You say Menendez

You say Menendez

I have not been following the Robert Menendez scandal very closely.

But Robert Stacy McCain is all over the story like a U.S. Senator on a Dominican prostitute. Oh wait, bad analogy.

The mainstream media is being dragged kicking and screaming to the story, much like it was dragged kicking and screaming to the Larry Craig and Mark Foley stories.  If there’s anything the media hates it’s a sex scandal which could bring down a Republican.  Oh wait.

Politico wonders if Menendez can survive.  Of course he can, unless there is videotape.  Otherwise, you’re likely to get this:

“Drag a hundred-dollar bill through a Dominican trailer park, you never know what you’ll find.”

Menendez did not have sexual relations with that underage Dominican prostitute, not even once.

Update:  Matthew Boyle and Michael Partick Leahy of also are on the case.

come on, gang,chill out and give the guy a break
actually, he was selflessly providing jobs for the underprivileged and downtrodden in a third world nation.
he was “doing it for the children”
never mind that it was at the same time he was “doing it TO the children”

You say Menendez

I say toMAto. Sounds like we have another “is, is” coming about.

“Menendez did not have sexual relations with that underage Dominican prostitute, not even once.”

I guess it all depends on what the meaning of “have” is–

“But Robert Stacy McCain is all over the story like a U.S. Senator on a Dominican prostitute.”

Well, interestingly, so are the New Joisey papers!

Seems someone failed to hoist the “circle the wagons” signal…

or the people there know this is a real story that really reeks of different KINDS of corruption.

Wonder who Christy will appoint…

    As long as the WH-controlled MSM do not pick up on it and run hard with it, Menendez is safe. Any prosecution will have to be Federal, as it is Federal laws that have been broken. When is the last time that a Federal crime by a Democrat has been prosecuted by the Democrats?

    As far as who Christie will appoint to the seat, if you are cynical enough to understand reality:

    1) keep in mind that Christie, though nominally Republican, attached himself at the hip to Obama at the end of the 2012 campaign.

    2) that he really, really wants to stay the governor of New Jersey.

    3) that he is facing one particularly difficult challenger.

    4) I am given to understand that New Jersey election laws are as convoluted as possible so as to give the governor and the [usually reliable] Democrat machine the greatest possible leeway, so that Christie can delay an election for his Senate appointee till November 2014, coincident with the governor’s election.

    5) say hello to Senator Cory Booker, D-NJ. In return, the Democrats will promise not to run hard against him. They lie, but Institutional Republicans will always believe anything a Democrat says.

    I see McCain claims to have named Menendez as the target on 31 OCT, before the Daily Caller broke the story. I don’t see anything original from him since.

    He is linking all the other reports, but is that what we mean when we say someone is “all over the story” now?

I’ll take “Likely Comments by James Carville” for $ 400 please, Alex.

Menendez is the current Chairman of the United States Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. A guy can’t do a little outreach for his country?

Put a “R” after his name, and maybe the American MSM will pay attention.

But since its a “D”, they know they can get away with anything and everything.

You say Menendez. You say Melgen.

I say Mengele.

If using the power and influence of your office to fly overseas for underage prostitutes is wrong, then I don’t know what’s right anymore.

    Slight edit:

    If using the power and influence of your office to fly overseas for underage prostitutes WHILE ALSO BEING PAID OFF BY THE PIMP IN CASH CAMPAIGN DONATIONS FOR HELPING THE PIMP STEAL MONEY FROM A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT is wrong, then I don’t know what’s right anymore.

    You can’t leave out that he was being paid well to screw little girls. The sacrifices Democrats make in the name of public service …

      Look, when Democrats are involved, a sliding scale of morals and ethics is employed. Is this really such a big deal compared to what Republcians have done? In 1892 a man in Cleveland OH was convicted of molesting kids. He was a registered Republican. I mean, c’mon.

DIT DIT DIT DIT DIT… This just in….

AP – US Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Chairman of the Senate Foreigh Relations Committee, revealed in a Capitol Hill press conference today that his office, in cooperation with a medical professional in Florida, has been conducting a secret investigation into the horrors of underage prostitution and human trafficking, focusing primarily on the Dominican Republic where the youngest and freshest females are pressed into prostitution. Senator Menendez deflected questions on whether the revelation of his secret investigation was related to emerging stories questioning his ethics as regards young prostitutes, stating, “look, if you want to make an omelette, you’ve got to break some eggs, and that means our investigation went directly to the heart of the problem, so no apologies there, and there is nothing to explain.”

    I. Kid. You. Not.

    U.S. Rep. Albio Sires today defended Sen. Robert Menendez and presented an unusual theory why the senator finds himself battling lurid accusations.

    “I won’t even be surprised if somehow the Cuban government is involved in this to try to damage Bob Menendez because he’s been so steadfast against the Castro government. He’s been a critic all his political life,” Sires said in a phone interview. “I would not be surprised if they are behind some of this stuff, some of these allegations. The Dominican Republic has a lot of relationships with Cuba.”

    Sires, who like Menendez (D-N.J). is Cuban-American, succeeded him in the House when Menendez was elevated to the Senate.

He is a Democrat. All he needs to do is come out and say that this is all nonsense because he is a Gay-American.

He will be cheered as a brave hero having the courage to come out of the closet that the evil homo-phobic Republicans have kept him all of his life.

[…] askin’ questions. As Professor Jacobson says, I’m “all over the story like a U.S. Senator on a Dominican pros… Expect more, […]

the torches-and-pitchforks crowd is wailing about ‘perverts’ and ‘pedophiles’ based on one person (ostensibly a pimp) saying that one of the sex workers MAY have been underage…not a lot to go on there…and this whole issue came up only because a couple of sex workers (on an island where the competition for sex work is fierce) claimed to have been underpaid.
i say that if he was spending his own money, on his own time, and until it’s shown that he did anything illegal, that we all get our prurient noses out of his, and everybody else’s, sex lives.

Hmmm did he stay at Charlie Rangels place? Can we all say Gary Studds (hey that was a foreign underage gay prostitute)Barney, escort service, Franks or John, I lost $880,000,000, Corzine.
