Sen. Menendez Investigated for Sleeping with Underage Girls: Story Buried by ABC

Posted by Steve Markowitz on January 26, 2013

The dailycaller.com published an article about more sleaze in Washington, DC.  This time it is US Democratic Senator from New Jersey, Bob Menendez that got caught.  It seems the good Senator has a penchant for Dominican Republic prostitutes, with some alleged to have been only 16 years old, under the age of consent in the DR.

menedezThe Menendez matter came to light in early April 2012 when Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) was given information concerning the allegations.  According to reports, the FBI opened an inquiry in early August 2012 into the matter.  It is reported that the Senator made multiple sorties to the Republic with big time Democratic donor, Miami eye-doctor Salomon Melgen, and participated in booze and sex parties.

In addition to the allegations of the underage liaisons with underage girls, prohibited under the 2003 Protect Act, Menendez has other potential legal/ethics problems.  It is reported that he was provided with gratis transportation and lodging for some of the party trips that were not reported, as required by Senate rules.  Finally, while prostitution is legal in the Dominican Republic, Senatorial ethics rules prohibit members from engaging in acts that are illegal in the United States.  Well duh!!!!!

ABC News investigative producer Rhonda Schwartz got wind of the matter in early May, 2012, seven months before Menendez’s upcoming Senatorial election.  However, ABC decided not to publish the story.  Let’s see, a salacious story about a US Senator is not newsworthy?  Coincidence that this Senator involved is a liberal?  This is but proof that the mainstream media is no longer independent.  That is almost as scary as our current President trampling all over the Constitution.
