JERSEY CITY Saying he was the target of a yearlong "false smear campaign," U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez yesterday blasted a television news report that said he allegedly used his office to help campaign contributors.

Imagine the backdraft if Christie had whined about being the subject of a smear campaign.
But Menendez, like all liberals, will be given a pass and his actions will be lauded.
Sounds more like Dominican gonorrhea to me!
JUDICIAL WATCH REPORTED Its like a never-ending saga of political corruption and cronyism. In the last year alone, Menendez has been implicated in a number of serious crimesincluding escapades at a posh villa in the Dominican Republic w/ underage hookers and hiring an illegal latino to work in his Capitol Hill office who was a registered sex offender.
Now authenticated reports say the DOJ has launched a criminal probe into Menendez’s use of his official office on behalf of two Ecuadorian fugitives. The wealthy businessmen, William and Roberto Isaias, brothers who live comfortable in South Florida, were convicted of embezzling north of $660 million during Ecuador’s 1999 banking crisis. The brothers Filanbanco, and absconded to Miami with a stash as the bank collapsed.
Ecuador has repeatedly asked the U.S. for their extradition, but Uncle Sam has simply flipped the finger.
In fact, the Isaias case came up this past summer when VP Biden asked Ecuadoran President Rafael Correa to reject the asylum request of fugitive NSA leaker Edward Snowden. Biden said Snowden was a fugitive of American justice and didnt have a passport, Correa said in Ecuadors largest newspaper, El Telegrafo . I told him the Isaiases are fugitives of Ecuadoran justice and they also dont have passports and you wont extradite them. Correa added that the only difference is that the Isaiases have been sentenced.
It appears that the brothers have escaped Ecuadorian justice b/c of friends in high places. Sen Menendez, who represents NJ, wrote letters and made phone calls to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the State Department in support of the Florida brothers.
The former head of the FBI in New Jersey says the Menendez letters and calls were shocking.
Menendez sent a personal letter to Alejandro Mayorkas, then director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), asking that the fugitive siblings get full consideration and that DHS expedite its review.
Mayorkas, a Clinton federal prosecutor who resigned in shame after orchestrating the pardon of a major-league drug trafficker, has since been promoted to DHS Deputy Secy. (FR POSTED 1/24/14)
Politico reports 3/19/13 that Floridian Salomon Melgen airlifted Dem Majority leader Harry Reid (Dim-Nevada) on his private jet. NJ's Menendez is Melgen's errand boy---Booby will perform for cash. Floridian Melgen gave $700,000 to Nevadan Reid's PAC---Reid then poured money into NJ's Menendez's reelection campaign
Politico also got ahold of an exclusive photo the White House does not want you to see--- a beaming Obama w/ Melgen at his side.
At the time, Floridian Melgen co-hosted a 2009 fundraiser for the Dem's DSCC committee headed by NJ's Menendez.
MENENDEZ SUCKS-UP FOR ETHNIC SOLIDARITY Then in 2011, Floridian Melgen hosted a star-studded fundraiser at his Florida home for NJ's Menendez.....included retired Army Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez, then a Texas Senate candidate, and world-famous Mexican balladeer José José (who?).
ERRAND BOY NJ'S MENENDEZ INTERVENES On two occasions (that we know of), errand boy Menendez personally contacted top Medicare officials about an HHS ruling that Floridian Melgen owed $8.9 million for over-billing. Dual-citizen Melgen ranted about having to pay up---whined that HHS did not give him a hearing.
While Floridian Melgen was glad-handing politicians for business profits, he flaunted his wealth---chauffeur-driven in a customized Audi A8 and inviting politicians needing a lube job to his mansion in the Dominican Republic.
Melgen has a collection of photos with politicians including him golfing with Bill Clinton. Floridian Melgen bragged about using his plane to transport entertainment to a super PAC fundraiser at the DNC Convention last summer.
Florida resident Melgen tapped into NJ's Menendez's errand boy status at a political function in the early 1990s, when Menendez was in the House of Representatives. Over time, Foridian Melgen and his family donated nearly $1 million to NJ's Menendez and related committees. NJ's Menendez vacations frequently with Floridian Melgen in the villa Melgen owns in the Dominican Republic.

LYING-IN-WAIT Dominican Republic travel brochures recount how the cunning Dominican govt survives on billions of our tax dollars which its illegal residents located here send back home---all of them riding the US gravy train.
The do-nothing Caribbean Third World satrap is teeming with poverty. The do-nothing Dominican govt provides no social safety nets for needy citizenry. The connivers work the US system---quitely and secretly lying-in-wait---to maximize its iron grip on America's power centers.
DOMINICAN REPUBLIC MEDDLES IN US AFFAIRS---MOVING TO SAVE MENENDEZ It is an unconscionable travesty against representative democracy-- that the corrupt Dominican Republic meddling in US affairs---cooking the books offshore to help Menendez stay in power.
HOW DO YOU SAY QUID PRO QUO IN SPANISH? Clearly, a deal was made. IF (BIG IF) the Dominican Republic saves Menendez's degenerate a** (and prevents the dreaded Christie appointment), Obama will write the foreign aid check w/ plenty of zeros.
BOTTOM LINE Menendez has TWO governments protecting him----New Jerseyans have not even one government looking after our interests. The Gimme Zombies meddling marginalizes Americans, and undermines our political system.
Menendez can give Christie a lesson on how to avoid pitfalls of “scandal”.
Lesson 1: Be a Democrat. There is no lesson 2.
Menendez is bullet-proof.
No wonder they are offensive, got to cover for Obamacare and now Menedez, again. Easy to take everyone’s eye off the ball and silence and lawyer up your critics, i.e. Christie, Dinesh, and James O’Keefe. Maybe their was more going on w/ Christie and that walk on the beach with BHO that we know, maybe this Menendez seat is really important to him or Menendez is and the question then begs, why?
The smear campaign against Sen Menendez must stop. Eric Holder has to talk to whoever is instigating this in his department. I am certain he will. He is accused of consorting with underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic. He is, after all, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee. Just keeping up with foreign affairs. I am sure Salomon Melgen has a photo album containing all of Menendez’s activities. The DOJ does not have time for this. It has more important perps to prosecute. It time to stop the criminal activities of Dinesh D’Souza.
LOL at the squealing dirtbag.
Oh come on, remember this IS New Jersey! Comparatively, he’s probably as good as they’re gonna get.
