Bob Menendezís foreign underage prostitution story stubbornly not going away.
Red State ^ | January 30th, 2013 | Moe Lane

Posted on 02/01/2013 5:41:42 AM PST by IbJensen

Background: just before the election a story broke alleging that Democratic Senator Bob Menendez of New Jersey had taken advantage of the hospitality of one of his campaign contributors to go down to the Dominican Republic (via the aforementioned contributor’s private plane) and use the services of at least two prostitutes (one of whom may or may not have been underage). Worse, he allegedly refused to pay said foreign partially-underaged hookers the full amount that Menendez allegedly promised to pay – and, let me note again this in passing: to patronize a prostitute is hardly a moral act. But if you must do this, pay what you said that you were going to pay. There is a difference between being uncouth, and being a cad.

Anyway, life may get very interesting for Senator Menendez:

FBI agents late Tuesday night raided the West Palm Beach business of an eye doctor suspected of providing free trips and even underage Dominican Republic prostitutes to U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J. — who has denied what he calls the “fallacious allegations.”

Agents gathered at the medical-office complex of Dr. Salomon Melgen, a contributor to Menendez and other prominent politicians[*], to start hauling away potential evidence in several vans.

Senator Menendez has been not-willing-to-dignify-these-accusations-with-a-response the story first since it broke, and since it heated up again after the Daily Caller indicated that it had emails that the FBI was investigating the matter. Well… the FBI is certainly investigating SOMETHING, isn’t it? This puts a very interesting light on the fact that Bob Menendez ducked out of yesterday’s Senate immigration press conference early, without taking questions. It sort of didn’t make sense at the time, but then at the time the FBI raid on Salomon Melgen hadn’t happened yet, either. Bottom line here is this: when the FBI does a raid, it’s usually as per a script that has already progressed quite far and will end with somebody being arranged in the near future. Dr. Melgen is probably the current scapegoat, but honestly… the prosecutor won’t want a Florida eye doctor when s/he can get a US Senator. No prosecutor ever BECAME a Senator from putting a Florida eye doctor in jail.

One last note: the regular media could have picked all of this up two months ago; only, they apparently decided that they could get away with ignoring it because it was coming from the Daily Caller. While I certainly don’t mind people thus coming to the conclusion that online sources are faster at breaking stories, you’d think that print and television media might have a different viewpoint about that…

Moe Lane (crosspost)

PS: Let me just forestall something: yes, the FBI can and will ignore any random desires of the administration to squash this investigation, largely because Barack Obama won’t put any of those desires in writing and the FBI know that it will still be around long after Barack Obama retires to Hawaii. Certainly the next Director of the FBI plans to be. I know that it’s fashionable to assume and assert that the White House can order the bureaucracy to commit acts of seppuku without stint, but the reality is that the true infrastructure of the federal government is right now transitioning to patiently waiting for the current lame duck to inexorably leave office. It’s remarkably good at that.

The current democrat reaction is "What difference, at this point, does it make?!" At least Menedez (no relation to the Menendez brothers)likes young girls. He could like young boys, but that would be okay with democRATs too.

Disgraced Secretary Hillary and Menendez have something in common in regards to their sexual proclivities.

The current Democrat reaction is 'OH MY god THE SKY IS FALLING FOR REAL THIS TIME" ~ even the Washington Post has jumped in with about a dozen different Menendez, Clinton, McAulife, etc. stories since about 5:38 yesterday afternoon.

Just watching the Posties twitch on this one you know they've taken a look at the webpages for SEX TOURS TO DOMINICA! There are thousands of them ~ complete with pictures and offers. Everything goes ~ and this is where so many of their Democrat buddies have been going.

The rot is deep ~ and the Republicans may yet take over the Senate before Spring.

Just a reminder, at 5:38 pm yesterday the dyke broke (a pun eh) and the Washington Post started spiling their guts. This morning they took down the Democrat candidate for Governor in VA, and lord only knows who else is going to get raked with this one.

The left has an angle in this one that's not quite apparent ~ we all thought they liked kiddie sex, but they seem to now be of the impression that's an attitude that hurts the bottom line (that's a pun too) so they're going to tell all!

He voted as directed. Those who directed him how to vote paid the pimp for the girls services.

Where are the GOP in all this Menendez mess?

Instead of the Hispano Racist, Marco Rubio, Mexican Drug Cartel, Obama-Loving Illegal Alien Amnesty nonsense.....every GOP Senator needs to be speaking out....and up....about Menendez pedophilia problems.

You wonder how many GOP may be involved.....the Fanjul family who own the DR property involved are big GOP donors too

That's because it's not a story to them. He's a lib, a dem, and a minority. Nothing to report. Nothing to prosecute. A few conservatives will stomp around. Talk radio will get worked up. Joe Public won't have a clue. In six months it will be old news. In six years, he'll be re-elected by a large majority.

I see that having sex with children becomes a non-story when the perp happens to be a US Senator with a ‘D’ after his name.

Not going to happen. They are all members of the same club. The only difference here is that if Menendez happened to be a Republican, every news outlet and network in America would be running this story 24/7.

Oh, he’ll be punished severely - they’ll “censure” him, he’ll keep his senate seat, and it will be back to business as normal.

It's likely he'll be in the US scumbag Senate for as long as he wants.

It's of no wonder to me that Jim DeMint resigned.

Doesn’t matter now - it was suppressed (along with many other scandals) until after the election. Nobody really cares anymore because they have an end game plan that they expect will slap the People down and leave the government in total control.

True.....if M-dez was GOP this would be Page 1 news. However...the GOP need to nad up and speak out...unless they are also involved

The Fanjul family are pretty powerful. They paid off Bush I and Clinton to get sugar imports excluded from NAFTA.....and those exclusions are still there

C'mon with the minority tag! Except for his name he's as white (and thus unprotected) as I am!
