The Senator has visited this hotel, the same hotel, 20 times, a 5-star resort. The resort is owned by two sugar barrons, two brothers. They grow many, many acres of sugar. Question? Did the gifts from the sugar barons, the plastic surgeon [provided the private jet to the Dominican Republic] influence any of his votes. He did vote on sugar price supports...Editor's comment - Like 90% of sex scandals involving elected officials, it's not the sex that gets them ultimately; it's all the illegal contributions, failure to disclose, and missed reporting that nails 'em.

Menendez cast votes on agricultural subsidies.
