Fort Lee NJ, Libertarian Party candidate Murray Sabrin is going on the offensive against incumbent Democrat Bob Menendez.
“Bob Menendez is the quintessential example of why Americans are fed up with Washington politics. His time in the Senate has been an embarrassing, politically-driven circus devoid of any civility or critical thought,” Sabrin said. “United States Senators should spend more time defending the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and less time engaging in partisan gamesmanship. Bob Menendez is a crooked, unethical career politician. He is a disgrace and should resign immediately.”

Ridgewood NJ, in explosive testimony in the Senator Menendez Corruption trial , wealthy eye-doctor pal of Sen. Robert Menendez threatened to “make trouble” for the US Commerce Department through his “politically influential friends” if he did not get help with a troubled business project, it emerged at his bribery trial on Monday.

According to Commerce staffer Sam Smith a witness in the trial  Dr. Salomon Melgen who is on trial for bribery alongside Menendez in Newark federal court made the threatening comments through a lawyer at a 2012 meeting. The lawyer set up the meeting to pressure Commerce Dept. officials to help Melgen with a costly contract dispute, Smith said.

“He was very aggressive and threatening and constantly brought up the fact that he could make trouble for the department and he could be a bull in the Commerce Dept.’s china shop,” Smith told jurors about the meeting with Melgen’s lawyer, Elio Muller.

“He stated that Dr. Melgen had politically influential friends and they could cause a lot of problems for Commerce Dept. if Dr. Melgen didn’t think he was being served well,” Smith added.

When asked who Muller was referring to when he spoke of Melgen’s “politically influential friends,” Smith didn’t hesitate to say Menendez, a senior Democratic senator from NJ who stands accused of accepting bribes from Melgen in exchange for official favors.
