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 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.

  1. Roberto no tiene verguenza !

  2. The mainstream media is not in the business of repeating rumors. That is what the internet is for.

  3. any news on his illegal intern ???

  4. the guy goes to DR to pay $100 bucks to sleep with 15 year olds …creepy

  5. Maybe when there is a story to run with, they’ll run with it? Right now it is a very obscure “unnamed source”. About as reliable as a random Amazon review.

  6. #2, you’re right. The mainstream media is in the business advancing propaganda. They simply have no time to tend to journalism. When they do something in depth to try to expose predators, the investigator is a predator himself.

  7. Does anyone have a problem repeating a story from “unnamed sources” and an investigator ( not from a news agency, who paid the tab?) that went to the DR to investigate Menendez?

    I will wait for the real proof. Not he said/she said. Funny, I mentionis in a previous post that prostitution was legal in the DR. Now the story has been changed to “underage” prostitutes. The story seems to change with the need for outrage.

  8. #7 – honor killings are OK in some parts of the world. Does this mean it’s ok for a U.S. senator to engage in the practice?

  9. #8 That would be a fallacy of equivocation. Honor killing is not legal in the US but prostitution is in some parts. They seem to be on different levels of crime/bad behavior. Can you see the difference? I will say that in my opinion people who patronize prostitutes are pathetic losers.

    The FBI is still working with an “informant” who is willing to email an agent but not meet with the agent or identify himself/herself.
