Controversial Donor Melgen Tied to LA Mayor
Free Beacon ^ | 2/5/13 | Mary Lou Byrd

A new connection has emerged between Los Angeles Mayor Anthonio Villaraigosa and the eye doctor at the center of controversy surrounding Sen. Bob Menendez (D., NJ).

The Washington Free Beacon found Villaraigosa pictured alongside both Menendez and controversial donor Salomon Melgen at a gala honoring the Democratic mayor. The National Association of Latino Electoral and Appointed Officials (NALEO) honored Villaraigosa last February in Washington D.C.

A photographer from the doctor’s company, VOXXI, captured photos of Melgen with several prominent Democrats, including Villaraigosa. Melgen is the chairman of the board of VOXXI.

HERE'S WHAT SEN MENENDEZ AND DR MEGLEN DO NOT WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC:

(a) The DR is an impoverished Caribbean nation notorious for corrupt governments and strong-arm dictators.

(b) Despite US politicans' fondness for the "amenities" at its numerous posh resorts, and US celebrities relaxing at posh villas spending big bucks there, the DR has no safety net or state-sponsored job creation for its largely impoverished citizenry.

(c) The one million Dominican citizens currently living in the US send home about a billion dollars annually---which is considered by the corrupt do-nothing DR govt to be a major source of state revenue.

(d) A steady exodus leaves for US shores lured by the endless US gravy train---encouraged by the govt---and the prospect of millions more sent back home.

(e) Sen Menendez's business partners in the Dominican govt have cunnningly figured out the financial benefits to be derived from amnesty---establishing a permanent Dem majority of Third World "pressure groups" exchanging votes for foreign aid.

==============================================

IMPOVERISHED COUNTRIES W/ CITIZENS IN THE US: Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominica Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico (stateside), Salvador, Spain, Uruguay, Venezuela.

WHAT IS THE DOLLAR AMT OF REVENUE FOREIGN GOVTS ARE RECEIVING FROM THEIR LOYALISTS LIVING OFF US TAXPAYERS?

WHAT IS THE SCOPE OF FINANCIAL DEALS US politicians wil exchange for yes votes on amnesty?

The National Association of Latino Electoral and Appointed Officials, La Raza, and The Congressional Hispanic Caucus (pushing free-for-all amnesty) needs to come clean WRT sub rosa deals they've made with foreign governments.

C’mon! Nothing will happen to either. This is clearly not sociopathic enough to cause these guys any political harm. In fact, this could be a resume’ enhancer. Think Clinton, Ted Kennedy, Barney Frank, Gerry Studds...

Isn’t Villaraigosa popular enough without trying to give him this boost? This is worth extra points in the perverted world of dems.

Did Mayor Villaraigosa---and other latino candidates--- receive help from Harry Reid?

BACKSTORY Sen Menendez won 2012 reelection handily---with some 58% of the vote. A good part of Menendez's his reelection was due to the financial and campaign support he received from Majority PAC, a “super PAC” set up by former aides to Senator Harry Reid (D-Nevada).

As the Menendez campaign entered its final weeks, the Reid PAC poured a hefty $582,500 into New Jersey to support Mr. Menendez’s re-election.

BY THE WAY One of the Reid PAC's biggest donors? Menendez Dominican pal and business partner---Dr. Salomon Melgen. Melgen's "company" donated $700,000 to the Reid PAC between June and October.

===========================================

(Cackle) Just more of those "annoying right-wing factoids" getting in the way of politicians' wet dreams of offshore non-stop sex-----not to forget Obama's legacy dreams: a permanent Democrat majority via amnesty.

Good catch, Liz. Also I think liberal elites will 'cover' for Menendaz. If the FBI doesn't have pictures they're going to be screwed over by the liberal establishment.

IMHO Hobama and CapitolHill Dems pushing for amnesty is little more than "penis envy" (cackle).

"Priapic Bob" is getting it on regularly w/ kiddies in the Dominican Republic.

We know "Amnesty is for the children" (sob).

Hobama and the Dems are hot (excuse the expression) to amnestize the million Dominicans now living in the US.....many of them are just kids.

Amnesty and penis envy. Perfect together---like Bill and Monica.

ROTFL
