Is Senator Menendez Doomed? “There are rumors that powerful Democrats are now working to hasten the downfall of Menendez. …if [he] tries to hang on, it might inspire greater scrutiny to other politicians connected to Dr. Melgen, and those other politicians don’t need that scrutiny.” Then by all means, hang on… take the others down with you. Take the whole damn senate if that’s where it leads.

I say we jail the whole senate. Yeah, maybe there are one or two that don’t deserve it, but then most likely not.

Damn I swore that both Reid and plastic Polesi told us that they where going to drain the swamp. It looks like they didn’t get that done either.

As for Menendez hanging in there, by all means he needs to. At this point he has lost (paid off or back) all his wealth to the good doctor. As the only ones capable of arresting a sitting member of congress while they are in the Captiol Buildings are the Capitol police, I saw roll up at their homes in all the locations around 0300. Flash bang the shit out if the occupants and then perp walk Menendez and all the rest who are involved in this “adventure”.

It appears that the Chicago politics has rubbed off on those from NJ. Mendenez should not have taken advice from Bob “the torch” Torricelli.

It’s not Chicago politics, Menendez and Toricelli have been buddies for a long time, and sleazy for at least as long.

Menendez might survive this turmoil. After all, he is a Democrat liberal and, as such, gets a free pass for his immorality.

Still, even if he is booted out of the Senate, the New Jerseyites will just replace him with another Democrat liberal.

The backstory is that this may be about more than underage hooker slap and tickle, perhaps influence peddling or more, and that’s why the other crooks are worried.

The rules for senate replacement in NJ are that the gov appoints someone to fill the remainder of the term. That’s how Menendez originally got into the senate – Honest Jon Corzine held the seat and ran for (and was elected) governor in 2005 – appointed Menendez to fill the remaining few months of his term. Hopefully, if Menendez goes, Chris Christie will appoint someone other than a hack lefty Democrat to replace him.

“Influence peddling” Is there one, just one, member of the senate that does not peddle influence????? Those bribes er ah campaign contributions do not come without strings attached.
Menendez should have been satisfied banging his 21 year old senate aides, but I guess he doesn’t like older women like that.

It’s the rub off affect that might sink some of the rest. Guilty by association or in this case guilty by being involved. So if there are some of the so called moderate dim wit senators involved this could bring them down as well.

Is it possible that Fly boy Harkin is getting out before the pressure cooker explodes and he’s covered in the crap from it?

Like a Commiecrat like Menendez would receive anything more then a Charlie Rangel style slap on the wrist.
