US Senator, Bob Menendez Accused Of Sex With Underage Prostitute

Robert Menendez has already been coming under fire for his trips to the Dominican Republic for what appears to be just to have sex with hookers. He went with one of his best friends in a private plane. That friend is also a big donor. Now, an organization has an e-mail that was released yesterday which alleges that Menendez only liked the youngest, most inexperienced hookers and that he had sex with minors. The FBI has raided the home of his travel partner looking for evidence. The underage prostitute began having sex with Menendez when she was just 16 years old. Menendez denies everything.

It's with a 16-year-old Girl? He must be a Democrat then ;)

MISCH said...

well they have been working overtime to get him on something

LottaColada said...

@VIP- LMAO, yes he is. Sadly he's not from Florida though. Aw shucks.

Ashlea said...

I just voted for him. He seemed like a rock solid politician but sex with underage kids is no bueno.

katie said...

If it was an underage boy it would have been a Republican.

Jennifer H. said...

Oh, snap!

ReesesPeace said...

@Katie: Zing!!!

Vicki Cupper said...

Yep. Limbaugh's jaunts down to the DR for a little NAMBLA action are well-known.

This guy is a sick fuck.

Frufra said...

And now, we go to Senator Rivera for a reaction? Senator, what are your thoughts on this?

Frufra said...

Dang it, ruined my joke with a misplaced question mark. Oh well.

phoenix said...

lmao katie, and chances are a Family Values Republican at that.

Menendez needs to absent himself from the Senate and voting until the issue gets resolved, or better yet just resign because I have a feeling that's what will happen eventually anyway.

katie said...

Yes, he needs to go. They are all narcissists. And sociopaths.

Tuxedo Cat said...

Wow, isn't that nice payback for all the people who have supported him.

Seachica said...

I laughed, Frufra

Cindy said...

Apparently the age of consent in the DR is 16 so he didn't break any laws except moral ones, and Lord knows that politicians don't give a shit about morality until they're caught with their pants down, so to speak.

Veech said...

Ugh. This annoys me. He's such a vocal advocate for NJ Teachers (me and my people), that these allegations just piss me off. Damn it, Bob-o, keep it in your pants!

skimpymist said...

Just when jersey was finally beginning to establish its rep again thanks to christie along comes this guy, a career politician to make us look bad.

Frufra said...

Don't worry, skimpymist, there are enough dumbass politicians everywhere that I don't think NJ has the market cornered on embarassment. I live in Oklahoma. Feel free to point and laugh at our politicians. I'll do your Jersey heart good.

Nellie said...

I have a bomb! (Hijacking thread quickly)

I live in NJ and am seriously looking into becoming a teacher. Is there anything you can tell me about the state of the profession here? As far as I can tell, NJ has great public schools and the teachers seem to make a decent wage. Thoughts?
PS- the bomb is fake. Don't worry!

phoenix said...

The age of consent in the Dominican Republic is 18.

skimpy, if you need a place to start, google Sally Kern. You're welcome.

Skimpy, if you're a licensed teacher, go teach English in South Korea for a year or two. It'll look good on your resume and you make better pay than you would here.

Amartel said...

"lmao katie, and chances are a Family Values Republican at that."

Oh, phoenix, you poor uninformed child. No.

Ironically, he's the head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. That would make him a D______________. Guess that party!

BTW, the "best friend" with the private plane is a big donor to Senator Bob. Senator Bob and the best friend both like the youngest and the newest girls, apparently. They like free money, too. The best friend gave Senator Bob free private jet flights which, coincidentally, Senator Bob has just remembered to reimburse to the tune of $60,000. (Senator Bob voted for tax breaks for private jet owners. No connection to anyone at all, I'm sure.) Senator Bob then finessed a deal in the Dominican Republic that will make the "best friend" millions of dollars. No connection to all those private jet flights to the Dominican Republic, I'm sure. And I'm sure the deal completely legal and that there's no bribery or corruption involved at all.

Oh, and lastly? Senator Bob stiffs the kids in every way. He promises them a lot to have sex with his piggy little troll ass then pays them little.

But hey at least he's not a family values gay Republican!

This story has been embargoed by the media for months. It is only getting attention now because the hearings are public.

Zee Noxgoddess said...

lol "sadly, he's not from Florida"!!
Florida has some seriously cray-cray people but not all of us are like that. :)

SusanB said...

Doesn't matter what the age of consent there is. There's a federal law that makes it illegal for anyone from the US to go to a foreign country and have sex with anyone under 18, whether it's legal in the foreign country or not. So the US government can get him on that.

As for the big donor, his medical office is about 1 mile from my house, the FBI spent about 24 hours there 2 days ago boxing up his records and taking them away. The donor is some kind of eye surgeon - and evidently his patients have started leaving him in droves since he was identified. Evidently he was involved with Medicare/Medicaid fraud and some kind of tax problems as well. This MD also donated money to Bill Nelson (Fl. Senator who said he never heard of him) and Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fl. representative) who the last I heard refused to comment. It's never dull here in south Florida!

SusanB, my mouth is agape! Are you SURE you don't live in South Texas? That sounds like Texas border schenanigans. Oh politics; it's just new dogs performing the same old tricks.

just curious said...

I'm glad he wasn't black.

You guys are too funny today! I'm glad these guys were caught.

auntliddy said...

Lol, same convo my hubby and i had!!

phoenix said...

@Amartel, I responded to katie's comment regarding Republicans and underage boys, not Sen. Martinez and his underage girl:

katie said...

If it was an underage boy it would have been a Republican.

phoenix said...

lmao katie, and chances are a Family Values Republican at that.

And I'm proud of the fact that I don't find it necessary to insult people to get my point across :)

auntliddy said...

I will never understand having sex with children. Never. disgraceful. Goodbye.

KPeony said...

I went to school for teaching in NJ and have lived here my whole life. It's pretty hard getting a job. Even if you have an "in" at a school it could be a while even if your subject is in demand.

KPeony said...

At least we have Christie. He's a bamf.

I saw someone with a bumper sticker that said "My governor can eat your governor." I almost stole it.

All about Eve said...

It's looking really bad for Menendez right now but hey Senator David Vitter slept with prostitues here where it's illegal and he still on the job! Washington DC at its best! And to be honest I don't care what they do in their private lives unless they're breaking laws but when you present yourself as a pillar of morality and rail against women's choice and gay marriage while you're screwing prostitutes then you need to go away!

Ashlea said...

I love that! Jersey girl here. Although I didn't like Christie at first he really has done a lot for the state of NJ. He does have a serious weight problem and I wish he would start living a healthier lifestyle.

VIPblonde said...

Just like Pat O'Brien, politicians just can't stay away from hookers and blow

SusanB said...

@Frufra - we've talked about moving to Texas when we retire, but our house is underwater so we can't afford it (although I did buy lottery tickets today!). Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, ALL politicians are bad - yeah, I'm including (insert your favorite politician here) too! Power and money, that's all they want and they don't give a damn about you and me, except for what will buy our votes.

Connie151 said...

And yet, David "Diaper" Vitter is still in the Senate...

Patty said...

There is a opinion column from the 80's that was getting attention on FB recently. I believe the columnist recently passed. The essence of his article is that only 545 (I think that is the number) are responsible for all the country's problems. And only 545 have the ability to fix it too. Congress, Supreme Court, and POTUS. And if that 545 won't fix it, then let's get another 545 that will. Good read.



katie said...

I understood what you were saying. xx

Nellie said...

Hmmmmm. Interesting. I hadn't thought about that aspect of it. Thank you.

daz said...

Is 16 underage in the Dominican Republic ??? Not to say a really old man having sex with a teenage girl isn't bad, but the age of consent over here in europe is 16. He may be creepy but did he break the law ???

MadLyb said...

I knew some people who vote straight Dem who left his name blank. Apparently this has been brewing for awhile. Preying on a teen prostitute is one thing, but my guess is that if you're an old, ugly white man traveling to the DR, you're there to prey on pre-adolescents since in quite a few states, 14 is the age of consent. There's a special place in hell...

Susan said...

All I can say is thank God we have Chris Christie, because I firmly believe that man can redeem all the shady motherfucker politicians my lovely state of New Jersey has pumped out. I try to not worship my politicians, especially after working in journalism for a million years because the fact of the matter is so many of them lie and are in it for themselves, even when they do do some good things for peeps. I know it's way cynical, but I just really don't believe in politicians. (I think I've been lied straight to my face one too many times from the good ole' boys in New Jersey to truly believe in politicians.)

And I love all of you dearly, but I do tremendously loathe the blanketed statements made regarding Repubs and Dems.

Susan said...

Forgot to add: It's been pretty well known that Menendez is Shady McShady in my parts of South Jersey for a long time. I seriously feel like New Jersey politics is a branch organized crime. It's chockful of coverups.

Nellie: On being a teacher in New Jersey - I know a ton of teachers in New Jersey and I was truly thisclose to becoming one as well. It seems there are great opportunities for first-time teachers in Abbott districts, while the richer districts are much harder to get into. Good luck! I do think the state makes it very easy for people who are in a professional field to make the switch into education by taking some courses and standardized tests.

katie said...

It was a joke. Tap tap tap

Christine Magnotta said...

Wow. Maybe it's because I'm a giant Democrat, but this does NOT pass the smell test. The allegations are 100 percent based on an email that the alleged prostitute allegedly sent. Really? After Manti Te'o we're going to take this 100 percent at face value?

Henriette said...

I'm so glad I'm a registered Independent. I truly hate both parties equally.

nudibelle said...

It's the thing to do in DR. hooker/sex parties. police don't care. some officers offer girls to "male tourists"

ShinySpecialOne said...

Is there really such a thing as an "underage prostitute?" C'mon, let's call a duck a duck. Minors don't have the legal capacity to consent. She was a sex slave.

Agent**It said...

What does our Celebrity President have to say?

anon said...

Connie 151 - I know! I remember reading a story not that long ago that said that something like 50% of the people in Louisiana were not aware of Vitter's hooker/spanking/diaper scandal! I'm nowhere near LA, and I totally knew about it. How do you manage to keep something like that that quite?

Josie said...

Corey Booker is dancing in the streets right now, he wants one of those two NJ Senate seats, this one may be easy to grab shortly!!

paula said...

I'm not sure if the Daily Caller is a reputable source on this. He has been the victim of politically motivated slander and libel before. Here's an article that might be more balanced--

Count Jerkula said...

@Cindy: the age of consent in the Dominican Republic is 18. The age of consent in NJ is 16. And in NJ that is thrown out the window once prostitution enters the picture. I can't wait till he gets the boot and Christie appoints our first GOP Senator since 1982. http://www.ageofconsent.com/ageofconsent.htm

Count Jerkula said...

I can't wait until it comes out that Lautenberg is drinking the blood of virgins to cling to life, that shady pile of shit.

RE: teaching in NJ. You hear lots of whining and complaining from teachers active in the union, but that is all it is, union posturing. If it was that bad, they would seek year round employment.

@SpecialShinyOne: It depends on the definition of "minor". Here in NJ at 16 you can consent to sex. Now if a 17 year old here is screwing a 40year old, it isn't illegal, but if he pays to screw her, the charges will be greater than just solicitation. If he gives her weed or booze instead of money, they go after him for Contribution to the Delinquency of a Minor.

Menendez is pretty much done. How can he now take Kerry's seat as the chair of the Foreign Relations committee, when he is known to travel to foreign lands and exploiting their children?

Henriette, long time indie, for same reason.
