Menendez rushes to pay private-jet tab after FBI raid. “WNBC-TV4 in New York City reported Wednesday that Sen. Menendez (D-NJ) recently wrote a $58,500 check to the jet’s owner, Florida eye doctor Salomon Melgen.” For trips he took 3 years ago. After the FBI raided Melgen’s office. It’s not corruption when Democrats do it. BTW, Menendez is in line to become chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee after John Kerry (D-Ketchup) begins leading from behind at State.
