Inquirer: Bribery case against Sen. Bob Menendez and friend an 'attack' on Hispanics, defense says https://t.co/dooJWab8ZE

Well good luck with that.
Here’s how the defense is alleging the government’s case against Sen. Menendez is an “attack on Hispanics”:
The federal government’s bribery case against U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez and a Florida doctor is an “attack” on Hispanic-Americans, a defense attorney said Thursday in court here.
Menendez, a New Jersey Democrat, and ophthalmologist Salomon Melgen are “part of a fellowship of Hispanic-Americans,” including entrepreneurs, businessmen, doctors, and politicians, whose goal was to “pay it forward, help young Hispanic-Americans improve their lives” and “play a larger role in American society,” Melgen’s defense attorney Kirk Ogrosky told jurors in his opening statement.
Time will tell if the jury buys that as much as Menendez hopes they do.
Just can't make this shit up!

As a Hispanic, I hold Public leaders to an even higher standard. If the senator is found guilty, I'll see HIM as an attack to all of us!!

As you might recall, on the first day of Menendez’s trial, the judge told a member of the N.J. senator’s defense team to “shut up.”
