Women: Sen. Bob Menendez paid us
for sex in the Dominican Republic

Daily Caller, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 11/1/2012 8:09:52 AM

Two women from the Dominican Republic told The Daily Caller that Democratic New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez paid them for sex earlier this year. In interviews, the two women said they met Menendez around Easter at Casa de Campo, an expensive 7,000 acre resort in the Dominican Republic. They claimed Menendez agreed to pay them $500 for sex acts, but in the end they each received only $100. The women spoke through a translator in the company of their attorney, Melanio Figueroa.

The only thing worse than paying for these types of services is.... failing to pay for them.

So Menendez is the one Drudge was referencing with his 'teaser'. Hmmmmm--a Democrat--surely they don't pay for sex. Ask Teddy K or Dodd or Franks.

This first thing I wondered was if he was up for re-election, and of course, he is. I don't like these "surprises" regardless of party affiliation. He may be a rat, but to bring it out now, looks bad for the challenger. I say it will backfire.

New Jersey has enough to worry about right now. This will look petty and desperate.

Don't know what the "problem" is. Such "activity" is considered a resume enhancer by the demonrat party. In fact, I believe being a low-life-womanizing-loser is in the job description and a requirement to be a "senator" in the demonrat party.

Sarcasm -- big time!!

Why Governor Christi was kissing some butt yesterday -- wasn't he? Wonder what the cost of that piece of political maneuvering was -- eh????

After the way the Governor of NJ acted the last two days, in blessing the G_D -like President for doing the job he is hired to do, the whole thing plain stinks. While Christie was kissing Obama's butt, many 1000's of people were stuck, stranded, decimated, you name it. If the two egomaniacs could get off TV and do their jobs,
people might have a chance to get their lives back together sooner. Their burlesque act make me sick to my stomach. I don't muck like the mayor of NYC but at least he had the common sense to tell the President NO, stay away, and take care of your job from D>C>, the way you are supposed to. The way the NJ Governor acted was unbelievable, especially when other states are in desperate straits also. Bipartisanship ship my butt. Obama has none in his DNA. Christie acted like a fool,in my opinion. He should go take lessons from the Governor of Lousiana, who knows how to conduct himself, and be a leader.

According to this web site http://gocaribbean.about.com/od/healthandsafety/a/Caribbeansex_2.htm prostitution is legal in the DR and since Menendez isn't married where's the scandal? The possibility that he ripped off the ladies of the evening might make him look bad, but that's what democrats do, look bad.

Were this a republican senator, his fellow party members would ask him to resign.

But, being a democrat, this is a resume enhancer for Menendez.

This illustrates the different value system of the dems v. GOP.

It's a little late for an 'October surprise', but what the heck.

This guy is a weasel-faced RAT!
On his Wiki entry, there's a whole list of "controversies" he's been involved with.
And I just love this: "A poll released by CBS and the New York Times in 2006 asked participants to name the first thing that came to their minds when hearing Menendez's name: the top answer given was “corruption” or “crooked”."

#12, you're kidding, right?

Who is this little gnat? I wouldn't recognize him if I passed him on the street. His photo, though, reminds me of Jim Bakker, the TV preacher who scandalized the nation many years back.

I’m sure he had simply and inadvertently drawn down his “hooker” account below the level of his last transaction and he just didn’t have enough cash to pay the girls. Easily fixed with an immediate deposit. Now move on, nothing more to see here . . . I mean for goodness sake couldn’t anybody have made this innocent mistake?

I do not like this type of politics-bringing out accusations right before the election. I don't know anything about this fellow-or whether their is truth to it or not. It's easy to make up a story & hope it sticks-the Dems have been doing it for years!
As to whether it would affect the election-I can't imagine that it would. Democrats seem to expect this from their leaders, how else would you explain Bill Clinton, Ted Kennedy, Barney Frank, etc.

If it were close, it might put Joe Kyrillos (a good man, but didn't ace it in the one critical debate) over the top, but Menendez has something like a 20 point lead, and the corrupt NJ media has squashed any mention of this.

In re #18, Christie was hugging Obie for dollars...lots of dollars. I guess you do what you got to do when you need lots of money even if you have to do it on camera.

Meanwhile, back at the Menendez scandal, I guess the two women should consider accepting a Visa or master card next time Bobby boy goes down for another "fix"?

I'm with you #28. Where's the scandal. This activity only started a couple of weeks ago..., er millenia ago. And, this isn't the first time claims have been made that were not the original agreement in this industry.

Also, a guy who shoots and kills his wife and three others in a hair salon and injures several more is an "alleged" assailant. A guy with a couple tons of dope in a truck is an "alleged" trafficer. Yet this guy positively stiffed these girls for $400 bucks. Strange someone joker just now found them. I wonder if he coughed up his $400 or did he stiff them also.

Whoopi Goldberg — an admitted medical marijuana user who smokes from a vaporizing pen to relieve the pain of glaucoma — is going to be putting her pot knowledge to good use, taking on regular columnist duties for The Denver Post as its cannabis expert. Her first column, including the pros of smoking from a “tape pen,” made its debt on Thursday, the New York Post reported. In it, she explained how marijuana actually helps with the pressure and pain of glaucoma and that using a vaporizing pen — rather than rolling a joint or breathing from a bong —

WASHINGTON — The mysterious American plane that landed at an airport in Tehran belongs to an overseas client, the bank that acts as a trustee for the plane confirmed on Friday. Scott Nielsen, an executive at the Bank of Utah, which according to FAA databases owns the plane, said that the executives had been trying to reach the real owners but “This is an overseas customer and they don’t operate under the same hours as we do.” Clients “can be an American they can not be one,” Nielsen said. “The service is used by all kinds of people for a

A lawyer who specializes in sex abuse cases says this week´s lawsuit against director Bryan Singer is but one of several Hollywood abuse cases that will come to light in the coming weeks. Today we learned of a suit against Bryan Singer, the director of the upcoming superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past and a big Democratic donor, charging he drugged and sexually abused a 15-year-old boy back in 1999. Singer´s legal team denies the charges. Lawyer Jeff Herman, who is representing the plaintiff, cautions Wednesday´s suit isn´t an isolated incident. Herman works as a sexual abuse attorney who previously sued

One rainy morning this month, the man who thought he would be president boarded a train near his beach house in San Diego. He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office. Looking and sounding like a president out of central casting, he nailed his lines. The crew called him “one-take Romney,” and before he departed, they swarmed, extending arms around his shoulders and angling their iPhones for

Pope breaks rules as he washes feet of

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

What are the odds? I mean, Vladimir Putin does a call-in show and one guy who happens to get through—to ask a question in English—is Ed Snowden? That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services. Detroit is facing

Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

President Obama today sought to make light of a stinging public rebuke from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who took the president to task for disparaging GOP lawmakers while seeking to make a deal on immigration reform. Obama, the No. 2 House leader said yesterday after a phone conversation with the president, should “stop his partisan messaging and begin to seriously work with Congress.” Hours before the president called Cantor, the White House had issued a statement in which Obama ripped House Republicans for favoring “extreme measures” and “seemingly preferring the status quo of a broken immigration system over meaningful reform.” “You’re always

As everyone knows, Brandeis publicly announced that they would award Ayaan Hirsi Ali an honorary doctorate--and then, under siege by nearly 30% of their professors, and by thousands of their own students, they publicly disinvited Hirsi Ali. This campaign was orchestrated by the Muslim Student Association and by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization which is the American face of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. Someone sent author Naomi Wolf a copy of my latest article about this scandal: “Brandeis Feminists Fail the Historical Moment.” It was my response to Brandeis’s shameful dis-invitation of Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics.

Like Rocky in the early rounds, the new Common Core math and reading standards are being pummeled left and right. From the left: Education icon Diane Ravitch says the Common Core represents a “utilitarian view of education” that is too focused on testing, data, and accountability. From the right, “ObamaCore” is denounced as federal intrusion. Heritage Foundation education fellow Lindsey Burke calls it “an effort to impose a uniform, standardized curriculum across the country.” From the further right, the always

For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was the notion that Obama´s speech,

Mr. Brooks expanded on Sen. Bob Corker’s earlier comments on “Fox News Sunday” that Mr. Obama is “creating an air of permissiveness” with regards to Russia. (Snip) “And let’s face it, Obama, whether deservedly or not, does have a — I’ll say it crudely — but a manhood problem in the Middle East,” he continued.
