Did U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-New Jersey) pay underage hookers to perform sex acts on him during multiple, undisclosed trips to the Dominican Republic?
The U.S. Department of Justice (USDOJ) appears to have launched an investigation into that very question – which the mainstream media continue to ignore.
No really …
According to this website, that’s an email from FBI agent Regino E. Chavez (of the department’s Miami bureau) seeking additional information into the allegations against Menendez – a 58-year-old divorcee.
According to The Daily Caller – which three months ago broke a story about Menendez stiffing prostitutes - the Senator and one of his campaign donors routinely “purchased the service of prostitutes in that Caribbean nation at a series of alcohol-fueled sex parties.”
One of the women who allegedly participated in these sex parties was just 16 years old at the time … or two years younger than the Caribbean nation’s age of consent.
For the record this website supports the legalization of prostitution. And we don’t care if politicians have sex with prostitutes – or anybody else, for that matter. Menendez should be legally free to get his jollies however he wants, assuming they are of legal age.
Having said that, this case isn’t just about sex orgies with underage girls it’s about a sitting elected official taking unauthorized, unreported trips and receiving improper, unreported benefits.
Astoundingly, Menendez’s saga has barely registered as a blip on the mainstream media’s radar. In fact a gushing pro-Menendez piece published in this week’s Philadelphia Inquirer described him as a “fast-rising Democrat” enjoying a “relentless rise” and a “moment of robust possibilities” as he prepared to received the gavel of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
The paper never mentioned Menendez’s alleged underage “foreign relations.”
