Pretty hard to serve as a US Senator if you’re behind bars. You can’t exactly phone it in.
If he’s convicted and sentenced to time in prison and the Rats do not vote to remove him, the people of NJ will be short of representation.
Hmmm. Pass a law the Dems don't like without Menendez' vote and watch the Dems try to get the law overturned based on an unequal representation of the people in NJ. Or something like that.
