Did Democrat Senator Robert Menendez use his influence to advocate for Dominican business favors for Salomon Melgen?
Most of the story involving the Robert Menendez scandal revolves around the question if Menendez had sex with under-aged prostitutes. But there is more to this story than sex with under-aged prostitutes. According to The Other McCain, there are more details leaking out about Robert Menendez and Dr. Saloman Melgen. According to the site, Menendez used his influence to advocate for a Dominican Republic business deal that helped Salomon Melgen that could be worth $500 million to $1 billion over two decades. Again, no proof of this yet, but this just adds to the complexity of the Menendez scandal.
Follow the money – if Melgen had a billion-dollar contract at stake, his “friendship” with Senator Menendez was obviously more than a mere social acquaintance, which doesn’t necessarily mean that it was illegal for Menendez to pressure the administration to help Melgen enforce his Dominican port security contract. But how and why does a Florida opthamologist become an international port-security mogul?
