On the same day he assumed control over one of the most powerful committees in Washington, U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-New Jersey) aggressively denied allegations he slept with underage hookers in the Dominican Republic.

In an interview with CNN, the new Senate foreign relations committee chairman called the allegations against him “totally unsubstantiated” and accused “right-wing blogs” of spreading “smears” against him.

“It’s amazing to me that anonymous, nameless, faceless individuals on a website can drive that kind of story into the mainstream,” Menendez told the network. “But that’s what they’ve done successfully. Now, nobody can find them, no one ever met them, nobody ever talked to them, but that’s where we’re at. The bottom line is all of those smears are absolutely false, and that’s the bottom line.”

Last week agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) raided the West Palm Beach, Florida office of Dr. Salomon Melgen – Mendendez’ traveling companion who owes the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) more than $11 million in back taxes. According to The Daily Caller, Melgen hired prostitutes (including one who was allegedly 16 years old at the time) to perform sex acts on them at alcohol-soaked orgies in the Dominican Republic.

One of the alleged prostitutes told Univision earlier Monday she had never met Menendez.

So if this is a “smear”, can we start referring to it as a “Dirty Menendez”?

Rupert Murdoch Emerges as Winning Bidder for Richard III’s Bones

LONDON (The Borowitz Report) — The media mogul Rupert Murdoch stunned the world of British antiquities today by purchasing the newly discovered remains of Richard III for a hundred million dollars.

“This is a dream come true for me,” a jubilant Mr. Murdoch told reporters after the British government accepted his bid for the fallen tyrant. “Richard III is more than an important historical figure to me. He’s a role model.”

Mr. Murdoch said that he plans to put Richard III on display at the News Corporation headquarters in New York, “where he will serve as an inspiration to all our employees when I’m not there.”

But Mr. Murdoch’s shocking purchase of Richard’s bones has ignited howls of protest from British historians like Alistair Grindle, who warns that the media magnate’s motives may be far from pure.

“It would not surprise me one bit if Murdoch attempted to reanimate Richard III’s DNA and use him to seize control of the British government,” says Mr. Grindle. “The last thing this world needs is Rupert Murdoch and Richard III working together.”

For his part, Mr. Murdoch said he was baffled why his purchase of Richard III had proven so controversial: “This is far from the first time I’ve bought a British leader.”
