Media Takes Orders from Senator Menendez on How They Should Cover His Sex Scandal
Bob Menendez, the senator from New Jersey, finds himself embroiled in a bit of a sex scandal, going down to the Dominican Republic with a donor from here in South Florida on a donor’s plane, which happens to be a Challenger 600. And Bob Menendez finally speaking about this said that (paraphrasing), “Well, you know, yeah, yeah, I forgot to reimburse my donor for the flights. The reimbursement fell through the cracks.” He actually said that.
By the way, all of this happened, all of this became known before the election, and it didn’t matter. And, you know, the media, the Drive-Bys and so forth, they’re not really interested in this, and they’re being driven to the Menendez story by Menendez and his staff, and they’re covering the story the way Menendez wants. The Menendez staff is directing CNN to a Univision story where all these girls down there in the Dominican are virgins, Menendez couldn’ta done anything.
Then you have other media people saying, “You know what, it’s a Democrat. There’s no such thing as a sex scandal with a Democrat.” (laughing) The Democrats don’t make noise about family values and morality and all that. A Democrat having sex with a 16 year, it’s no big deal. It’s been done before. A 17-year-old, no big deal, 18, doesn’t matter, been there, done that.
