feeding at the trough
Menendez is frequently airborne w/ a tented newspaper on his lap (/snix)---and spends mucho time and US govt resources helping out non-constituent Melgen---leaving precious little time and resources to defend the people who elected him.
Menendez apparently never even raised a finger to help Jerseyans devastated by Sandy.
Indicative of Menendez's problems is that his major donor and supporter is not even a Jersey resident. Priapic Bob's sucking up to foreign countries/citizens and his offshore activities and business interests raise serious questions as to whether Booby is even interested in defending the United States and its citizens. There is more here than meets the eye WRT Menendez/Melgen's cozy relationship.
Menendez is a permanent stain on the political landscape. The spot remover slogan comes to mind: "Out, out, dratted spot."
