Why The Bob Menendez Story Matters

The Daily Caller just dropped a story on Sen. Bob Menendez, a Democrat up for reelection in New Jersey:

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.

Menendez was treated well by his high roller campaign donor, the article details, flying the Senator around on his plane and hosting him at his tropical home. Will the donor be reimbursed? Is it an in-kind contribution?

Menendez doesn’t have much tolerance for the use of prostitutes by others, notes Kerry Picket.

He railed against the Secret Service agents caught with prostitutes earlier this year.

For those who may think the story isn’t important, stop and think for a moment about another senate seat in play. While Menendez leads his GOP challenger Joe Kyrillos by double digits, it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that a sordid scandal would knock free a senate seat. How badly do you want Obamacare repealed?

The bigger story is Menendez’s offense. The crime isn’t that he’s a single man who paid for prostitutes, the crime is his hypocrisy. The crime is that Menendez acts like a savior on the front lines of the “war on women.”

Does he limit his “concern” for American women? Dominican women are excluded? This is the hypocrisy of the left. Sex scandals and double standards don’t matter if the antagonist is a Democrat.

So where does Bob Menendez stand on women’s rights, and can we start with the right of the prostitutes to get the money Menendez promised them?
