Seems that Robert Menendez’s Dominican Republic buddy Dr. Salomon Melgen is also a big donor to other Democrats, AND perverts. Aside from being raided by the FBI and rumors going around that Melgen arranged ‘sex parties’ with Menendez in the Dominican Republic, now there’s word that Salomon Melgen is a big donor to other Democrats AND other perverts like Mark Foley.
Federal Election Commission records show that Dr. Salomon Melgen, the Miami ophthalmologist connected to New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez’s alleged prostitution scandal, has financed several high-ranking politicians from both political parties.
Over the years, Melgen and his wife Flor donated $2,000 to former President Bill Clinton and another $4,700 to outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s various campaigns. Melgen donated $3,000 to Hugh Rodham, Hillary’s brother, for his unsuccessful 1994 Senate campaign, and $1,000 to Al Gore’s failed 2000 bid for president.
The Melgens have donated $8,000 total to Minnesota Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar in recent cycles, $2,000 to New York Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer in 1998, and $9,600 to Democratic National Committee chairwoman and Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Interestingly, Melgen also donated $250 to former Florida Republican Rep. Mark Foley. Foley resigned in September 2006 after allegations surfaced that he had sent sexually suggestive emails and instant messages to underage male congressional pages.
