Have You Heard The One About The Democrat And The Dominican Hooker?

February 4, 2013

It’s not a joke, it’s a story, a scandal in fact but unless you read conservative blogs and news outlets you probably haven’t heard about it because the politician at the center of it all is a Democrat.

Stacy McCain has a big scoop that’s getting a lot of play at Memeorandum today.

The shadowy (and probably pseudonymous) tipster “Peter Williams” gave specific details about the prostitutes who were allegedly provided to New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez in the Dominican Republic. Two Miami Herald reporters, Kathleen McGrory and Melissa Sanchez, traveled to Santo Domingo to check out the story and, while they were unable to locate the prostitutes, they were able to confirm certain details:

[S]hreds of evidence in Santo Domingo show that, at the very least, the women Williams described exist.
Take an apartment in Santo Domingo’s upscale Gazcue neighborhood that Williams said was used for sexual liaisons. In April emails to  a watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, Williams alleged that Dr. Salomon Melgen, a friend and major campaign donor to Menendez, rented a unit for a Brazilian prostitute named Maria and a Colombian prostitute named Geraldine.

In a related development which should surprise no one, Jim Treacher points out that the fine folks of BuzzFeed who wrote dozens of stories about Binders, Big Bird, horses, and anything else they could think of to make Republicans look bad, have written exactly ONE story about the Menendez scandal.
