Democrat Senator Menendez To Be Indicted On Federal Corruption Charges

Democrat Senator Bob Menendez To Be Indicted On Corruption – Townhall

According to an exclusive report published first by CNN, Democrat Senator Bob Menendez will be indicted by the Department of Justice on federal corruption charges.

The Justice Department is preparing to bring criminal corruption charges against New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez, alleging he used his Senate office to push the business interests of a Democratic donor and friend in exchange for gifts.

People briefed on the case say Attorney General Eric Holder has signed off on prosecutors’ request to proceed with charges, CNN has learned exclusively. An announcement could come within weeks. Prosecutors are under pressure in part because of the statute of limitation on some of the allegations.

The government’s case centers on Menendez’s relationship with Salomon Melgen, a Florida ophthalmologist who the senator has called a friend and political supporter. Melgen and his family have been generous donors to the senator and various committees the senator is associated with.

Menendez has been under fire over the past three years for allegations of hiring underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic, for accepting suspicious campaign donations and much more. Yahoo has a rundown of the scandals surrounding Menendez here.

I should point out that the timing of the indictment is interesting. Menendez has been a harsh critic of President Obama’s policy and negotiations with Iran and has been a staunch supported of Israel.

Bob Menendez: It is RAAAAACIST to point out that I enjoy banging underage hookers!

 You just knew he would throw the Race Card didn’t you?

This weekend, at an event celebrating Black History Month at Shiloh Baptist Church in Trenton, N.J., the senator answered the accusations with the words of Martin Luther King Jr.

“Dr. King said that ‘the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice,’” he said, according to the New Jersey Star-Ledger. “Now we face anonymous, faceless, nameless individuals from right-wing sources seeking to destroy a lifetime of work. And their scares are false. I have worked too hard and too long in the vineyards to allow, at my hands, for the harvest to be soured.”

“I have felt the sting of discrimination,” he said, according to the North Jersey Record.

Menendez said he believes ultimately, “justice will overcome the forces of darkness.”

“I have my hand on the plough,” he said, “and I am going to continue to look forward and to work to make that plough lead us to the fulfillment of educational, economic and health care opportunity in this country.”

 Of course, the Senator IS  innocent until proven guilty, but it seems that the raaaaacism defense always precedes an admission of guilt.

From the Department of Redundancy Department

Stacy McCain ponders the redundancy of the term corrupt Democrat.

William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection reports on a congressional ethics investigation that has found “there is substantial reason to believe that Representative Owens accepted payment of travel expenses for an officially connected trip to Taiwan from an impermissible source, resulting in an impermissible gift, in violation of federal law and House Rules.”

Maybe a better question is was there any banging of underage hookers going on?

Short answer: Hell to the yes!

Two FBI sources have told The Daily Caller that the bureau’s inquiry into  Democratic New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez is now based in New Jersey, not  Miami. One added that pressure is mounting from the highest levels of the  Justice Department to pursue the investigation.
The change of focus away from the bureau’s Miami field office indicates that  the government is focused primarily on Sen. Menendez — and not on his longtime  donor Dr. Salomon Melgen, as political observers have speculated.
Menendez is embroiled in a scandal sparked by allegations that he slept with  underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic.

(Hat-tip: Viral Read.) There are rumors that powerful Democrats are now working to hasten the downfall of Menendez.

See ya Bob, good luck getting those underage hookers after you are gone from the Senate. Because after that, Bob, you will not be a powerful United States Senator. You will just be an undesirable 59-year-old pervert. One more thought, I think we all can agree that the only way the Bob Menendez/Underage hookers story could be worse would be if a sex tape surfaced. Bob Menendez sex tape? UGH!

Latest on Bob Menendez sex scandal: “It was outrageous. When it started, we thought it was a one-time thing. But it went on for months — hours and hours of headbanging sex.”

Old Bob was quite the party animal I guess

New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez had loud sex with different women nightly in his Washington, D.C., apartment, his former neighbor told the liberal gossip website Gawker.

“We lived below him,” the former neighbor said, according to the website. “It was outrageous. When it started, we thought it was a one-time thing. But it went on for months — hours and hours of headbanging sex.”

The report in the liberal Gawker comes on the heels of The Daily Caller’s early Thursday article about how Menendez allegedly paid two women in the Dominican Republic for sex.

So, it appears that Menendez likely enjoyed the company of “working girls” in his DC  home, so you might figure he would indulge himself in the Dominican Republic too. Here are more details on the Hell Menendez put his neighbors through

The former neighbor said that when the Senate was in session, Menendez would normally stay at his D.C. apartment on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. On Mondays, Fridays and weekends, he’d normally go home to New Jersey. On at least two of those three weeknights, the neighbor said Menendez would have young, attractive women over for sex.

“They’d usually arrive together in the late evening,” the neighbor said. “We’d hear him put some jazz on. Maybe around 11 p.m., the noise would start. He had a very squeaky mattress and a very squeaky bed frame. We’d hear moaning, and we could hear them switching positions because different parts of the bed would squeak. It was awful.”

I hated to post that, but, inquiring minds want to know. No word yet if Menendez or his “dates” ever wore chicken suits or used fly swatters or Crisco. Also no word on a possible Bob Menendez sex tape. WE can all agree to hope no such thing exists.

Yes, I know, I ought to take this story more seriously, but, my twisted sense of humor needs to run with it a bit.
