And if a liberal political organization did this?
Sen. Robert Menendez is asking the Justice Department to pursue evidence obtained by U.S. investigators that the Cuban government concocted an elaborate plot to smear him with allegations that he cavorted with underage prostitutes, according to people familiar with the discussions.
In a letter sent to Justice Department officials, the senator’s attorney asserts that the plot was timed to derail the political rise of Menendez (D-N.J.), one of Washington’s most ardent critics of the Castro regime. At the time, Menendez was running for reelection and was preparing to assume the powerful chairmanship of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee…
The allegations first became public on Nov. 1, 2012, days before Menendez stood for reelection, with the Daily Caller reporting that two women said they had met Menendez around Easter that year at the Casa de Campo resort and that Menendez paid them for sex acts.
ABC News said it was introduced to the women and their story by Republican operatives at the same time but decided against going with the story, because the women appeared coached and were not able to provide identification cards.
Turns out they’ve retracted their stories. If a liberal media outlet were to be a Communist cat’s paw, we would never hear the end of it. For decades.
What’s idiotic is that Menendez does seem to have ‘financial irregularities.’ Rather than dinging him with those, they went for the unsubstantiated hooker story. We should all be so blessed with stupid enemies.
