Sen. Bob Menendez Allegedly Stiffed Some Hookers In The Dominican Republic

Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) has been accused by two Dominican hookers of being a customer, and failing to pay the agreed rate. From The Daily Caller:

Two women from the Dominican Republic told The Daily Caller that Democratic New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez paid them for sex earlier this year.

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.

Menendez, in an ad released two days ago, highlights his “family values” credentials:

Must be Clinton “family values” …

Some day politicians (and the Secret Service) will learn that if you’re going to be partying with professionals it’s not a good idea to leave pissed them off on your way out the door.

    The taxpayer paid for the trip too. That’s what pisses me off. No respect. ww

    • Carl

      No, they didn’t. But go ahead and be pissed off anyway.

  • ackwired

    Did he serve in the Marine Corps?

  • jim_m

    I heard he didn’t pay them either.

  • 914

    Where’s the media whore Allred on this one? Oh, wait. they say he did not pay up.

  • Carl

    This happened 6 months ago back in April, and it’s just now coming to light — let’s see — 5 days before the election?

    It’s just more GOP bullshit.

    • 914

      Yep, the GOP stiffed his dominican field trip. You delusional fool.

    • jim_m

      Gee, Maybe if he had not covered up his frequenting prostitutes it would have come up in May. It doesn’t occur to you that perhaps he should not have been frequents hookers in the first place? Yeah, it must be the fault of the GOP that he is an immoral slob.

        Tell it to Diaper Dave Vitter.

      • Carl

        It’s an October surprise. It’s bullshit. He’s ahead in the polls by 20 plus points. It won’t make any difference.

    • If the story is true, then you can’t blame the GOP for the behavior of Menendez.

      • Jwb10001

        David we’re talking about Carl here, he can and will blame the GOP and will call everyone a racist for extra credit.

  • GarandFan

    Politicians stiff everyone. So what’s the “news”?

  • herddog505

    I don’t quite know what to make of this. On the one hand, we should expect better from our elected officials.

    On the other hand, expecting better of our elected officials is like expecting the sun to rise in the west tomorrow: ain’t gonna happen.

    Is this sort of behavior distasteful? Yes. Does it disqualify Menendez from office? Perhaps, but only because it lays him open to potential extortion.

    Meh. The people of NJ will have to decide.

    I guess jump starting bio tech and new energy wasn’t as satisfying as jumping hookers.. Its all about family after all.

  • Commander_Chico_Cognoscente

    $500 seems a bit high for the Dominican . . . but you’d have to ask Rush, I’ve never been there. Maybe fat toads like him and Menendez would have to pay more.

    Of course, if a female will suck cock for a price, she’ll say anything you want for a price. It’s not as if they have a reputation to uphold. So the veracity of this is suspect.

    • Jwb10001

      You are of course correct but your analysis of hookers could also apply to politicians. Generally however, the politicians get to screw us and take our money so there is that small difference otherwise……
