Following in Mel's footsteps

New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez, who last fall became the second U.S. senator with Cuban ties - after Florida's own Mel Martinez - is once again following Martinez - this time, moving into the Florida Republican's now-vacated suite of offices.

A release from the New Jersey Democrat's office announced the news like this:

"Our office is moving on Monday. We will be relocating to Hart 317 – Senator Martinez’s old office. Please – no jokes."

Not a chance.

Martinez has already set up in shop in the nearby Russell building.
