that massive financial benefits would derive from Obama's amnesty plan. Dominican pressure groups in the US--voting blocs--exchanging votes for foreign aid---means zillions of us tax dollars going straight into the pockets of corrupt third world federales.

Menendez and his donor Melgen would be national heroes and recompensed accordingly. So when Melgen kisses up to Obama and throws money at politicans, and when the Dominican Republic meddles in US affairs (putting in the fix to exonerate Menendez), that's not about YOUR interests, that's all about THEIR interests.

“stayed in the Governor’s beach house at the same time he was blocking the nomination of the U.S. Attorney who charged said Governor”

I find this to be the most serious allegation; sounds like obstruction of justice by the dirtbag Senator

Underage ... overage ... he's a New Jersey politician.

I would not be shocked to learn that a NJ politician might bang anything that moves. Or anything that doesn't move fast enough.

This won’t effect Menendez in the least and certainly not his seven gang members, whom the American people seem to believe. Maybe the American people just cannot understand all of this, or maybe it’s not important to them as a whole.

The publication works in conjunction with the Center for Immigrant Services.

Allow me to translate that into English.
The newspaper which has a readership of perhaps 100,
and is a federally subsidized effort which receives several hundred thousand tax dollars every year.
The newspaper itself is a 501C3 not-for-profit. Director's Salary: O say, $200 Thousand + expenses, of course?
