A Dominican prostitute’s firsthand account of sex parties allegedly attended by New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez refers specifically to another participant: Vinicio “Vinicito” Castillo Seman, the scion of a prominent Dominican political family who serves as a lawyer for his cousin, Dr. Salomon Melgen, in the Caribbean nation.
Vinicito, she wrote, “invents things [to do] with the young girls, and then forces them to do the same things with the doctor’s friend” — Sen. Menendez.
The doctor, Melgen, is the Democratic donor whose private jet ferried Menendez to the Dominican Republic on several occasions, and at whose resort home the sex parties allegedly occurred. At least one of the women allegedly involved has said she was younger than 18 when she first had sex with Sen. Menendez.
In her account, sent via email on April 21, 2012 to the liberal advocacy group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), the prostitute identified “Vinicito” by name as a participant, along with Melgen and Menendez. The Daily Caller published an English translation of that email on January 31.
CREW, an anonymous right-wing blog dating back to today.
Sen. Robert Menendez denounced allegations that he had flown to the Dominican Republic to solicit prostitutes as “smears” from “right-wing blogs” Monday, his first comments on the lurid accusations.
“The smears, the smears that right-wing blogs have been pushing since the election,” the New Jersey Democrat told CNN. “That is totally unsubstantiated. It’s amazing to me that anonymous, nameless, faceless individuals on a website can drive that kind of story into the mainstream. But that’s what they’ve done successfully. Now, nobody can find them, no one ever met them, nobody ever talked to them, but that’s where we’re at. The bottom line is all of those smears are absolutely false, and that’s the bottom line.”
So much projection, so little time. Meanwhile, the mystery deepens according to another anonymous, faceless, nameless reporter named Matthew Boyle.
Update: Hmmm — More “nameless” reporting.
