FBI agents raid South Florida office of eye doc tied to gift, prostitution controversy with Sen. Bob Menendez

 

FBI agents raided the West Palm Beach business of an eye doctor suspected of providing free trips and even underage Dominican Republic prostitutes to New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez — who has denied what he calls the “fallacious allegations.”

Agents gathered at the medical-office complex of Dr. Salomon Melgen, a contributor to Menendez and other prominent politicians, late Tuesday night to start hauling away potential evidence in about a dozen white vans.

The investigation is believed to be focusing on Melgen’s finances and the allegations about Menendez’s trips and contact with prostitutes. A spokesman for Menendez could not be reached for comment, nor could Melgen.

Melgen has an outstanding IRS lien of $11.1 million, for taxes owed from 2006 to 2009, according to records filed with the Palm Beach County recorder’s office. A previous IRS lien for $6.2 million was released in 2011.

Hookers and dirty money? Sen. Menendez must be planning on becoming a Republican or trying to be elected from somewhere in Louisiana. May be both. Oh, that's right he's from New Jersey the northern version of Louisiana.

Wow. So democrats are somehow incapeable of deviant behavior? In my opinion (and statistics show) that all states dominated by these socialist democrats are both dirty in the literal sence. But also have the most violent crime and are leading in poverty. So whos the deviant? Im not a Republican. Nore a democrat. Im registered Independant.(and voted for Gary Johnson by the way) This party lines B.S. is just that. B.S. they BOTH abuse their power. And BOTH seek more power. We need to literally cut them down to size. And soon.

Menendez is a Democrat you lunatic. Bad behavior is part of the car the Devil drives. Its not isolated to just Conservatives. It's sad but as each illegal act is discovered then let the law prosecute the one doing it. If I were you Id look at Obamas behavior hes shredding the Constitution.
