Video: Dominican hookers accuse Senator Menendez of underpaying them

posted at 8:41 am on November 1, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Every few years, a prominent national politician ends up getting exposed in a salacious sex scandal, allowing the other party to cluck their tongues in sanctimony … until it’s their own politician who gets caught in the snare.  It’s been a while since we walked the Appalachian Trail or took a wide stance, although the recent Secret Service sex scandal in Colombia (and elsewhere) made for a pretty good placeholder.  This time, it’s the Democrats’ turn to squirm as the Daily Caller breaks a story about Senator Robert Menendez and alleged trysts with hookers in the Dominican Republic — and his stinginess:

In interviews, the two women said they met Menendez around Easter at Casa de Campo, an expensive 7,000 acre resort in the Dominican Republic. They claimed Menendez agreed to pay them $500 for sex acts, but in the end they each received only $100.

The women spoke through a translator in the company of their attorney, Melanio Figueroa. Both asked that their identities remain obscured for fear of reprisals in the Dominican Republic.

When shown a photograph of Sen. Menendez, the women said they recognized him as the man with whom they’d had sexual relations at Casa de Campo this spring. Both said they were brought to the resort with the understanding they would be paid for sex.

Neither knew the identity of the man at the time. Both claimed to recognize him later as Sen. Menendez.

Menendez has made a number of trips to the Dominican Republic, with the DC reporting that Menendez sometimes flies on a private plane loaned to him by a campaign donor with a vacation house in the country.  The same donor owns Casa de Campo.  That arrangement might end up causing Menendez more problems (with the FEC) than his alleged arrangements with these two hookers.

Menendez’ office denies these allegations, and with an election in five days, it’s not much mystery why they won’t give this additional oxygen by commenting further.  Menendez appeared ready to cruise to re-election against Joseph Kyrillos, a state Senator who won 77% of the vote in the primary.  Menendez needs this like a hole in the head, but it’s not clear whether this will do much harm even at this stage of the race.  Republicans hate to have this pointed out, but David Vitter’s still in the Senate after a scandal involving prostitution, and I’m not sure that New Jersey is any more morally strict than Louisiana when it comes to that sort of issue.

The story itself seems rather suspicious, even if — a rather large if — it turns out to be true.  Neither of these two women knew who “Bob” was at the time of the alleged transaction by their own admission.  How, then, did they come to realize his identity and choose to make it public?  At least according to this video, they seem to have become aware of Menendez’ identity only when told about it by someone else.  So who was that someone else, and how did they know about it?

It would be nice if they could produce a smoking gun condom or something. Personally I’m against these late-game revelations. October surprises are ok, but there needs to be time to properly rebutte a claim.

Glenn Jericho on November 1, 2012 at 9:55 AM

After watching Obama speak in NJ yesterday i would think they are glad in NJ that they have at least 1 US senator that is alive. Did you notice Frank the Lout standing there wondering “where the hell am i?” In a complete daze. I only wish Bob could find some local talent when he needs help.

The good folks in New Jersey deserve someone better than Bob. He is too faced and will not overcome this scandal.

There is no so-called War On Women from the Republican side.

But apparently there is a War On Women from the Democrat side. First, exploit women by using hookers. Second, screw them over after screwing them by short-paying them after they’ve provided sexual services.

If the Senator were a Republican, the MSM would be all over this, demanding his resignation and connecting him to Romney. But having the magic (D) behind your name provides you a free ride and immunity.

Progressive whoremongers are the good kind (BillyJeff, Weiner, CapeCod Orca, Bob Beckel, etc). They have nothing to do with promoting violence in the war on women, riiiight? Interesting how @SenatorMenendez uses Battered Women’s Gala to deflect the lens off himself.

Western_Civ on November 1, 2012 at 10:47 AM

I’m sure he had simply and inadvertently drawn down his “hooker” account below the level of his last transaction and he just didn’t have enough cash to pay the girls. Easily fixed with an immediate deposit. Now move on, nothing more to see here . . . I mean for goodness sake couldn’t anybody have made this innocent mistake?

Nah. What these guys need to understand is that a private place, nice drink, Internet with an anonymous proxy and a date with Thumbelina and her four sisters is the safest way to handle, (no pun intended), the deed safely.

Unfortunately, they could have Menendez on tape doing the most despicable thing that would get any other person thrown out of office and it still would not matter.

It’s NJ where a majority of people vote straight-line Democrat no matter what the ethical, moral or criminal situation is.

Marcus Traianus on November 1, 2012 at 11:16 AM

they seem to have become aware of Menendez’ identity only when told about it by someone else. So who was that someone else, and how did they know about it?

Could be they were just trying to find out who it was that stiffed them, found out he was someone important then went for the 15 minutes of fame.
Or
It could be some reporter was looking into a democrat..ha ha ha ha… taking a private plane to… I can’t take it… an exclusive resort on the dime of a donor and… Stop it please… found the hookers… That’s just to unbelievable

This sounds ridiculous on its face!

First of all, if he is single and prostitution is legal in the
Dominican Republic (don’t know), then what is the fuss about?

If he met these two on the beach, they charge $100.00.

If he met these two through an escort service, etc. then they
charge $500.00 and expect payment before service is rendered.

Either way, it sounds like a scam to me…on their end, not his.

I am sick of these sex scandal stories days before an election.
It is juvenile.

Just because he lives in FL doesn’t mean he doesn’t have important business interests in other states. Just about everyone with major business interests in the New York metro area lives in FL so it’d make sense.

Menendez’s agenda on immigration, flooding this country with poverty, makes sense now. A lot of poor, desperate people on our streets means many bargain hookers. Of course, even morally degenerate members of the middle class won’t like the other consequences of flooding our country with poverty: a huge increase in crime, deteriorating economic conditions for the middle class, and whatever collapse an unaffordable welfare state would cause.

- Akin and Mourdock have been heckled and ridiculed for misstatements (I won’t get into whether they are even misstatements or not). Yet we are supposed to just sit back and not say or do anything and this clown gets a pass.

How about asking people to disavow Menendez like Romney and every other R on the planet was asked to disavow Akin and Mourdock?

Senator Bob Menendez is up for re-election in New Jersey on Tuesday.

State Senator Joe Kyrillos is the Republican candidate who is running against Senator Bob Menendez (D).

You can learn more about Joe Kyrillos at his campaign website:

If you live in New Jersey, please let us all know what you think of Joe Kyrillos.

I realize it is an uphill battle for a Republican in New Jersey, but helping to increase Joe Kyrillos’ name recognition couldn’t hurt if he is an honorable candidate.

Who says dems just spend…here is a Senator (d) who knows how to save money, live within a budget…he should be applauded for not wasting our tax money, he saved the taxpayers $400 a hooker, do you know how much money congress could save if they all were that frugal?

The only cheaper way, would have been to drive them into a river and leave them to drown…or hire them as an intern.

Dems love to crucify any Republican who screws up, especially if that Republican espouses moral values.

Dems, on the other hand can get away with murder, because they have no standards to which they can be held.

So the righteous person who sins once or a few times, is infinitely worse to them than an amoral, serial dirt bag.
How’s that for a fluked up viewpoint?

So the righteous person who sins once or a few times, is infinitely worse to them than an amoral, serial dirt bag.
How’s that for a fluked up viewpoint?

Dems don’t think. They are morons who only emote.

Do you really want to die on this hill?

Okay – here’s my first shot. David Vitter – dude BROKE THE LAW by visiting his hookers in DC. How have you penalized him for it?

By reelecting him as Republican Senator from Louisiana.

Mendez … Menendez … whatever his name is – didn’t even break the law – remind me of why he should pay a higher price than David Vitter did?

Nothing to see here.

Oh, and by the way – I VOTED for David Vitter’s reelection for two reasons. First – he’s a real conservative and not an establishment Ayatollah Republican. Second – I have no problem whatsoever with prostitution so, in my mind – he’s done nothing wrong.

Same for this NJ guy.

Sen. Bob Menendez’s consorting with prostitutes in the Dominican Republic is perfectly legal, but tremendously pathetic. Come on, Bob. You are one of a hundred Senators in the most powerful country in the history of the world and you have to pay for sex?

PA-THE-TIC.

I hope they DID didn’t have any preexisting conditions. Syphilis would be good.

I realize it is an uphill battle for a Republican in New Jersey, but helping to increase Joe Kyrillos’ name recognition couldn’t hurt if he is an honorable candidate.

You really think any of this somehow makes Menendez an issue for liberals? More of a hero.

Eh, big deal.

Translation problem… He said he was “tight… er cheap”, and they thought he meant something else.
