Stacy McCain notes Sen Bob Menendez (D-NJ) has some interesting extracurricular activities when traveling:
Shortly after the Drudge Report headline went up, my associate Ali Akbar got a tip that the story involved Sen. Menendez of New Jersey and at least one prostitute with whom he trysted on a taxpayer-funded trip to the Dominican Republic. Within one hour, Akbar had confirmed this with other sources, and we understand that numerous reporters in D.C. have heard similar reports.
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.
But I have to disagree with the sentiment from Stacy McCain concerning this question:
What would Lilly Ledbetter say?
Frankly we know the answer to that, it was given by a different activist for women in a similar situation, a reporter Named Nina Burleigh back in 1998:
“I would be happy to give him a blowjob just to thank him for keeping abortion legal. I think American women should be lining up with their presidential kneepads on to show their gratitude for keeping the theocracy off our backs.”
There are two different cultures in America, the culture of the left believes the end justifies the means.
Any person who thinks democrat women who still kneel and worship at the altar of Bill Clinton are going to care about Bob Menendez paying for sex from women in the Dominican Republic has not paid attention to the Democrat party and where they have gone in the last 15 years.
I have no doubt as long as Mendenez votes the way Ms. Ledbetter and the media wants she and they will have absolutely no problem with any thing he does with any woman.
Update: Nice deb weighs in:
I say *possible* scandal because with just a few days until the election, the Democrats are going to be in full scale circle the wagons mode – proclaiming his innocence, attacking the accusers, etc. They can easily run out the clock using their usual lying and obfuscating (or ignoring) methods.
And if that doesn’t work, they’ll just brazenly stand by him as they’ve stood by so many other bad actors in the party who have been caught in even worse scandals.
With Sandy the MSM has an actual legit story from NJ that totally overshadows anything Mendenez is doing. If I was Bob Mendenez I’d be on the phone getting relief crews to the state STAT so that when some guy at a bar is asked about this issues he can say: “I don’t give a d*** who Mendenez is ******** as long as he gets my power on.”
That’s the ideal
Update 2: I can’t believe I forget Kennedy:
Ted Kennedy became “The Lion of the Senate” after killing Mary Jo Kopechne with his car and walking away without lifting a finger to help her. So when I found out about the offshore sexcapades of Senator Bob Menendez from New Jersey I figured it wasn’t worth wasting my time. New Jersey voters are now more interested in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy than they are the extracurricular activities of their Senator, and even if they weren’t preoccupied, it probably wouldn’t sway them anyway.
It’s like buying an indulgence.
