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.
(Snicker) Did Sen Menendez reveal anything about his son---- the parasite riding the govt fraud merry-go round at the Port Authority?
Sen Menendez' son is playing PA giddyap------Menendez' son doesn't even draw anything as mundane as a govt paycheck. His "job" is to make sure Daddy gets to ride the govt largesse horsies. Pols and their cronies are riding high. Round and round they go---where they stop nobody knows.
The Port Authority parasites have their own worry-free "Penn State Protection Plan." Relatives and cronies of the political class.......do-nothings and know-nothings----loot and pillage govt assets all day long w/ no worry about being caught.
Would Sen Menendez's son even get into the PA if his father wasn't a US Senator? One phone call to the Senator and the govt money starts raining down on the PA.
At Penn State---for years a child predator was protected by the PTB----aided and abetted by those around him. The reporter who broke the Penn State molestation story (who received a Pulitzer Prize) said Penn State was known as the "Kremlin" b/c reporters found it impossible to get any info on their activities.
Sen Menendez, answer the question. What does your son do at the PA? And how does Sonny Menendez, Jr support himself?
CONCLUSION The smirking Menendez releases his tax returns? Watta laugh. This guy knows only too well that the REAL money filters through his live-in's lobbying group.
"Live in's lobbying group?" Can you say conflict of interest?
HERE'S HOW THEY WORK THE LOBBYING SCAM: Anybody that wants the Senator's attention has to hire the gal pal's group. There, they are instructed where to send campaign contributions, and other tribute, to the smirking Senator......like sure-thing investment tips.
A look at Menendez's legislative initiatives might find a roadmap to (1) his campaign contributors, (2) the lobby income, (3) the investment portfolio held by the gal-pal.
And it's all out of sight of the voters....as the smirking Senator dutifully releases HIS measly tax returns to dupe the voters.
What did Menendez's gal pal pay taxes on? Hmmmmmmmm?
