Where’s the senator?

A day after allegations swirled that he cavorted with underage hookers in the Dominican Republic, Sen. Robert Menendez played a cat-and-mouse game with reporters.

The camera crews parked outside the New Jersey Democrat’s office Thursday never got a glimpse of him.

The usually accessible senator managed to avoid reporters almost all day, even as he cast six Senate votes and attended a lunch with Vice President Biden and other Democrats to talk about gun control.

The Daily News finally caught up with Menendez as he ducked into an out-of-the-way Capitol elevator with visitors from New Jersey. But he was tight-lipped.

Thank gawd there was no “toe tapping” involved.

That would be serious enough for the MSM to report on it...

NOT

Menendez who? Underage prostitutes? Free flights to the Dom Rep for sex tourism?

Nothing’s going to happen. A few conservatives might get worked up. Talk radio will hyperventilate. If he was a conservative or republican, this would be the biggest story in the country and he would already have resigned in shame. However, he’s a lib, a dem, and a minority so there’s nothing to report and no shame to be felt. The average voter knows more about what Jennifer Anniston had for lunch than this. In six months, this will be old news so he’ll never have to talk about it. In six years, he’ll be re-elected by a comfortable margin. And the decline goes on...

Menendez was among the first to call for the firing of those SS agents who diddled prostitutes. Will he heed his own call? Fat chance.

So he’s giving them the Anthony Wiener treatment!!!

Remember how focused little Anthony Wiener was whenever he was asked about his goings on? And how indignant he was that he should be asked about such things when he was so focused on conducting, “the people’s work.”

Putz upon putz there in DC!

Menendez must be pretty crafty to force those ‘journalists’ to not ask hooker related questions. Is he telepathic?

Doesn’t really matter. Christie will definitely appoint a Democrat to the seat if needed. His ongoing, sycophantic relationship with Obama is perverse.

The difference is that Menendez has to pay underage prostitutes for the same service he gets for free from journalists. Oh, and the latter swallows anything.

He has lost all credibility. His judgement is suspect, he can no longer serve the people of New Jersey.
Menendez must resign.
