Last night on Facebook, was chatting with our reader AZ Mo in NY as the sex story that Drudge had been hyping came out. I told him about the story and after skimming the article, said that there didn’t appear to be much there there. The Senator was divorced at the time. Our reader disagreed, thinking there was more to the story; he remind me that the Democrat had solicited these prostitutes, but failed to pay for their services.
I suggested then that he write up his remarks as a guest post. The following words are his, not mine. So, is he right, is there more to the story that a Senator failing to pay for services he solicited? –Dan
The party that lays claim to burning the brightest moral torch when it comes to caring for the poor and fighting for women’s rights has fired the latest shot in the war on women. Matthew Boyle over at the Daily Caller alerts us to Democratic New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez overworking and underpaying third world prostitutes during a previously-undocumented visit to the Dominican Republic. Boyle reports that Menendez promised his prostitutes $500 in exchange for their services, yet only paid them $100.
At the same time he forgot to pay one of the prostitutes the additional $400, he also forgot to tell anyone he was going away for that 2012 Easter weekend, “Menendez’s 2012 public schedule shows no events listed for Easter or the following three days. On Easter Sunday this year, aircraft records obtained by TheDC show that Melgen’s plane left Florida the morning of Easter Sunday, stopped at the Teterboro private airport near Menendez’s home in New Jersey, and flew on to the Dominican Republic.” reports Boyle. Why did that happen?
