Default FBI investigating Sen. Bob Menendez for sleeping with underage Dominican prostitutes

Quote:
Documents published online for the first time Thursday indicate that the FBI opened an inquiry into New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez on August 1, 2012, focusing on repeated trips he took to the Dominican Republic with longtime campaign contributor and Miami eye doctor Salomon Melgen. TheDC reported in November that Menendez purchased the service of prostitutes in that Caribbean nation at a series of alcohol-fueled sex parties.

The documents, which The Daily Caller had obtained hours earlier from an anonymous source, also indicate that Carrie Levine, research director at Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), was alerted on April 9, 2012 to Menendez’s habit of paying for sex while outside the United States.

ABC News senior investigative producer Rhonda Schwartz was aware as early as May 2, 2012, the documents show, when Levine wrote a source in the Dominican Republic to say that she had “shared your allegations, but not your identities, with a respected, trusted journalist with whom we have worked on other stories.”

In another email two days later, Levine identified that journalist as one who “works for ABC News.” By May 16, Schwartz was emailing Levine’s original source with questions.

Information made available to Schwartz and Levine at that time included allegations that some of Menendez’s prostitutes were as young as 16. The source also alleged that Sen. Menendez was taking “non-authorized trips” to the Dominican Republic, suggesting that he may have been evading Senate Ethics committee rules covering disclosures when third parties pay for a senator’s travel.

Just remember boys and girls that this is the same senator who just before the Nov. election was revealed that he had an illegal immigrant working for him who was a convicted sex offender. The White House told the immigration dept. not to pick this scum bag up because they were afraid it would cost him the election.

Now we have him under investigation for sleeping with UNDERAGE prostitutes.

I thought Democrats were always yelling about how they do things FOR the children; not TO them...

To those perverts, "for the children" means, anything they can do to a child and get away with.

I don't see 16 as being a big deal. I also don't see how a customer could possibly know the age of the person they're hiring.

Well, Gaia have mercy ( I won't) on any boy thinking that about my granddaughter and attempting to demonstrate it. I already cautioned an 18 year old with his probable and inevitable castration and penectomy after I found out he had his eyes on my 14 year old niece. For some reason, he quickly lost interest in any romance after that tidbit.

Hate to tell ya, but if and when she decides to have sex with someone (regardless of their age), there really isn't **** you're going to be able to do to stop her. And that's what we're talking about here, the will and choice of the person in question who is offering a service.

And that doesn't address the issue of someone being unable to know how old the person is that they're hiring.

WOHHHH HA HA HA HA! It's not her who has to worry about her genitals getting whacked off. I'm not concerned whether or not any gentleman knows how old my young female relatives are. But I was addressing your post regarding the age of 16, and nothing more.

At age 16, women are ready, willing, and able to have sex. And perfectly ready, willing, and able to make that decision themselves. I see no issue with any person having sex with a 16 year old as long as it's consensual. Regardless of whether they are 16 or 19+. Age is not relevant in that situation.

You can be as misogynistic as you want regarding your 'young female relatives', that doesn't change the facts that at 16, she's sexually mature and is not a 'kid'.

As long as the child is living under my roof, she will abide by my rules, or I'll boot her ass out to the street, and I'll tell her to get a job, buy her own food, support a roof over her head, get her butt to work on her own, wash her own clothes, and do it without sucking on any other relatives' teats.


Laa-lala-lalaaaa!

Misogynistic, my ass. The same goes for a boy who thinks he is infinitely more worldly than his grandpa.

FYI people. The age of consent in the Dominican Republic is 18 years. Sen Menendez can therefore be very thankful the Dominican Republic has not itself charged him. Their jails aren't country clubs like the ones for our politicians are.
