YOUR DAILY MENENDEZ

A new feature here at LR: News round-up of stories surrounding America's favorite underage foreign Hooker solicitor

PHILLY INQUIRER

From the Philadelphia Inquirer Philly.com:
In the e-mails an FBI agent says that most of [whistle-blower] Peter Williams’ information is true... he had information about Menendez’s visits to see prostitutes in 2008...

the raid Tuesday has blown the issue into the open. It comes just as Menendez assumes a prominent role in Washington, as one of a handful of Senators pushing for immigration reform and the likely chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Menendez’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment Wednesday morning. Separately, a North Jersey man pleaded guilty Tuesday to steering $21,400 of illegal campaign contributions to Menendez on behalf of the donor's politically-connected brother.
JAY LENO LATE-NIGHT CBS

From Jay Leno's nightly show, via Newsbusters:
JAY LENO: Well, in more serious news, the FBI investigating New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez for allegedly soliciting Dominican prostitutes. So, once again, foreign workers doing the jobs Americans don't want to do, right? [Laughter and applause]
LOCAL BROWARD COUNTY, FLA. COVERAGE

From BrowardNetonline.com, "West Palm Beach Doc Caught in Senate Sex Scandal":
A successful West Palm Beach eye doctor saw his West Palm Beach offices raided by FBI agents last night in a mushrooming U. S. Senate sex scandal.

Ophthalmologist Salomon Melgen, who also has clinics in Wellington, Port St. Lucie and Delray Beach, is believed to have offered free trips and procured underage prostitutes in his native Dominican Republic for U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez, a prominent Democratic Party leader who represents New Jersey.

PolitickerNJ.com, "As Menendez assumes powerful chairmanship, troubles mount":
Allegations that U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez solicited underage prostitutes during trips to the Dominican Republic are roiling the political landscape today as sharks - in the form of Menendez's enemies - begin to circle.

But the unproven allegations are not the only issue troubling the New Jersey senator as he assumes the chairmanship of the Powerful Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Yesterday, Benedetto Bigica, 45, admitted in federal court that he and his brother Joseph Bigica, funneled $21,400 in illegal contributions to Menendez's campaign. That guilty pleas follows one from Bigica's brother Joseph last May to steering more than $100,000 in illegal contributions to Menendez.
Editor's note - We will continue to ride the NJ senator's ass until he resigns. Most especially because Menendez opposes legalized prostitution. Last summer during the Secret Service scandal in Columbia Menendez harshly criticized those agents caught in the prostitution ring. (photo credits - freebeacon.com, caribbean.net)
