New scandal surrounding New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez, sources tell DRUDGE.. Developing late from NY POST...
NY Post probably has the story embargoed until they update their website...I think after midnight..
The U.S. Constitution says that Senators are elected to terms that last six years, and Representatives to terms that last two years, so recall provisions in state constitutions can’t apply to members of Congress.
Correct, and this was litigated in Idaho in 1967 when some citizens of that state attempted to recall Sen. Frank Church. The federal court shut the recall effort down.
I’m going with a very LIVE girl with both courage and evidence.
That is correct, no U.S. senator from any state can be recalled (see my post above). State senators can be recalled, however, if their state constitution so allows.
There is video of him and Paula Deen swapping jokes.
They never have. Recall of Senators, Congressmen and the President has been a dead issue for over a hundred years.
The Senate may expel a sitting Senator with a 2/3 vote. Same for a sitting Congressman. A President much be impeached.
There are no other methods of removal available.
“NY Post probably has the story embargoed until they update their website...I think after midnight..”
Being owned by Rupert Murdoch, he would have embargoed the story until amnesty passed the Senate next week. I wonder if Drudge has now forced their hand....

Maybe he’s an illegal immigrant. :)
Another unconstitutional ruling by the Extreme Court.
” the voting blocs that decide elections in New Jersey wont give a damn”
Nah, Bob Menendez will play the victim card and the folks will rally around the Dem.
Say NOOB, save the insults for when you’ve been here ten years.
You’re absolutely right. Not every judicial decision in favor of a Democrat is a liberal conspiracy.
“Its either a live boy or a dead girl.”
A dead girl didn’t sink Ted Kennedy.
Constitutionally, the only ways a US Senator or Congressman can leave office is death, resignation or to be expelled by a two thirds vote or your respective house....
I thought it was pretty funny and ive been here far longer than 10 years.
If we see Menendez and Hernandez in a white ford bronco together you will know he was involved
