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.

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.

They may be good at making movies, but Hollywood celebrities’ lifestyles are far from an environmentalist’s dream. Their globetrotting, multiple mansion owning ways are inconsistent with the environmental agenda they loudly promote. Showtime’s new climate change series, “Years of Living Dangerously,” premiered April 13, 2014, slightly more than a week before Earth Day 2014. It relies on several wealthy, Hollywood celebrities to spread fear about climate change. While these actors and directors talk a lot about reducing carbon footprints and saving the world, they haven’t given up their own enormous mansions and private jets.

Some time in the coming months, the Supreme Court will hand down its opinion in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby, the case of the retailer that claims that its religious freedom or that of its employees is violated by contraceptive coverage required as part of the Affordable Care Act. The attitude of the health-care act’s supporters toward such cases is irritation. How dare a little religious case trip up the mighty Affordable Care Act and jeopardize the ACA’s establishment as permanent law of the land? Cases involving religious details, however, do have a way of stopping big social legislation, and not only

Going Negative On Affirmative Action

The good news about yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling is that it affirmed the right of the people to ban racial preferences in university admissions. The bad news is that it didn´t go further. In 2003, the Court handed down two landmark decisions: Gratz v. Bollinger and Grutter v. Bollinger. Taken together, the cases struck down a racial quota system used in admissions at the University of Michigan, but allowed for more limited race-based preferences. As Kevin Mooney pointed out, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor said in the Grutter decision that voters have the last say on affirmative action regimes. So the people of

Today is Earth Day. Fox News’ The Five opened its show with a nearly 15 minute segment titled “Earth Day Hysteria.” The goal appeared to be to prove that scientists’ warnings about climate change are overblown and should be ignored if not outright mocked and co-host Eric Bolling was the ringleader of the effort. But he found an adversary in Bob Beckel, who challenged the status quo by presenting actual data on the rise of CO2 levels from NASA, of all places.

The Republican National Committee has released a brutal memo on Senate majority leader Harry Reid, savaging him for repeatedly lying. The memo, under the name of press secretary Kirsten Kukowski, is titled "Nothing’s Too Unethical for Harry Reid." "Harry Reid is having a bad month," the memo begins. "He was caught funneling campaign money to his relatives. His Senate Majority PAC was caught lying to voters. And he was caught hypocritically accepting money tied to people he calls ´un-American.´ As he desperately clings to power, is there anything Harry Reid won’t do to promote his own self interests?"

The top Republicans in the Illinois Legislature are pushing back against Democrats´ plan to offer $100 million in taxpayer money to lure President Obama´s presidential library to Chicago, arguing the cash-strapped state can´t afford the investment. Minority Leader Jim Durkin said in a prepared statement released Monday that the state cannot afford the proposal when Illinois owes $7 billion in overdue bills and has a $100 billion deficit in its employee pension programs.

The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) announced stiff sanctions today against the team doctor, the team coach and the team trainer for cyclist Lance Armstrong, saying that they were all involved in a “conspiracy to commit widespread doping” over many years and with many riders. The decision was rendered by a three-member, independent panel of the American Arbitration Association North American Court of Arbitration for Sport. The full announcement is here. It imposed a 10-year ban on Johan Bruyneel, the team director, and eight-year bans for the doctor, Pedro Celaya, and the trainer, Jose “Pepe” Martí, as the result of their roles in

"What the climate justice movement is demanding is the ultimate abolition of fossil fuels," writes MSNBC´s Chris Hayes in a lengthy new call for action against global warming. To drive home the point, Hayes´ piece, published in The Nation, is titled "The New Abolitionism," and its message is that a way must be found to "convince or coerce" the world´s energy companies and energy-producing nations to give up the multi-trillion dollar business of powering the planet. Once the fossil fuels regime has been destroyed, it will be replaced with -- well, that is the subject for another article. Comparing anti-fossil fuels

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Steve Huber, an affable salesman who is still paying off an unexpected medical bill, was not among the millions of Americans who signed up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act during the enrollment period that ended March 31. After seeing television ads for Kentucky’s new online insurance marketplace, Mr. Huber, 57, made several attempts to explore the website but found it too complicated. Moreover, his income has dropped in recent years, he said, and he felt certain that he could not afford coverage. So he never priced plans or researched whether he qualified for financial assistance. “I

When it comes to immigration, many Republican members of the House have long distrusted their leader, Speaker John Boehner. Now, things have gotten even worse. Boehner has assured members who oppose comprehensive immigration reform that nothing will be done on the issue until the Obama administration "can be trusted to enforce our laws." Given the average GOP Congressman´s view of Barack Obama, that means "never." That´s certainly how many members interpreted the speaker´s words.

Vice President Joe Biden is warning his Democratic base to drop the apathy and pledge to vote in the fall midterms or see the administration´s achievements like Obamacare get sunk by a Republican majority in the House and Senate. He headlined his latest scare-mail “If we lose,” and warned that the GOP will pass the tough budget authored by Rep. Paul Ryan, and repeal Obamacare. “If Republicans hold on to their majority in the House and win back control of the Senate in November -- and believe me, that´s a real possibility -- then I can guarantee you that we´ll

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

He previously has said he´ll make a decision on whether to run for president before the end of this year, making clear that he was considering the possibility. But his comments on Wednesday appeared to be more direct. Asked what his "immediate plans" were, he said, according to an attendee: "I´m thinking about running for president."

WASHINGTON -- In a dissent to Tuesday’s Supreme Court ruling upholding Michigan’s voter-approved ban on affirmative action programs in its public colleges, Justice Sonia Sotomayor speaks from experience about the complex impact of such programs on her own life. Sotomayor’s 58-page dissent, joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, has one theme: Race matters. (Snip) She takes a dig at Chief Justice John Roberts who wrote once, “The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discrimination on the basis of race.” Sotomayor says: “It is a sentiment out of touch with reality.” Sotomayor says, “Race matters.
