What’s wrong with this picture? Allegedly, Democrat Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey used a political donor’s plane to travel to the Dominican Republic for a sex holiday with underage prostitutes. That should turn your stomach enough. But wait, there is more. He stiffed them, literally; he didn’t pay what he promised, which resulted in him being outed by the madam. The story that broke the night before the election indicated that this was not his first venture to the political donor’s vacation residence and not the first time Menendez had used his plane.
Senator Harry Reid, in an interview with with ABC News’ “This Week With George Stephanopoulos”, defended his good friend from New Jersey, allowing him to keep his Chairmanship of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee while the ethics committee investigates the charges of illegal gifts. My God, where is the sanity, morality, and outrage?
Have you heard anything about this in the mainstream media? It’s only been about, let’s say, two months, which should have been enough time to conduct some sort of preliminary investigation. What do Democrats have to do before they come out and say “I have discredited my country; I resign in shame”?
In the liberal’s mind, nothing could be further from the truth. Because Dirty Harry says the Senator can still be effective, they aren’t going to do anything yet. Using a campaign donor’s plane to travel to that donor’s private retreat in another country to pay for sex with underage girls apparently isn’t shameful enough for Senator Menendez to resign, or for Harry Reid to take action against him. We should demand a public flogging of both Reid and Menendez.
