Women: Sen. Bob Menendez paid
us for sex in the Dominican Republic

Daily Caller, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

Posted By:Mike PHX, 11/1/2012 2:32:11 AM

Two women from the Dominican Republic told The Daily Caller that Democratic New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez paid them for sex earlier this year. In interviews, the two women said they met Menendez around Easter at Casa de Campo, an expensive 7,000 acre resort in the Dominican Republic. They claimed Menendez agreed to pay them $500 for sex acts, but in the end they each received only $100. The women spoke through a translator in the company of their attorney, Melanio Figueroa. Both asked that their identities remain obscured for fear of reprisals in the Dominican Republic.

Comments:
Well, well. Dems keep getting caught because they're so cheap. Wonder how this will shake up the election.

The guy leads by 20% on RCP so maybe his lead will be cut back to 15%. What if he had been found in bed with Snookie?

It's a Dem. The people of New Jersey will probably still re-elect him.

Another jackass stiffing a whore. You'd think Menendez would have learned from the Secret Service caper in Colombia, but noo, his only thought was of getting some easy nookie himself on the cheap, too. His mind stopped at the cheap part and the consequences never occurred to him.

If Menendez was pulling capers and stunts of this sort in the DR, you can BET Bubba Clinton was, too. Both Cartagena and Santo Domingo are his watering holes.

Coincidence? I think not.

I can believe the story and yet ask what is the point?

Two DR pros with an attorney complain they didn't get paid as agreed and/or "Bob" didn't seem so loving after he had banged them?

Gee, that never happens.

Sounds like Senator Menendez is well suited for his day job.

I gotta say, I think this is a non-starter. A big *yawn*.

Single Dem Senator pays hookers for sex in a foreign country. Big whoop.

Only two points worthy of consideration, imho: 1) Did he use taxpayer funds to pay (shortchange) them? 2) The hypocrisy. Didn't he say the Secret Service guys should be fired?

Other than that...who cares?

Chalk up one for me. All hype non-story. A politician hires hookers and promises them $500 each. He (censored vulgarity)them, and then goes back on his word and pays only $100. One girl said he acted like he didnt care about them.
Ok, so where is the "man bites dog" in this story? It isnt there. It is a crooked politician doing what crooked ploiticians do.
I hope nobody stayed awake for this.

Uh, yawn. Democrats should not be removed from power because of their private lives, but because they are anti-American socialists. So long as coupling with hookers is not acceptable but being an anti-American socialist is, we will have problems with Democrats in power.

Since Vitter got to stay (and he was married) and was re-elected, Republicans can't talk. We let that happen. Thing is Vitter had been talked about for high office. No longer. Same will probably be true with Menendez - though he is divorced and was a country with legal prostitution. Vitter had lots of high priced call girls right in D.C.

This is apparently the "big sex scandal in one of the campaigns, involving a prominent seator" that Drudge was teasing on his site yesterday.

Problem is that with the Democrats this is expected behavior. Par for the course. Choose your own cliche.

It's also no surprise that he was dishonest with these hookers. He's had lots of practice.

Here's why it's important:

Joe Kyrillos hopes to score a major upset in November in his race against New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez.

This is no easy feat for the Republican state senator. The two most recent polls of the race — from Fairleigh Dickinson and Monmouth Universities — put him 12 and 9 percentage points behind Menendez, respectively. But Kyrillos says he’s not deterred.

“It’s not a normal election year, it’s not a normal New Jersey year because the country’s hurting,” he told The Daily Caller in a phone interview.

#27 - as you've posted, those polling data are from August. Today, RCP average shows Menendez up +19.

This will have little to no impact. He's not only a Democrat, he's a New Jersey Democrat.

He's a Demon-RAT. He is not expected to have any moral values, so this won't effect his standing with the voters in the least.

Sadly, the only time a Demon-RAT and sex would make news is if they found one that was actually faithful to his wife...

Oliver Stone has run smack into the same wall on a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr biopic that director Paul Greengrass hit when Universal kicked his MLK project Memphis to the curb two years back. Stone took to his Twitter account today to say that DreamWorks and Warner Bros rejected his script rewrite and that he was done with the movie that also had Jamie Foxx attached. It came down to the studios — which are in lockstep with the MLK estate that brought them the right to use his famous copyrighted speeches — rejecting Stone’s characterization of long-running rumors

Madden died at a hospice center near his home in the Jacksonville area, his niece Mary Frances Miller said. Towering and rumpled, Madden was best known for his role as Reuben Kinkaid, who managed the Partridge family band and regularly clashed with its impish pre-teen bassist, played by Danny Bonaduce.

A series of newly obtained emails shows that Gov.

Mr. Christie, a Republican, has insisted that his staff and his campaign had nothing to do with the lane closings, and said that they were done as part of a traffic study. But the emails, obtained by The New York Times, show that Bridget Anne Kelly, a deputy chief of staff

The decision in 1967 to feature a harpsichord behind Linda Ronstadt on "Different Drum" wasn´t a stretch. Throughout the decade, the high-strung keyboard was enjoying a renaissance, appearing on dozens of pop hits and soundtracks—including the Beatles´ "Fixing a Hole," the Beach Boys´ "God Only Knows," "The Addams Family" TV theme and "The Odd Couple" film score. Reasons for using the fussy instrument by rock, pop and R&B producers varied. Some sought a novelty touch while others wanted to be in step with London´s colorful Edwardian fashion trend and the psychedelic scene that came with it. But the harpsichord´s ´60s

However, he added fuel to the fire by continuing to slam the group’s backers, the Koch brothers, calling them “un-American.” Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips, in response, said Reid had effectively
