Dominican official links Daily Caller to alleged lies about Menendez

A top Dominican law enforcement official said Friday that a local lawyer has reported being paid by someone claiming to work for the conservative Web site the Daily Caller to find prostitutes who would lie and say they had sex for money with Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.).

The lawyer told Dominican investigators that a foreign man, who identified himself as “Carlos,” had offered him $5,000 to find and pay women in the Caribbean nation willing to make the claims about Menendez, according to Jose Antonio Polanco, district attorney for the La Romana region, where the investigation is being conducted.


The Last Letter

To: George W. Bush and Dick Cheney
From: Tomas Young

I write this letter on the 10th anniversary of the Iraq War on behalf of my fellow Iraq War veterans. I write this letter on behalf of the 4,488 soldiers and Marines who died in Iraq. I write this letter on behalf of the hundreds of thousands of veterans who have been wounded and on behalf of those whose wounds, physical and psychological, have destroyed their lives. I am one of those gravely wounded. I was paralyzed in an insurgent ambush in 2004 in Sadr City. My life is coming to an end. I am living under hospice care.


Police and FBI say Women paid to make sex claims against Sen. Menendez

The GOP was behind this false allegation............

Police in the Dominican Republic and the FBI said Monday that three women who claimed they had sex with Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) were actually paid by a third party to make false claims, according to The Associated Press.

Two of the women were paid $425 each, while a third was paid $300, police reportedly said. Police spokesperson Maximo Baez added that the payments were traced back to an attorney, Melanio Figueroa.

The allegations initially appeared to align with earlier claims passed to the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) by someone claiming to be named “Peter Williams.” Williams reportedly said that Menendez visited a prostitute in the Dominican Republic, but a subsequent FBI investigation turned up no evidence.

May 2012-The Hill

Members approved the Sequester Replacement Reconciliation Act in a party-line 218-199 vote. As expected, the bill was supported by nearly all Republicans — only 16 opposed it, and no Democrats supported it.

Republicans cast the bill as a first step back toward controlling federal spending, after years of allowing spending and deficits to balloon.

“We believe the purpose of the sequester was to replace the fact that Congress isn't governing,” House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said during the opening debate on the bill. “Well, let's have Congress govern. That's why we're doing this.”
