According to a Washington Post article, a federal grand jury is investigating U.S. Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) in connection with his alleged lobbying efforts on behalf of a Dominican friend and heavy campaign contributor, Dr. Salomon Melgen.
The Washington Post yesterday, reported that the escort who appeared on tape accusing Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) of paying her for sex, has recanted.
The escort, Nexis de los Santos Santana, 23, said in an affidavit she was hired by lawyer Miguel Galvan to do a taped interview with journalists in mid-October. Galvan explained to her that a false account was needed for a divorce case. De los Santos said she was surreptitiously taped implicating Menendez, Melgen and prominent Dominican lawyer Vinicio Castillo Selmán, Melgen’s cousin, in hiring prostitutes.
“Those are my words and that is me, but it does not reflect the truth,” de los Santos said in her affidavit.
At a gathering at the Shiloh Baptist Church in Trenton, NJ, U.S. Senator Robert Menendez claimed that right wingers were hurling false accusations because of his Hispanic heritage.
“I have felt the sting of discrimination. Now we face anonymous, faceless, nameless individuals from right-wing sources seeking to destroy a lifetime of work. And their scares are false. I have worked too hard and too long in the vineyards to allow, at my hands, for the harvest to be soured.”
As part of Black History month, the Senator attended a gathering at the Trenton Church and cited words from Martin Luther King, Jr.
Late last night, the Daily Caller leaked yet another development in the prostitute scandal involving U.S. Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ).
The DC referred to the prostitute as ”Beth” who claims Mr. Menendez has become well known among high priced escorts “since at least 2008.”

So, here are the top five GOP valentines you can send:
Personally, who wouldn’t want a romantic getaway?
So what if it is with a semi-creepy Senator who likes the “new and young ones?”
Senior U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) went on the record stating he does not see why the embattled U.S. Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) would need to step down as Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
The Daily Caller is reporting that late yesterday, Citizens for Responsibility & Ethics in Washington (CREW) added the embattled Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) to its list of “Under Investigation”.
CREW notes that the Senator is under investigation by the Senate Ethics Committee for “accepting gifts from a donor who flew him to the Dominican Republic on a private jet.” Absent from the report is any reference to a federal investigation into Senator Menendez’s alleged activities with underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic.
FEC records indicate Dr. Salomon Melgen’s financial support is not limited to only Democrats in office. Records show that Dr. Melgen and his wife Flor Melgen have donated a combined total of nearly $20,000 to GOP House Representatives’ Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL). Both Representatives have Cuban backgrounds and reside in southern Florida.
