Poll: Do you think Sen. Menendez is the target of a smear campaign?
Jersey Journal ^

Posted on 01/31/2013 3:35:08 PM PST by SMGFan

Days before Sen. Robert Menendez, the former mayor of Union City, is to be installed as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee he is bogged down dealing with unsubstantiated accusations that he engaged in sex in the Dominican Republican with underage prostitutes.

Even the Washington-based organization that was first approached about the story said yesterday it had serious reservations about the source of the information and the story's veracity.

I was concerned about the timing, that this guy had had information regarding Menendez, he said, since as early as 2008 but was only coming forward the spring before Menendez’s election,” said Melanie Sloan, the executive director of the organization, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW).

Of course he is. It's part and parcel of the territory, you twit.

Of course it’s a smear campaign. He’s a Democrat. They do no wrong. If he was a Republican he’d already be declared guilty and punished!

I wonder if he tweets Anthony Weiner since we all know he was innocent! /s

It is a smear campaign being run out of the Obama White House. The purpose is the same as when Obama ran for Senate, only instead of a Republican standing in the way of an ambitious black candidate, it is a white Democrat standing in Cory Booker’s way.

Booker was going to run against Christie in order to set himself up for a 2016 run for POTUS, but after Hurricane Sandy, Christie was too popular to take on. Plan B is to get Menedez to step aside and let Cory take over his Senate seat.

Democrats think Booker or Cadillac Deval Gov of Mass would be shoo ins for POTUS should they get the nomination in 16. They think the secret formula is blacks at 96%, win the hispanics, and capture the youth.

Reminiscent of when they told Pete Rodino to get outta da way so that a black (Donald Payne) could take his congressional seat.

His campaign spot had him in the urban setting with children of coarse and he sez confidently that he still leaves in the same neiborhood he grew up in not far from here. Yeah right. Was he using or renting Charlie Rangles hidden hasienda in DR for his trists with underage prostitutes? The scummedia made a mention that “in DR prostitution is leagal” dont cha know! The rot runs deep

“I think he’s a pedophile.”

A pedophile is someone attracted to prepubescent children. I don’t think that has been alleged.

Christie appoints the senator. If he appoints a democrat you can say goodbye to Christie’s facade as a republican. But then the NJ Supreme Court might force Christie to appoint a democrat, and I am only half joking.

Of course it’s a smear campaign. Thing is Bob Menendez himself is behind the smear as a way to enhance his resume among Dems for bigger things down the road.

Question: "Poll: Do you think Sen. Menendez is the target of a smear campaign? "

Answer: No.

Comment: He is a politician and thus is far more vice ridden than any known classification of occupations. Any sane person knows that politicians are vice addicts by definition.

Dunno. I don’t think so, but this was the Nazi party’s favorite way to smear opponents, and, at least for ‘Pubbies, just the accusation would be catastrophic...

Let’s see, Senator Larry Craig ‘s toe-tapping was a legitimate news story while Menendez’s buying the use of poverty strickened girls to satisfy his lust is not a news story but a smear. I see now.

“I don’t think that has been alleged”.

Actually, I read several articles and none of them mentioned the girls age. It did say the “escort” service was named “dolly” something or other. The articles also mentioned he liked the new, young ones... so at this point, couldn’t they have been little girls? (or were they young teens?)

When the Post turns on a Democrat politician THAT IS NEWS!

Maybe I’m being naive, but I got the impression they were young teens.

“$58,500 for 2 sessions? That’s gotta’ be some perversion.”

That sum is what he paid after the fact to try and get off the hook for accepting plane rides illegally. Doesn’t seem to have had anything to do with the actual perversion.
