FBI investigating allegations Sen. Menendez patronized prostitutes in Dominican Republic
Washington Post ^ | February 15, 2013 | Carol D. Leonnig and Peter Wallsten

A team of FBI agents has been conducting interviews in recent weeks in the Dominican Republic and the United States, looking into allegations that Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) patronized prostitutes in the Caribbean nation, but has found no evidence to support the claim, according to two people familiar with the investigation.

One person said agents have asked about whether a Florida eye doctor — a close friend and major campaign donor to Menendez — provided the senator with prostitutes on vacations there. Another person said investigators are looking into allegations involving underage prostitutes and sex parties.

The two, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an active investigation, said FBI agents are following leads provided by an unknown tipster. In a series of e-mails with the FBI, the tipster alleged that the doctor, Salomon Melgen, had made prostitutes available to Menendez while he was staying at his friend’s resort home in the Dominican Republic. The tipster, in particular, mentioned young prostitutes and prostitution parties.

The FBI agents are also examining the role Menendez played in advocating for a port security contract in the Dominican Republic that would benefit Melgen, two people familiar with the case said.

If they offer Melgen a small enough sentence so he won't flip they can save Menendez. The FBI is down there so they can say, “Hey there's NOTHING to this. We stopped at every cat house in town and couldn't find one girl who knew Menendez, but we'll keep looking until it gets warm up north and we can come home.”
In other words this is pure show biz to save Menendez.

The same FBI “investigators” who made it to Benghazi 3 weeks after the attack, and spent 15 minutes on scene.

“Nothing here. Next case.”

I agree, the Holder/Obama DOJ is 100% political.

"A team of FBI agents has.......found no evidence"

Surprise, surprise! How much do you think it would cost to pay off some 16 year old chick who accepts 200 bucks to have sex with some old fool from the US?

This has to be read with skepticism-—the FBI does not comment on ongoing investigations. OTOH—why don’t we read more about Menendez’s dirty deeds?

Because.....Senor Bob has been very astute in labeling all charges raised against him as “right-wing.” In liberal/land, “right-wing” is code for horrid things like “religious judgementalism,” “moral certitude,” “pious negativism.”

Sexual charges are especially immune from penalty——the US has been transformed into the “fully fornicating society”-—thanks to tax-funded Planned Parenthood’s genital-sniffing activities in our school K-12.

The Obama/Menendez crowd see themselves as a tight-knit clique bound together by “enlightened values” — those of reason, tolerance, diversity, equality. Remember that Obama campaigned on a “better life, of hope and change.”

To paraphrase their intellectual mentor, author, Saul Alinsky, “They do not have a fixed truth — truth to them is relative and changing..... they are free from the shackles of dogma.” (from his book Rules for Radicals)

Course one might observe all that “reason, tolerance, diversity and equality” sounds an awful lot like the “People’s Temple.” Jim Jones, too, promised a “better life of hope and change” to the diverse crowd that blindly followed him to a place from which there was no escape.
