Ho hum, another sex scandal; big deal.
Two women from the Dominican Republic told The Daily Caller that Democratic New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez paid them for sex earlier this year.
In interviews, the two women said they met Menendez around Easter at Casa de Campo, an expensive 7,000 acre resort in the Dominican Republic. They claimed Menendez agreed to pay them $500 for sex acts, but in the end they each received only $100.
The women spoke through a translator in the company of their attorney, Melanio Figueroa. Both asked that their identities remain obscured for fear of reprisals in the Dominican Republic.
Of course, the Senator’s office says:
Asked about the allegations, Menendez spokeswoman Tricia Enright refused to answer any questions on the subject. “We’re not going to respond to a completely false accusation,” she wrote by email.
So, the question is, who is telling the truth? Hard to say; the Ladies faces were obscured, so the guy cannot ID them. So, it is a situation of Tucker’s word against the Senator’s. Truthfully, this is a bad path to take for Tucker, it can get him sued and it tends to hurt his credibility.
I just think that there is a better way to fight this battle; instead of gotcha politics, we should just stand on principles. It is too bad that no one listens.
