There should be a little course given in secret, maybe after a few drinks, the first week you come to DC as a novice elected official. That course should involve things like how not to pick up interns, how to talk quietly in hotel bars, and how to appropriately treat your foreign hookers. And the class would be short because there isn’t a whole lot to understand: pay them the price that they ask for, do not deal with pimps in countries that don’t accept your form of currency, always check IDs for ages compliant with local consent laws and don’t let your shadier donors pay for the hookers.
FBI agents raided the West Palm Beach business of an eye doctor suspected of providing free trips and even underage Dominican Republic prostitutes to New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez — who has denied what he calls the “fallacious allegations.”
Agents gathered at the medical-office complex of Dr. Salomon Melgen, a contributor to Menendez and other prominent politicians, late Tuesday night to start hauling away potential evidence in about a dozen white vans.
The investigation is believed to be focusing on Melgen’s finances and the allegations about Menendez’s trips and contact with prostitutes. A spokesman for Menendez could not be reached for comment, nor could Melgen.
Apparently, Melgen owes the IRS somewhere in the ballpark of $11.1 million, and since he’s been spending a great deal of his hard earned cash sending Senator Menendez on foreign sexcapades, they’re curious about where their share of his money has gone. Well, other than the $30K or so that he gave to candidates in the last election cycle. Not counting the free plane rides for hooker parties.
