At least I think that is what The Other McCain is saying about the media cover up of Sen. Bob Menendez’s international outreach to underage prostitutes
When the major news networks ignored the FBI raid on the Miami doctor who bankrolled Sen. Robert Menendez’s trips to the Dominican Republic, I was frankly stunned. No matter how liberal your bias may be, the allegation that Menendez was banging underage hookers during his Caribbean expeditions is irresistible as news.
There is nothing in mere politics than can equal the power of a sex scandal to make people pay attention.
And dude: Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee? It’s almost as good as a sex scandal with a congressman named Weiner.
I guess we now have the answer to the question of how deep into Democrats the media really is don’t we? Ignoring a Senator cheating on his wife is one thing, but ignoring a United States Senator doing the Horizontal Bop with possibly underage hookers? Oh, did I mention that these girls were, indeed GIRLS?
In a little-noticed email published online Wednesday by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a young Dominican woman wrote nine months ago that she slept with 59-year-old New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez at a series of sex parties organized by Dr. Salomon Melgen, a longtime Menendez campaign donor.
“That Senator also likes the youngest and newest girls,” the woman wrote on April 21, 2002, according to an English translation provided to The Daily Caller by a native Spanish speaker.
Alas, if ONLY Menendez were a Republican America would be very familiar with this story by now, but, he is a Liberal Democrat so, well, you know, some scandals are more equal than others!
So, I suppose it will be up to those “just bloggers” types to report the sordid details huh? Perhaps we even need a theme song for breaking Bob “I Likes ‘em Young” Menendez News. Here is one idea
