Dominican escort admits she was paid to make claim against Sen. Bob Menendez

As the old saying goes, if it walks like a Castro dictatorship plot to destroy an opponent, and it quacks like a Castro dictatorship plot to destroy an opponent, and it smells like a Castro dictatorship plot to destroy an opponent, chances are it is a Castro dictatorship plot to destroy an opponent.

Via the Washington Post:

Escort says Menendez prostitution claims were made up
An escort who appeared on a video claiming Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) paid her for sex has told Dominican Republic police that she was instead paid to make up the claims in a tape recording and has never met or seen the senator before, according to court documents and two people briefed on her claim.The woman identified a lawyer who approached her and a friend to make the videotape, according to affidavits obtained by the Post. That man has in turn identified another lawyer who gave him a script for the tape and paid him to find women to fabricate the claims, the affidavits say.

The escort was one of two women who taped videos that seems to support a tipster’s allegations that Menendez had patronized prostitutes while vacationing in the Dominican Republic.

FBI agents conducting interviews in the Dominican Republic have found no evidence to back up the tipster’s allegations, according to two people briefed on their work.

Menendez has denied the prostitution claims and called them entirely false “smears”used by enemies to try to defeat him in his recent re-election campaign and his selection as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

  1. If so, then Senator Menendez owes the “Right-Wing” an apology, and the nation a clarification. After all, he denounced the allegations as a “Right-Wing Smear.” Not a “Castroite” one. His “clarification” would thus hurt Castro where he most needs hurting: within the ranks of Menendez own party…we shall wait for this clarification….the Senator is sitting in the catbird’s seat to blow the lid off the Castro regime’s links to his party and their “expert” and “humanitarian” auxiliaries. After all, it ain’t exactly “right-wing Republicans” (Flake excepted) that the Center for Democracy in the America’s usually escorts to Castro’s fiefdom…

  2. She’s a prostitute.

    Whether she sells her body or her testimony is irrelevant.

    It’s not unreasonable to imagine that she may have been paid to say that she had sex with Menendez, then paid a higher sum to say that she lied about having sex with Menendez.

    In fact, it isn’t difficult to believe that she may have been paid to have sex with Menendez, then paid to say that she’d had sex with Menendez, then paid again to say that she lied about having sex with Menendez. A girl’s got bills you know.

    She’s a prostitute.

  3. Would such effort to clear a Republican Senator be made by the Washington Post?
    It’s a rhetorical question.

  4. She’s a sex worker, OK? Geez, the chauvinism around here. I’m sure Sandra Fluke would be appalled (she’s very sensitive, you know), though probably not as appalled as if she had to pay for her, uh, reproductive rights (as opposed to exercising them).

  5. Thanks, Alberto, for posting this Washington Post article. The Post tradionally has taken a favorable approach in its coverage of Communist Cuba. Thus, it’s highly unusual for it to characterize the allegations against Senator Menendez as a smear campaign. There is nothing that would please the Post more than for the allegations against the Senator to be found to be true. There are many forces lately in Washington, DC, that are hostile to the taking of a hardline approach against the Cuban authorities. With Senator Menendez’ consistent voting record to embrace a hardline posture against the Cuban authorities and with his elevation to the chairmanship of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee this year, it is easy to see why there are so many powerful vested interests trying to bring him down. The Senator would be well served to remember a quotation from the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: “A virtuous man never has too many enemies.” I hope that with the clearing of his reputation shortly, the forces behind this smear campaign will be exposed.

    • The salient fact that the Washington Post took the time to attempt to discredit the hooker story tells me that, unfortunately, the story may be true. How do I arrive at such a deductive leap? WaPo would NEVER defend a Republican in the same [t]horny situation.

      Remember what I’ve said: Bob Menendez, despite his position on Cuba, is a progressive; he’s one of their own. They know that his voting record matches their agenda, Cuba notwithstanding. So, they circle the wagons.

  6. The real sad fact is that given contradicting testimonies from a Dominican hooker and a US Senator, no one is sure whose testimony is to be believed, and in fact, hookers seem to inherently have a higher degree of credibility than politicians or the media.

    If THAT’S not a statement on the sad state of our culture, I don’t know what is.

  7. Luis,

    Our culture is leaking at the seams and about to burst…

    The lefty agenda has brought it to this point for the most part…
