Cronies: Sen. Menendez pushed bill that may have benefited top donor and private jet-lender

Not just any top donor, either. Funnily enough, it is the donor whose private jet Sen. Menendez (D-N.J.) used for his trips to the Dominican Republic. Trips that reportedly involved underage prostitutes.

More from Jammie Wearing Fool:

In a stunning coincidence, it’s the same guy who allegedly provided the underage prostitutes to the sleazebag New Jersey Democrat. A few weeks ago Robert Menendez said those making accusations against him were nameless, faceless evil right-wingers. Well, this is the Associated Press, no bastion of right-wingers.

Yep, the Associated Press:

As Jammie Wearing Fool points out, AP was quick to note there is no evidence, yet.

There is no evidence that Menendez offered direct help or intervened on behalf of the company or Melgen. Instead, the connection between the two men’s interests in natural gas is the latest example of the close symmetry between the senator — who recently rose to become chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee — and his millionaire backer. It illustrates the way Menendez’s political clout has at times overlapped with Melgen’s financial investments.

But even they admit that the connection cannot be ignored. Twitter users agree.

Heh. But, remember, he has a (D) next to his name! So, will it be more of this?:

Hey, Senator Reid, still expressing “confidence” that Sen. Menendez did nothing wrong? And, in an unbelievably ironic twist, Sen. Menendez is just back from a trip wherein he spoke to Afghanistan leaders about … government corruption.

Menendez, heal thyself.

    When a democrat supports drilling, there is always hookers involved.

      Ted Kennedy was a big fan of offshore drilling.

    Most Republicans could probably also teach foreign despots about corruption, but no one can teach it as if it’s a noble calling quite like a Democrat.

    The people who should be the most outraged about this fella are Democrats. That’s the problem with politics today. Too many people treat politicians like sports figures, ready to absolve them of their
    “little lapses of judgment” as if, in this case,Menendez is three hits shy of 3,000. Credit to those Democrats calling for his resignation. No matter which party we support, none of us should shield abuses of power, left OR right.

    We need a lobby that hands out underage hookers to get meaniful financial legislation passed in Washington.

  • Patrick Dennehy

    *Waiting for lib to come in this thread* “Republican’s involved in just as many scandals”…

    Totally unscientific and unsubstantiated but just looking at his face and hearing him speak…this guy is a total scum bag. There is something off about him, that’s probably why Dem’s vote for him. The more amoral/unconscionable the better.

  • dinkerduo

    The people who should be the most angry are the parents of the children who are being forced into prostitution! If Bob Menendez had sex with ANY CHILD he should be impeached immediately and charged and if found guilty–jailed!
    IT’S TIME TO STOP THIS CRAP!! And by the way—if it involves a sex organ—then it’s sex!!
