Bob Menendez Underage Prostitution Scandal Barely Being Reported By Mainstream Media
Last month it was revealed that Senator Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) hired a registered sex offender turned illegal alien sex offender as an intern. It was also revealed that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security delayed the arrest of the intern until after election day Another scandal is materializing for the former private practice attorney who sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on International Operations and Organizations, Human Rights, Democracy and Global Women’s Issues: The Daily Caller alleges that Menendez had sex with underage prostitutes on several visits to the Dominican Republic from 2009 to 2012.
The research director at the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics (CREW) in Washington, Carrie Levine, is said to have received information from an unnamed source regarding the senator’s alleged dalliances with prostitutes as young as 16. Levine apparently shared this information with ABC News senior investigative producer Rhonda Schwartz in May 2012, but ABC News did not break the story, and, as of January 28, 2013, I was unable to find any article about the allegations on abcnews.com. Instead the Daily Caller broke the initial version of the story on November 1, 2012. The story is gaining greater headway of late because Daily Caller published a follow-up on January 25, 2013 asserting that the FBI is investigating the allegations against Menendez with a slew of FBI emails published as pictorial evidence.
According to the Daily Caller, CREW asked the Department of Justice and the FBI to investigate the allegations on July 17, 2012. Additionally, the original source, a “Mr. Williams,” apparently shared the information with an FBI Special Agent in Miami on September 11, 2012.
