Every NJ Governor gets to pick an interim Senator if the one in office dies or gets thrown out or resigns, of course. But Christie picked a moderate one (who just rode it out) and scheduled a new election. Otherwise, that's a pretty stupid comment, given that Christie could've appointed Chiesa to stay as Senator until the next scheduled election-and didn't. Or did you not know that??

Now if we can really find out what happened to Harry Reid's face?


(He's so accident prone in the weirdest of ways...)

"(Reid) dislocated his shoulder and bumped his forehead in May 2011 when he slipped and fell during a morning jog in the rain.

Reid leaned on a wet car near his home in Washington, D.C.'s Ritz-Carlton hotel and tumbled to the ground.

That fall left him with a contusion just below his left eye, but he was back in action later that night at a fundraiser for California Sen. Barbara Boxer."

Obama and Holder took down Patreaus earlier this week, now they are after Menendez and H. Clinton with the email. They know she is close to announcing and like all the others they have smeared, they knew about the Hillary email thing for years. They are all arrogant and they played right into Obama's hands. Now if we can really find out what happened to Harry Reid's face? Do you really think the Epstein / Plane /B. Clinton / underage girls thing just popped up by accident. And now NY State is looking at Epstein's charities? He was convicted and did his slap on the wrist 5 years ago?

Unless they've got true, death-defying dirt, Sen. Menendez is not going anywhere. He's made of old-fashioned Hudson County teflon - grittier than ole boy Chicago any day of the week.

This will be interesting.

Menendez is highly educated and smart but don't let that laugh of his fool you. He has a stare that can freeze you on the spot."

Political Insider Column


Also from that column:

"Among Hudson County Democratic politicos the feeling seems to be that several months ago, the Justice Department - in a Democratic administration -- was coming up dry, but soon after Menendez and President Obama started publicly clashing on issues like Cuba and Iran, the federal investigation seems to have been given a second breath. If you know Hudson politics, this will become fact.

Former Assemblyman Louis Manzo, who had a federal corruption case against him thrown out, agrees. And this from a guy who sided with the late Glenn Cunningham to politically battle Menendez.

"They can clean-up Capitol Hill but only choose to go after Menendez because he went after the president in how the country is dealing with Cuba and Iran -- and Menendez is a staunch ally of Israel," he said by phone. "Is it political? You bet your ass it is. Unlike Russia, where they use bullets to get rid of political headaches, in this country they use indictments."

So Holder is the Chicago Hitman heading out the door... this story was out there months before Menendez's most recent election and now the DOJ just gets around to investigating??? Looks like it is the start of a good old style Soviet Kremlin purge. I wonder if Hillary is on the list?

Menendez missed going to jail in the 1980s, the feds were after Mayor Musto of Union City, Bob was a witnessed for the feds. The Italians were upset that this Cuban who Musto gave a chance turned against him. By that time Union City was more Cuban than Italian.

As new information shows that Senator Menendez had former Senate Majority leader Harry Reid with him when he met with Kathleen Sibelius of HHS-when the NJ Democrat Senator was looking for favorable treatment for his large donor and fellow 'vacationer' in the Dominican Republic.

http://www.nj.com/politics/index.ssf/ ... ng_in_g.html#incart_river

You remember, the guy who had all the Medicare/Medicaid billing issues-and whose private plane rides Menendez didn't repay until years late when caught.

More so with the current US DOJ AG... I think the arrogance of power a and longevity in office make all politicians ethical challenged... I am a firm believer with term limits.

I disagree with Schumer's politics, but I've never seen a hint that he's corrupt on any level.

It's been over a year since much news about the last investigation-while the child sex allegations may have been fishing, the time he spent lobbying for the Florida/Dominican doctor (the one who evaded $8 million in taxes) is still under a cloud. (You remember, the guy who sends his private plane to ferry Menendez around.) Things sure don't seem to speed too fast when it's a Democratic NJ Senator under investigation it seems. And why Charlie Rangel is still in office is a disgrace.

But we need to as why a NJ Senator is spending any time for two fugitives from another country who aren't even NJ residents. Isn't any time spent doing that taking away from the people who he represents?

The last one was a lying smear campaign but if he did make those calls on behalf of people who gave him money then he should be investigated and prosicuted or at least booted out of the Senate.

See how easy that is? You can do it too, Monroe.

U.S. Sen. Menendez pushes back on report of new federal investigation

By Matt Friedman/The Star-Ledger
January 24, 2014 at 3:07 PM

JERSEY CITY — U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez today strongly challenged allegations that he did special favors for a pair of Ecuadorian bankers who are fugitives from justice in their home country.

“A year after a false smear campaign was launched against me, once again we see anonymous sources – I wish we had these source quoted,” Menendez (D-N.J.) said at after a campaign event for U.S. Rep. Albio Sires (D-8th Dist.) “I’d like them to come forth.”

Citing unnamed Justice Department officials, WNBC-TV reported Thursday night that Menendez is under criminal investigation by the Department of Justice for making calls to the Department of State and the Department of Homeland Security to advocate William and Roberto Isaias, who are fugitives from justice in their native Ecuador and seek permanent residency in the United States.

Although the brothers are not legally allowed to donate to politicians, WNBC reported that their relatives gave $10,000 to Menendez’s 2012 re-election campaign and $100,000 to Democrats around the same time.

“My office works with literally hundreds of individuals and families working from New Jersey and across the country who are seeking help from the immigration process,” Menendez said. “The Isaias family made just a request. We addressed this request in an identical process that was no different than any others.”

Menendez said he had not heard anything from federal authorities and that the brothers have been in the United States since 2001, and that his office had nothing to do their status in this country. He said the Bush and Obama administrations have both refused Ecuador’s request to extradite them. And he said the current government in Ecuador is “corrupt.”

Menendez – who became chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations last year – said his office would “never – never - act on a contribution as a cause for action.”

“Now if people support my views, if they support my advocacy, they obviously may feel the desire to contribute. People generally contribute to people who share their views,” Menendez said.

Menendez already reportedly faces an investigation over whether he used his position to aide the business dealings of Florida eye doctor Salomon Melgen.
