Another case of doing the job no American wants to do.
Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) rebuffed allegations of impropriety surrounding reports that he paid two Dominican prostitutes for sex during a visit to the island nation earlier this year. First of all, prostitution is completely legal in the Dominican Republic, Menendez asserted. Why should I be lambasted for engaging in a legitimate business transaction?
As for allegations that he short-changed the women for services rendered, the Senator snorted, get real. I might pay $500 in New Jersey, but thats not a fair price in the Dominican Republic. When you adjust for the lower standard of living there and the fact that prostitution is not illegal I think everyone would have to agree that the $100 I gave each of them was very generous.
The Senator sought to differentiate his situation from that of a prostitution scandal involving the Presidents Secret Service in Colombia earlier this year.
The situations are not the same, he insisted. They worked for the President. Their actions reflected badly on their boss. They deserved to be fired. Im a senator. I have no boss. So, theres no one who can fire me. Menendez expressed confidence that this attempt by right-wingers to discredit my choice of recreational activities abroad wont derail my reelection bid. The voters of New Jersey know me. They know Im the one who can best represent their values in Washington.
Word is the underaged latinas are not complaining about being shortchanged by the cheap Senator. Seems they just got examined as part of the job-and find that after they lubed the Senator, they each got a bad case of STD........ in their nostrils. Now DR prosties are warning others about Menendez---calling him the Jersey Devil.
