That’s possibly some serious cheese. It’s of course racist and bigoted serious cheese, but serious cheese nonetheless.
This is going to either be squashed in the next 72 hours or we’re looking at a major major once in a generation national scandal...
The Fanjul brothers own the resort where this occurred. They have entertained dozens and dozens of Senators and Congressmen at this resort.
We’re looking at a long term blackmailing of the nation’s leadership through hidden underage prostitution videotaping at Casa de Campo. Or not, but there are large paper trails on who has been to Casa de Campo in the last 20 years the Fanjuls have owned the resort.
Good catch. This could be it, follow the money.
Soon Menendez may discover that he has a pressing need to spend more time with his family. HA!
Another problem brewing for Menendez is that he is a very white Cuban who was probably doing an underaged black/mulatto Dominicana. There is alot of racism in the Hispanic communities...especially with what part of the Hispanic world you are from....Dominicans are really looked down upon in the Hispanic world
Good find, jaz.
NBC NEWS IS REPORTING: At a Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee hearing on the subject of doing business in Latin America held Aug. 1, 2012. Sen Menendez pressed for tighter security at Dominican Republican ports.
Menendez did not name it, but he pumped the company of campaign donor and prostitute procurer Dr Salomon Melgen (a Miami opthamologist looking to make big bucks in port security).
Menendez told US State Dept officials who were summoned to the hearing: You have another company that has American investors that is seeking to has a contract, actually, given to it by the, kind of ratified by, the Dominican Republic Congress to X-ray all of the cargo that goes through the ports, Menendez said.
Menendez later used his position to pressure the State Dept to advance the scheme----crassly using US govt authority and govt resources to benefit himself and a crony.
A spokesman for Menendez said his statement and his later calls to the State Department on behalf of Melgen were routine.
The National Legal and Policy Center watchdog group alleges Senator Menendez was promoting the financial interests of Dr. Melgens company, even though Melgen--- a Miami opthamologist has no background in port security.
PLAIN AS THE NOSE ON YOUR FACE Apparently, Menendez, Melgen and Dominican Republic federales colluded to cut a deal which would profit them hundreds of millions of dollars....with kickbacks and money laundering facilitating the deal.
If he did this as a private citizen, it would not be a crime---but Menendez is an elected official with the power of the purse. He used his elected office and US govt authority to benefit himself-the self-same reason Sen Harrison Williams went to jail.
I suggest Menendez start writing that resignation letter NOW.
