A New Jersey Democrat and member of the U.S. Senate who was “credibly accused” (in the parlance of our times) of underage prostitution and bribery is fighting to hang onto his seat while his Republican opponent surges.
“The race for a U.S. Senate seat in New Jersey is a statistical dead heat, with incumbent Democrat Bob Menendez leading Republican challenger Bob Hugin by two percentage points, according to a Stockton University poll released today,” the school said.
“Menendez leads with 45 percent to Hugin’s 43 percent five weeks before the Nov. 6 election, according to poll numbers of likely voters who say they lean toward one candidate or the other,” according to the poll.
Eight percent of voters remain undecided.
Menendez has been embattled in a child prostitution and corruption scandal for much of his current Senate term, though he was recently acquitted of charges against him.
“The prostitution claims, first reported by The Daily Caller in 2012, suggested Menendez and his co-defendant on bribery charges, eye doctor and businessman Salomon Melgen, traveled to the Dominican Republic to have sex with prostitute,” according to U.S. News & World Report.
The last thing that Menendez wants is to answer for these heinous allegations in the context of the Brett Kavanaugh nomination hearings. Unlike the claims against Kavanaugh, claims against Menendez were corroborated, even though the government never pursued sex crime charges against him.
“Presented with specific, corroborated allegations that defendants Menendez and Melgen had sex with underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic, the Government responsibly and dutifully investigated those serious allegations,” prosecutors said.
Instead, the feds attempted to prosecute Menendez for corruption, claiming that he accepted bribes from Melgen in exchange for political favors.
Still, the standard has been set by Democrats. We have been told in light of the unprovable allegations against Kavanaugh, that whether or not claims can be proved holds no bearing on the claims themselves. Sex crimes are the only crimes in which the allegations alone equal guilt.
Will Democrats hold Menendez to the same standard which they are currently holding Kavanaugh when they enter the voting booth on Nov. 6?
Likely not. But as the latest polls indicate, Republicans just might.
TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District
It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”
Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.
Her lawlessness, ignorance and corruption have gone on for too long!
— DeAnna for Congress🇺🇸vs Nancy (@DeAnna4Congress) February 6, 2020
The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.
Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”
“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”
This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
