Shhh: Feds Began Investigating Bob Menendez Six Months Ago for Sleeping With Underage Hookers

Gee, this information might have been helpful during his Senate campaign.

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.”

So we had a coverup of Menendez and his dalliance with underage hookers, as well as a coverup of the fact he had an illegal alien sex offender working for him until after the election. Geez, who knew that (D) after your name meant you got a free pass from sex offenses? Oh, wait:

    “Gee, this information might have been helpful during his Senate campaign.”

    Yeah, have you seen the jerkwater politicians that we elect in NJ? This informaton probably would’ve increased his margin by 10%.

    I haven’t had any caffeine today, so maybe I’m missing it… Where is the source for the “underage” claim?

    Going overseas too procure underage hookers breaks some especially serious laws.

    The story claims that an ABC News reporter was aware of the allegations. It also claims the FBI was investigating.

    Just the fact that there were allegations circulating about would have caused ABC News to report it as a lead story… if Menendez were a Republican. Source be damned.

    Porking underage illegal girls is resume enhancer for a democrat party member.

    Maybe. But to be a true “lion,” you have to leave young women to drown while you lie your ass off.
