Now we find out that the FBI has been investigating top Democratic Senator Bob Menendez for having sex with underage Dominican hookers


Barack Obama, former Dem Governor Jon Corzine and Senator Bob Menendez
...
 The Daily Mail reported:
 
Documents published online for the first time Thursday indicate that the FBI opened an inquiry into New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez on August 1, 2012, focusing on repeated trips he took to the Dominican Republic with longtime campaign contributor and Miami eye doctor Salomon Melgen. TheDC reported in November that Menendez purchased the service of prostitutes in that Caribbean nation at a series of alcohol-fueled sex parties.

Dr. Salomon Melgen Donates Nearly $200K to Dems

Dr. Salomon Melgen, now currently under investigation by the FBI alongside Sen. Bob Menendez (D-New Jersey) for their alleged activities with underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic, is no stranger to both current and former Democrat Senators -
 
FEC records show that “America’s Most Compassionate Doctor” has donated over $193,000 in support of Democrats in the Senate and other Congressional candidates, and PACs.

Melgen contributed to some very notable campaigns including:
 
Hillary Clinton for President
Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY)
Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT)
Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL)
Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ)
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz

http://www.voxxi.com/dr-salomon-melgen-recognized-with-life-time-achievement-award/
Dr. Salomon Melgen received lifetime achievement award


National Hispanic leader and philanthropist, Dr. Salomon Melgen received the ”Lifetime Honorary Member Award,” from the Dominican Healthcare Association of Florida, during the fundraiser Gala “Noche en Honor al Médico Dominicano” at the historic Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Fla., Friday night.
 
VOXXI chairman and co-Founder, Melgen was honored on the basis of  his professional achievements, personal contribution to the association and  service to the community at large.
 
“The journey to get here tonight has not been an easy one.  When I came to the United States from the Dominican Republic, I faced many challenges. I did not speak the language and I was also discriminated against for being Hispanic,” said Melgen, during his acceptance speech. “But when one door closes, another one opens. We must learn how to fight and be persistent. It is the only secret to success in life.”
 
And success he’s had in everything he’s set his mind and heart to.

Soon after completing his training at Harvard University in 1986, Melgen, who was born and raised in Dominican Republic and experienced first hand the struggles of being an immigrant, became the first surgeon to perform outpatient retina surgery in South Florida, and became a pioneer in laser therapy.
 
In 1988, the doctor founded Vitreo Retinal Consultants, which at the time was affiliated to  Harvard Medical School’s Schepens Eye Research Institute (the largest independent eye research institute in the United States). Together they conducted successful research leading to the use of the Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscope (SLO), which became the basis of the development of instruments that are currently utilized to diagnose and treat retina-related diseases.
 
“He’s well recognized not only in Florida, but in the whole country for his treatments for eye diseases,” said Daisy J. Baez, founder and executive director of the Dominican Health Care Association, who added that, with the award, they wanted to recognize Melgen’s significant contributions to the medical profession as well as express gratitude for his support to the association.
 
“Dr. Melgen attended our very first meeting,” Baez said. “He listened to our ideas and provided encouragement, feedback and guidance. He made us believe our cause was worthy and his input has been always very valuable.”
 
Patient’s interests at heart
 
Beyond his pioneering work in the medical field, what sets Melgen apart from most other doctors is that he places the patient’s interest at heart, which has earned him four times the award as one of the United States’ most compassionate doctors.

Emails show FBI investigating Sen. Bob Menendez for sleeping with underage Dominican prostitutes
 01/25/2013

Documents published online for the first time Thursday indicate that the FBI opened an inquiry into New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez on August 1, 2012, focusing on repeated trips he took to the Dominican Republic with longtime campaign contributor and Miami eye doctor Salomon Melgen. TheDC reported in November that Menendez purchased the service of prostitutes in that Caribbean nation at a series of alcohol-fueled sex parties.
 
The documents, which The Daily Caller had obtained hours earlier from an anonymous source, also indicate that Carrie Levine, research director at Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), was alerted on April 9, 2012 to Menendez’s habit of paying for sex while outside the United States

...
With an interviewer asking her to identify a photograph of Menendez, the unnamed woman replies, “I don’t need to look again. I’m quite sure this is Bob Menendez, the friend of Salomon Melgen I had sexual relations with. I had sexual relations with him several times and I can’t forget his face.”
 
“I actually met him as Bob,” she says in the transcript. “Then I knew who he was, that he’s a Senator in the United States and that his name is Bob Menendez.”
 
Asked how often she had sex with the senator, she replies, “In 2009 I saw Bob three times at least. The first one in February, and then in May and June. I recall his visit in June so well because that month was my 17th birthday. Then we met twice one in May 2010 and then in December 2011. … I was underage when I met him. But I can’t say for sure whether he knew it or not.”

She is identified in the transcript as “young participant #2.”
 
The age of consent in the Dominican Republic is 18.

The PROTECT Act, a U.S. law passed in 2003, made it a federal crime for Americans to engage in sex for money with anyone under 18, even in countries where the age of consent is lower.
 
CREW executive director Melanie Sloan told TheDC on Thursday evening that her organization shared the allegations it received with federal law enforcement

Information made available to Schwartz and Levine at that time included allegations that some of Menendez’s prostitutes were as young as 16.

The source also alleged that Sen. Menendez was taking “non-authorized trips” to the Dominican Republic, suggesting that he may have been evading Senate Ethics committee rules covering disclosures when third parties pay for a senator’s travel. (RELATED: NRSC says Menendez may have broken Senate ethics rules, federal campaign finance laws)

No Doc... likely he didn't "tick off his handlers" rather he drew the short straw...

He may have been getting ready to spill some beans, but maybe not... In any case this is why virtually everyone who climbs to high position in this "gangsta" power structure has to do something heinous for their "leaders"... a gang initiation if you will. Just try to imagine the crap Obama, Corzine, Feinstein and Biden have done...

This is more likely a "take the heat off" ploy... there will be several more over the next few weeks in the run up to the big false flag... beware the Ides of March...

Dominican Republic Prostitution
...
Bringing a girl back to his hotel is usually not a problem for a tourist as most hotels allow guests. The hotels policy generally is to make sure the girl has a “cedula”. This is the national identity document that states that the girl is over 18 years of age. It is common practice for the hotel to take the cedula and return it to the girl when she leaves. This way, if there is any problem while the girl is there such as an allegation that valuables are missing, the hotel can take the girl’s cedula and go directly to the police.
...
Some women in the more affluent areas of the country work as prostitutes in a different manner. They are what are known as “beeper chicas” and cater to more affluent Dominican males. Their clients are generally doctors, lawyers, businessmen, etc. What these girls generally do is enroll in a university and take classes to give the false impression that they are interested in getting an education and mask the fact that they are hookers. However, they are always on call to their affluent Dominican clients. Once “beeped”, she will usually meet a client in an upscale motel and he will pay a generous amount of money to have sex with her. Some of these girls are actual models and model for well known companies. However, they will make quite a bit of money on the side as “beeper chicas”.

Obviously, a big health risk for prostitutes is the possibility of contracting STDs. The HIV rate among prostitutes is naturally higher than among the general population. Additionally, diseases such as Chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, trichomoniasis, syphilis and others are common. Unfortunately, some of these prostitutes are not educated in the use of condoms. Therefore, it is very possible that a prostitute may contract one or more STDs and pass it on.

Prostitution is technically legal in the Dominican Republic. It is illegal however for a third party (pimp) to have any involvement. In an effort for police to counteract the problem in tourist areas, they will generally arrest any girl who appears to be a prostitute and is walking on the street after dark for loitering. To avoid arrest, the girls simply take a motoconcho taxi directly to the discos and operate from there. If they leave with a client, they will ask him to provide them with the motoconcho fare back to the disco or for him to walk her back himself. If the girl is being escorted down the street by a man, the police will leave her alone. If a prostitute is arrested for loitering, she may spend several days in jail and will generally have to pay the police to be released. She might get this money from a family member, a boyfriend or more likely, another prostitute. Then immediately upon release, she will resume the life she knows.

  Federal Bureau of Investigation. Some of these guys are dedicated, especialy so agents assigned to bank robery, mass murderers, etc.
Can't knock em all, can we. However we can single out superiors who coordinte the teams assigned to carry out their orders knowing its all politicial, and ultimelty protecting the true power. They have their LIL teams who are devoted, loyal NWO sucklings.
 These guys are humans who have decided they can't fight the trend, do your job and play ball, wait for retitement or climb the ladder.
 Just take a close look at Eric the Holder and give a thought!
 He got caught, my arese, he was targeted, they have ears and eyews everywhere, he mucked up, stepped on the wrong toes or was loose lipped, just my oppinion.
  Not to say he isnt a parasite.

THE GOOD OLD DAYS  2:30 pm February 28, 2011



FBI File: Ted Kennedy Had Secret Sex Parties, Rented Out Brothel

Ted Kennedy is dead, so we are now able to look at his (albeit very redacted) FBI files to see some of the very Kennedy sorts of things he did over the years.

For example: An ambassador’s ex-wife said he and his brothers had sex parties with Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and Marilyn Monroe at a New York hotel.

Also: He rented out an entire brothel in South America for one night in the 1960s, where he was meeting with various Reds and other leftist people part of the giving-people-access-to-health care conspiracy.

Still, even when Teddy was renting out brothels for himself, he was a man of the people: “Kennedy allegedly invited one of the Embassy chauffeurs to participate in the night’s activities.” What a kind man.

This was all obtained from the FBI by the right-wing Judicial Watch, an organization that apparently hates sex and fun:
 
“The FBI’s reluctance to follow the law and release this material shows that it, too, is not above politics.

Our tough fight with the Obama administration shows that it was not keen on letting the American people know that Ted Kennedy, one of Obama’s leftist politician heroes, liked to hang out with communists and prostitutes,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

“We will continue to investigate why the FBI improperly chose to keep this information secret.”
 
If it was kept secret, it wouldn’t be a secret sex party, duh. It would just be a sex party, which sounds gross.

Ted Kennedy Sought To Rent Brothel: 1961 Memo

...
WASHINGTON — An FBI file contends that a young Edward M. Kennedy arranged to rent a brothel for a night while visiting Chile in 1961, a year before he was elected to the Senate.

The previously redacted State Department memo, dated Dec. 28, 1961, was released by Judicial Watch, a Washington-based organization that said it obtained it through a Freedom of Information lawsuit.

According to the memo, the Massachusetts Democrat made arrangements to rent the brothel "for an entire night" in Santiago earlier in 1961. "Kennedy allegedly invited one of the Embassy chauffeurs to participate in the night's activities," according to the memo.

One State Department official described Kennedy as "pompous and a spoiled brat," according to the memo. Kennedy was making a fact-finding trip to several Latin American countries. "Kennedy met with a number of individuals known to have communist sympathies," the memo said.
Kennedy was a 29-year-old assistant district attorney in Boston at the time of the trip. He was elected to the Senate in 1962 and served more than four decades until his death in 2009.

Oh now they're cleaning up evidence of the eye doctor procurer (and probably a Dem money BUNDLER ).... Melgen

i love how he says he was discriminated ... I only wish i could get discriminated into Harvard med school. Did he procure DR girls as a way of earning his way thru college?

“The journey to get here tonight has not been an easy one.  When I came to the United States from the Dominican Republic, I faced many challenges. I did not speak the language and I was also discriminated against for being Hispanic,” said Melgen, during his acceptance speech. “But when one door closes, another one opens.

FBI raids Florida eye clinic of donor linked to Sen. Bob Menendez’s prostitution scandal
 1:10 AM 01/30/2013

FBI agents have raided the West Palm Beach, Fla. eye clinic owned by Dr. Salomon Melgen, the wealthy donor to New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez who allegedly procured prostitutes for him — some of them as young as 16 — during trips to the Dominican Republic.
 
The Miami Herald reported that federal agents lined up vans outside the Melgen Eye Center late Tuesday night to haul away evidence in the case.

They seem to want to get rid of the New Jersey Senator over what? Corzine?? How did a junior Senator get on the high end senate committees? Unless he had tight connections and now he's out with them

http://www.menendez.senate.gov/biography/
Bob was sworn in to the Senate on January 18, 2006, having been appointed by New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine to fill the remainder of his term. Later that year, New Jerseyans elected Bob to serve a full six-year term as United States Senator.

He currently serves on the Senate Committees on Finance; Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs; and Foreign Relations. Bob is also the Chairman of the Banking Subcommittee on Housing, Transportation and Community Development; and the Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere, Peace Corps, and Global Narcotics Affairs.

As New Jersey continues on its long road to recovery from Hurricane Sandy, Senator Menendez will continue working to secure the resources needed to help New Jersey rebuild. Working together, at all levels of government, New Jersey will emerge stronger than ever. Click Here for photos from Senator Menendez's tour of storm damage.

Senate Ethics Committee investigating Menendez


The Senate Ethics Committee is reviewing whether Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., inappropriately accepted gifts from a political donor who is under investigation by federal investigators.
 

"We are aware of the news reports regarding the FBI raid on Dr. Melgen's office," Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., the top Republican on the ethics committee, said to CBS News in a statement. "The Ethics Committee will follow its established procedures in this matter."

Reid fends off questions about Menendez allegations
By Alexander Bolton - 01/31/13

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) fended off questions about Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) at a press conference about immigration reform
...

Reid defended the Menendez as a “friend” and “outstanding senator” but declined to discuss any details he may have had with the New Jersey lawmaker about media reports of allegations that he had sex with prostitutes in the Dominican Republic.
 
“First of all, Bob Menendez is my friend. He’s an outstanding senator. Any questions in this regard, direct to him. I don’t know anything about it,” Reid said.

The Good Fight
...
I come from a mining town.

But by the time I came along - December 2, 1939 - the leading industry in my hometown of Searchlight, Nevada, was no longer mining, it was prostitution. I don't exaggerate. There was a local law that said you could not have a house of prostitution or a place that served alcohol within so many feet of a school. Once, when it was determined that one of the clubs was in violation of this law, they moved the school.

As a boy, I learned to swim at a whorehouse. Nobody in town had ever seen such a fancy inground tiled pool in their lives as the pool at the El Rey. Or any pool at all, for that matter. At least nobody that we knew. The El Ray was the main bordello when I was growing up in Searchlight. Every Thursday afternoon, the whoremonger in town, a kindly bear of a man by the name of Willie Martello, would ask the girls who worked the El Rey to clear out, and he'd invite the children in town, usually no more than a dozen of so at a time, to swim in his pool. And we would live the life of Riley for a couple of hours, splashing in the azure blue of that whorehouse pool. This was a rare luxury in a hard town. When I was coming up, there were several other brothels in Searchlight - the Crystal Club, Searchlight Casino, Sandy's - thirteen in all, and no churches to be found.

And we would live the life of Riley for a couple of hours, splashing in the azure blue of that whorehouse pool. This was a rare luxury in a hard town. When I was coming up, there were several other brothels in Searchlight - the Crystal Club, Searchlight Casino, Sandy's - thirteen in all, and no churches to be found.

  Story hour with Harry Reid.

  Make us laugh Harry Reid.

  What's this got to do with Menendez?

  If guilty, shouldn't Menendez be categorized as a sex offender?

The more they have on a POL the less chance of him spilling his guts.
  I had a boss who couldn't find his backside with both hands, I asked him "How the muck did you ever get to be management"
 He didn't look at me but said with a grin, he saw one of the big dogs scre***ING A GOOSE,  I resigned shortly after.
 This post has brought back that memory.  He was smiling but couldn't look at me, kinda like he just had the goods on some high mucker leverage.
 The FBI all of a sudden found this out, YUP OK (3 bags full). These sucklings are paying for ever step up that ladder, they are expendable if they should stray from the pack.

Robert Menendez denies prostitute ‘smears’

By KEVIN ROBILLARD | 2/4/13 6:34 PM EST
Sen. Robert Menendez denounced allegations that he had flown to the Dominican Republic to solicit prostitutes as “smears” from “right-wing blogs” Monday, his first comments on the lurid accusations.

“The smears, the smears that right-wing blogs have been pushing since the election,” the New Jersey Democrat told CNN. “That is totally unsubstantiated. It’s amazing to me that anonymous, nameless, faceless individuals on a website can drive that kind of story into the mainstream. But that’s what they’ve done successfully. Now, nobody can find them, no one ever met them, nobody ever talked to them, but that’s where we’re at. The bottom line is all of those smears are absolutely false, and that’s the bottom line.”


In November, shortly before Menendez stood for reelection, The Daily Caller, a conservative website, published an article alleging Menendez had flown to the Dominican Republic to sleep with prostitutes, some of whom were underage. One of the alleged prostitutes told Univision earlier Monday she had never met or seen Menendez.

New Jersey senator accused of paying for sex in Dominican Republic says allegations are part of a smear campaign

A prominent Dominican lawyer who has been accused of hosting outings on his yacht in which a New Jersey senator used the services of prostitutes strongly denied the allegations on Monday and said he would seek a criminal investigation into the source of the reports.

Senator Robert Menendez also issued his own denial of the allegations from Washington, calling them "smears."

HookerGate: Miami Herald Confirms Elements of Menendez Prostitute Story

Posted on | February 4, 2013 | 12 Comments and 5 Reactions

The shadowy (and probably pseudonymous) tipster “Peter Williams” gave specific details about the prostitutes who were allegedly provided to New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez in the Dominican Republic. Two Miami Herald reporters, Kathleen McGrory and Melissa Sanchez, traveled to Santo Domingo to check out the story and, while they were unable to locate the prostitutes, they were able to confirm certain details:

Shreds of evidence in Santo Domingo show that, at the very least, the women Williams described exist.
 Take an apartment in Santo Domingo’s upscale Gazcue neighborhood that Williams said was used for sexual liaisons.

In April emails to  a watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, Williams alleged that Dr. Salomon Melgen, a friend and major campaign donor to Menendez, rented a unit for a Brazilian prostitute named Maria and a Colombian prostitute named Geraldine.

 The apartment exists. When reached by phone, the landlady said that two young women named Geraldine and Maria had indeed lived there last year, and said the nationalities matched.

 However, the landlady, who declined to be named, did not believe the women to be prostitutes — she said she thought they were beautiful foreign exchange students — and had never heard of Menendez or Melgen visiting the apartment. But she complained that the women had nearly destroyed the unit, even leaving the wallpaper torn up when they abandoned the apartment last year.

“They behaved very badly,” she said. The apartment has since been rented to others and is now back on the market for $1,000 a month.

You can read the whole thing. The details confirmed by the two Miami Herald reporters are important because — as anyone with experience chasing this kind of story would tell you — if the story were totally bogus, basic facts like names and addresses wouldn’t check out.
...
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/02/03/The-Mystery-Flight-of-Bob-Menendez

This is highly interesting, because on Jan. 4, Menendez paid back Dr. Melgen $58,500 for three flights, but this (alleged) Easter weekend trip wasn’t one of those, and it was during the Easter weekend trip that one of the sex parties (allegedly) took place.

Geez are these guys in charge of the drug shipments TOO?  Hookers and Coke and Dope Inc.

They obviously want to control the screening of DR shipments to the US for SOME REASON HMMMMM... what could it be?

Menendez Backed Donor on Port Security Plan
By ERIC LIPTON and WILLIAM K. RASHBAUM
Published: February 10, 2013

WASHINGTON — Senator Robert Menendez sought to discourage any plan by the United States government to donate port security equipment to the Dominican Republic, citing concern that the advanced screening gear might undermine efforts by a private company — run by a major campaign contributor and friend of his — to do the work.

...
Mr. Menendez has broadly rejected any suggestion that his official actions have been driven by an effort to favor Dr. Melgen, a wealthy Florida ophthalmologist who has repeatedly flown the senator on his private plane and has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to support Democrats in the Senate as well as Mr. Menendez’s re-election campaign.

“Nobody has bought me, No. 1. Nobody. Never,” Mr. Menendez said in an interview late last week with Univision, the Spanish-language news station. “In the 20 years that I have been in Congress, never has it been suggested that this could even be possible.”

The relationship between Dr. Melgen and the New Jersey senator has drawn scrutiny in recent weeks as Mr. Menendez, a Democrat, has taken over the chairmanship of the powerful Foreign Relations Committee.
...
But the questions about the port security contract are potentially more troubling for Mr. Menendez, who is already facing questions over his fitness for the Foreign Relations Committee chairmanship, because the contract involved a foreign policy concern: curbing the flow of cocaine to the United States from the Dominican Republic.


http://www.mahalo.com/opium/


Mr. Menendez and Dr. Melgen have been friends since the 1990s, around the time Mr. Menendez was first elected to the House of Representatives and began regularly visiting the Dominican Republic, where Dr. Melgen has a home in Casa de Campo, a gated oceanfront resort where houses cost as much as $20 million.
...
In 2006, the Department of Homeland Security donated to the Dominican Republic one X-ray scanning device, which is used at Multimodal Caucedo, one of its largest ports, where Dominican inspectors worked alongside representatives from the United States government to scan more than 1,700 containers last year. Nearly 5,000 pounds of cocaine was found hidden in a cargo container of peaches in the first week the equipment went into operation.
...
In February 2006, just as Mr. Menendez was beginning his push to require screening of all ship containers headed to the United States, Dr. Melgen began negotiations to buy a small company that had a longstanding contract to do such inspections in the Dominican Republic.

His plan was to provide his own X-ray equipment, purchased with private funds, and then charge the Dominican government to do the inspections
...
Abinader Fortunato, a spokesman for the Dominican customs agency, said late last week that Dr. Melgen’s contract wrongly leaves screening in the hands of a private company and not a state agency
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

More hearsay evidence but the model is from court records. How is Melgen floating in money?...:

Dominican government official: Sen. Bob Menendez a frequent guest at ‘sex, hookers and drinking’ parties

A high-level government official from the Dominican Republic told The Daily Caller that New Jersey Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez and wealthy campaign donor Dr. Salomon Melgen have been having sex parties on the Caribbean nation for years.
 
“As far as Bob Menendez is concerned he has a very good life there,” the official said during an in-person interview with TheDC. “He likes sexual things.”

The source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he fears retribution from powerful people connected to Menendez and Melgen, has direct knowledge of the goings-on at Melgen’s private villa in the luxurious Dominican Casa de Campo resort. He said Menendez travels with Melgen to the property at least three times per year.

Menendez Friend: 'We Spend Every Easter Together' in Dominican Republic
13 Feb 2013

A friend of New Jersey Democratic Senator Bob Menendez and Democratic Party mega-donor Dr. Salomon Melgen may have mistakenly confirmed more details of the senator’s alleged wrongdoing.
 
On Monday, Dominican Republic lawyer and politician Vinicio Castillo Seman confirmed that Menendez was at the posh Casa de Campo resort on Easter last year.
 
“I’ve known Menendez as a friend and of my cousin Salomon Melgen,” Castillo said, according to the news outlet Dominican Today. “No one has come forward on the allegations and evil accusations, we spend every Easter together in Casa de Campo.”
 
Menendez is currently under investigation by the Senate Ethics Committee for his relationship with Melgen.


http://dailycaller.com/2013/02/12/court-documents-menendez-donor-leased-oceanfront-condo-for-alleged-prostitute/

Court records show that Salomon Melgen, the longtime Democratic donor linked to New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez, provided an oceanfront condominium to a Ukranian model at the center of prostitution allegations lodged against both men.

The Palm Beach Post reported Sunday that Melgen arranged for Svitlana Buchyk to occupy a condo he leased for her on Singer Island near Palm Beach, Florida in 2009. (RELATED SLIDESHOW: Meet one of Bob Menendez’s alleged call girls)

Svitlana Buchyk: Mystery Woman in Menendez HookerGate Scandal
Posted on | February 4, 2013

Matthew Boyle of Breitbart.com just published a photo of a woman who reportedly “worked” for Dr. Salomon Melgen, the Palm Beach opthamologist at the center of the scandal surrounding embattled Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.). Melgen’s office was raided by the FBI last week, amid accusations that Menendez attended “wild sex parties” with prostitutes during trips to the Dominican Republic provided by Melgen.

The Russian-born woman, Svitlana Buchyk, figures prominently in the prostitution accusations against the scandal-plagued Menendez, who is in line to become chairman of the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee.

Kathleen McGrory and Melissa Sanchez of the Miami Herald reported:

Public records show that a woman named Svitlana Buchyk got into a minor crash while driving a Chevrolet Impala on Miracle Mile in Coral Gables in 2010. The car belonged to Melgen’s wife.

Buchyk gave Melgen’s North Palm Beach address as her own.

 Buchyk spoke briefly with a Miami Herald reporter by telephone Thursday, saying she had worked for Melgen in the past.
 But Buchyk wouldn’t answer questions on the type of work she did, and was eager to defend Melgen — particularly when asked about stories of Melgen’s alleged sexual liaisons with prostitutes.

 “He is an amazing person,” she said. “He was always with his family. There is nothing else I can say.”
 Buchyk added that many women would have liked to have spent time with her former employer.
“He treated me well,” she said. “He had money. He was very generous.”
...

Melgen has a history of spending big money on his mistresses, Boyle reports, noting a 2002 federal court case involving Yuddehiris Dorrejo, a woman on whom Melgen spent $700,000, allegedly in exchange for ”an intimate romantic relationship” that began in 1998.

Melgen, who has contributed generously to Menendez’s political campaigns, reportedly owes $11.1 million in unpaid federal income taxes.

If you're involved with drug and sex trafficking and money laundering then you need a powerful person in the government for cover. Also with that kind of protection , why pay taxes or is it just being sloppy ?

EXCLUSIVE: Bob Menendez, prostitution, and the security-industrial complex
 February 5, 2013 by supermario  

The accusations against Senator Bob Menendez of being involved with underage prostitutes is only the tip of the iceberg of a much bigger scandal, involving shady deals and a war between two port security companies and the Dominican Republic Government.

By Mario Andrade

...
Melgen took the senator to a luxury resort in the Dominican Republic, called Casa de Campo.

Coincidently, this is the same resort that has been used by organized crime as a cocaine stash house. Puerto Rican and Russian drug traffickers ran smuggling operations from Casa de Campo.

 They would buy cocaine from the Colombian drug cartels and ship it to Puerto Rico and Europe. The smugglers were busted a year ago with 120 kilos of cocaine. It is said that after that local drug ring was dissolved, the Mexican Sinaloa Cartel moved in… but that’s another story.

According to many U.S. media outlets, Mr. Melgen is being investigated by the FBI for ‘healthcare fraud.’ However, there may be more to this story. In 2010, Dr. Melgen purchased half of a company stake in the Dominican Republic, called ICSSI.

Huge drug ring shipping tons of cocaine from Casa de Campo - Bought from Cali Cartel

DominicanToday.com - The National Drugs Control Agency (DNCD) yesterday busted an international drug trafficking ring based in the country’s icon resort Casa de Campo, La Romana (east), seized 122 kilos of cocaine on a boat headed to Puerto Rico.
 
It arrested 29 people, among them five Puerto Ricans and 17 Russians, the latter the crew of a ship where the drug would’ve been shipped and one Dominican and one Colombian.
 
In the resort the authorities also seized two villas, two apartments, a yacht, a freighter used to transport fuel and molasses to Caribbean islands, and an airplane.
 
“This structure had its operation between the capital and La Romana, where from a private pier an amount of cocaine was sent and money was received from the United States,” said DNCD spokesman Roberto Lebrón.
 
He said “Operation earthquake” had the ring under surveillance for a year, and the detainees are being questioned in DNCD headquarters.
 
Lebrón said the arrests were closely coordinated with the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
 
The Dominicans detained are Cinthia Catherine Paula Valerio, Scarle Crisoris Gross de los Santos, Yanira Martínez Pión, Félix María de la Cruz and Genito Toribio Custodio
 
Puerto Rican headed the ring
 
The DNCD said the Puerto Rican Omar Alberto Diaz Pavón is the owner of the villas and head of the network; Eduardo Larios Sanchez is the owner of the boat and the yatch where the cocaine was found; Alex Ocasio, pilot and owner of the airplane retained at the La Romana International Airport, and Edwin Nieves Lozado, identified at the contact to buy the drug.
 
“That network receive drug from South America, especially Colombia, to hold it in the East region, and from there, sent it to Puerto Rico. The money received from those transactions was used to buy properties worth millions, especially villas and apartments,” Lebrón said.
  
UPDATE: Traffickers based in famous resort bought drugs from Cali Cartel
 
The group of drug traffickers that operated out of Dominican Republic’s most famous resort Casa de Campo, in eastern La Romana obtained cocaine from the once powerful Cali Cartel and was dismantled after three years of surveillance by the DEA, which detected suspicious financial transactions in Grand Cayman by those detained Tuesday.
 
The paper trail from those transactions determined that the network had set up operations in Dominican territory since around 2001 and kept a low profile while its ringleaders amassed their fortunes.
 
That’s how around three years the National Drugs Control Agency was informed of the group’s existence and began to detect several shipments of large amounts of money on an airplane seized Sunday.
 
In several occasions antinarcotics agents seized money while other confiscations were conducted by Customs agents, but assuring that the ringleaders didn’t become aware that they were the final objective of those operations.
 
Thus far the ring is considered an independent group of narcotics traffickers which received cocaine from the Cali Cartel, brought it to Dominican Republic to then send it to Puerto Rico using boats, yachts and cargo ships. From the neighboring island they brought the profits in dollars in the small plane seized Tuesday, which flew in and out of the La Romana International Airport.
 
The band was formed mostly by Puerto Ricans and Colombians, with Dominican collaborators. The 17 Russians arrested in the raid were apparently part of the crew of the ship where the 122 kilos of cocaine seized during the weekend would be sent to Puerto Rico.
 
The five women arrested, including one Colombian, would be simple “ladies of company” hired by the traffickers for a party they had planned to celebrate the success of one of their drug transactions. They are being held since yesterday in DNCD headquarters to determine if they in fact form part of the drug traffickers.
 
The Puerto Rican Omar Alberto Diaz Pavón, owner of the villas and presumed ringleader; Eduardo Larios Sanchez, owner  the retained ship and boat and in whose power the cocaine was found; Alex Ocasio Morales, an employee of the airline American Eagle, who was Diaz Pavón’s alleged contact to mobilize the money from his “command and control center” located in the villa number 31  the street Barrance Este, in Casa de Campo, valued at least US$20.0 million.

It's amazing when all the pieces fit together. They will push the sex angle when tons of cocaine are being moved and billions of dollars are being laundered in the caymans.  The Spice must flow.

Also notice New Jersey with him and Corzine - Remember ESSO - Standard Oil of New Jersey is the home of the Rockefeller Empire. They still OWN the state , financially and politically.

Oh and why didn't Mend. pay for the melgan flights with his offshore slush money? That he forgot to pay in the first place. Because it was AFTER he'd been found out, he couldn't use that money now. He had to use his own onshore US money.

Senator Called On to Recuse Himself from MF Global Hearings

4:00 PM, May 7, 2012 • By DANIEL HALPER

New Jersey Senate candidate Joe Kyrillos, a Republican, is calling on Senator Bob Menendez, a Democrat, to recuse himself from congressional hearings on MF Global, the financial firm led by Jon Corzine that went under last year.

There's been no word yet whether Menendez will grant this request.
 
"I am concerned that Senator Menendez’s personal and professional relationship with former New Jersey Governor and MF Global Holdings CEO Jon Corzine could be a conflict of interest during the Committee’s investigation," said Kyrillos in a statement.
 
In 2006, when Corzine himself was governor of New Jersey, the now embattled money man appointed Menendez to the U.S. Senate. Kyrillos worries that this relationship will interfere with Menendez's ability to do his job in the Senate.
 
Corzine is still an Obama campaign bundler, raising more than $500,000 last quarter for the president relection effort.

Posted on May 8, 2012 by Nick Sorrentino

New Jersey Senator, and Jon Corzine appointee Bob Menendez has yet to recuse himself from the Senate investigation of MF Global. Some believe he hasn’t so that he can protect Corzine.

http://financialservices.house.gov/news/documentsingle.aspx?DocumentID=311647
Subcommittee Investigation Reveals Decisions by Corzine Led to MF Global Bankruptcy and Missing Customer Funds

Washington, Nov 14, 2012 -

Decisions by Jon Corzine to chart a radically different course for MF Global and try to turn the 230-year-old commodities broker into a full-service investment bank were the cause of the firm’s bankruptcy and failure to protect customer funds, Republican members of a congressional subcommittee will report this week.
 
The House Financial Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, chaired by Rep. Randy Neugebauer, will release the full results of its year-long staff investigation into the collapse of MF Global on Thursday.
 
“Our investigation is essentially an autopsy of how MF Global came to its ultimate demise and what can be done to prevent similar customer losses in the future,” said Chairman Neugebauer.
 
Corzine, a former co-chairman of Goldman Sachs who later became a U.S. senator and governor of New Jersey, resigned from MF Global on November 4, 2011, almost 20 months after becoming the firm’s Chairman and CEO.  The brokerage had declared bankruptcy four days earlier and its collapse revealed a $1.6 billion shortfall in customer funds.
 
“Choices made by Jon Corzine during his tenure as chairman and CEO sealed MF Global’s fate,” Chairman Neugebauer stated.   “Farmers, ranchers and other customers may never get back over $1 billion of their money as a result of his decisions. Corzine dramatically changed MF Global’s business model without fully understanding the risks associated with such a radical transformation.”
 
The Subcommittee’s staff investigation of MF Global involved three hearings, more than 50 witness interviews, and the review of more than 243,000 documents obtained from MF Global, its former employees, federal regulators and other sources.
 
“By expanding MF Global into new business lines without first returning its core commodities business to profitability, Corzine ensured that the company would face enormous resource demands and exposed it to new risks that it was ill-equipped to handle,” the subcommittee report states.
 
In order to generate the revenue needed to fund MF Global’s transformation, Corzine invested heavily in the sovereign debt of struggling European countries.  These investments, which carried enormous default and liquidity risks, were a “prime focus” of Corzine’s attention and he failed to develop a corporate strategy for managing the risks, the subcommittee majority staff found.

DomRep, US agents seize 900 kilos of cocaine
 Monday, January 14, 2013 | 7:47 PM

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) — US and Dominican Republic authorities have seized about 900 kilograms (1,984 pounds) of cocaine thrown off a speedboat.
 
The Caribbean country's National Drug Control Agency says the boat was heading toward a bay west of the capital Sunday when it was detected by the US Drug Enforcement Administration.
 
The DEA reported the suspicious vessel, and three Dominican Republic aircraft and four military boats began pursuing the speedboat. The Dominican Republic anti-drug agency says the traffickers threw bales of cocaine into the sea in international waters during the chase and escaped.
 
Members of the US Coast Guard recovered the drugs and sent them to the US island of Puerto Rico.
 
Earlier this month, Dominican Republic authorities confiscated a cocaine load of 1,870 kilograms (4,122 pounds) from an abandoned boat in the same bay.

Uncle Sam is a dope smuggler

CASEPOINT: U.S. federal agents allegedly allowed the Sinaloa drug cartel to traffic several tons of cocaine into the United States in exchange for information about rival cartels, according to court documents filed in a U.S. federal court.

The allegations are part of the defense of Vicente Zambada-Niebla, who was extradited to the United States to face drug-trafficking charges in Chicago. He is also a top lieutenant of drug kingpin Joaquin "Chapo" Guzman and the son of Ismael "Mayo" Zambada-Garcia, believed to be the brains behind the Sinaloa cartel.

Who's the biggest smuggler in the Carrib ? Why it's Uncle Sammy!

Documents: Feds allegedly allowed Sinaloa cartel to move cocaine into U.S. for information

U.S. federal agents allegedly allowed the Sinaloa drug cartel to traffic several tons of cocaine into the United States in exchange for information about rival cartels, according to court documents filed in a U.S. federal court.

The allegations are part of the defense of Vicente Zambada-Niebla, who was extradited to the United States to face drug-trafficking charges in Chicago. He is also a top lieutenant of drug kingpin Joaquin "Chapo" Guzman and the son of Ismael "Mayo" Zambada-Garcia, believed to be the brains behind the Sinaloa cartel.

The case could prove to be a bombshell on par with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' "Operation Fast and Furious," except that instead of U.S. guns being allowed to walk across the border, the Sinaloa cartel was allowed to bring drugs into the United States. Zambada-Niebla claims he was permitted to smuggle drugs from 2004 until his arrest in 2009.

Randall Samborn, assistant U.S. attorney and spokesman for the Justice Department in Chicago, declined comment.

The court in Chicago had a status hearing on Wednesday and ordered the government to respond to allegations in Zambada-Niebla's motion by Sept. 11.

According to the court documents, Mexican lawyer Humberto Loya-Castro, another high-level Sinaloa cartel leader, had his 1995 U.S. drug-trafficking case dismissed in 2008 after serving as an informant for 10 years for the U.S. government.

Guzman and the Zambadas allegedly provided agents of the Drug Enforcement Administration, FBI and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement with information about other Mexican drug traffickers through Loya-Castro.

"Loya himself continued his drug trafficking activities with the knowledge of the United States government without being arrested or prosecuted," the court documents state.

Zambada-Niebla met voluntarily with U.S. federal agents on March 17, 2009, at the Sheraton Hotel in Mexico City, which is near the U.S. Embassy, "for the purpose of his continuing to provide information to the DEA and the U.S. government personally, rather than through Loya," court records allege.

"DEA agents (then) told Loya-Castro to tell Mr. Zambada-Niebla that they wanted to continue the same arrangements with him as they had with Mr. Loya-Castro."

Five hours after the meeting, Mexican authorities arrested Zambada-Niebla and extradited him later to the United States. His father and Guzman are fugitives.

The court documents also allege that the U.S. government is using a "divide and conquer" strategy, "using one drug organization to help against others."

Zambada-Niebla's motion seeks U.S. government records about the 2003 Juárez case involving an informant who participated in several homicides for the Carrillo-Fuentes drug cartel, while under ICE's supervision.

He also requested records about the ATF's "Operation Fast and Furious," which permitted weapons purchased illegally in the United States to be smuggled into Mexico, sometimes by paid U.S. informants and cartel leaders.

"It is estimated that approximately 3,000 people were killed in Mexico as a result of 'Operation Fast and Furious,' including law enforcement officers in the state of Sinaloa, Mexico, the headquarters of the Sinaloa cartel," the court documents allege. "The Department of Justice's leadership apparently saw this as an ingenious way of combating drug cartel activities."

Svitlana Buchyk: Mystery Woman in Menendez HookerGate Scandal
Posted on | February 4, 2013

Matthew Boyle of Breitbart.com just published a photo of a woman who reportedly “worked” for Dr. Salomon Melgen, the Palm Beach opthamologist at the center of the scandal surrounding embattled Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.). Melgen’s office was raided by the FBI last week, amid accusations that Menendez attended “wild sex parties” with prostitutes during trips to the Dominican Republic provided by Melgen.

The Russian-born woman, Svitlana Buchyk, figures prominently in the prostitution accusations against the scandal-plagued Menendez, who is in line to become chairman of the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee.

Huge drug ring shipping tons of cocaine from Casa de Campo - Bought from Cali Cartel

DominicanToday.com - The National Drugs Control Agency (DNCD) yesterday busted an international drug trafficking ring based in the country’s icon resort Casa de Campo, La Romana (east), seized 122 kilos of cocaine on a boat headed to Puerto Rico.
 
It arrested 29 people, among them five Puerto Ricans and 17 Russians, the latter the crew of a ship where the drug would’ve been shipped and one Dominican and one Colombian.

What I find interesting is the Russian connection to the drug traffiking . Here we have a Russian party girl with Melgen who makes trips between DR and Peurto Rico...  Also the Caso de Campo connection with the russians

Mexican Cartels, Russian Mob Operating in D.R., Gov't Says
 Published July 17, 2012

The rise in drug consumption and trafficking in the Dominican Republic in recent years is due to the country's geographical location, the penetration of broad swaths of society by the illegal drug trade and the operations of Mexican drug cartels and the Russian mob, an adviser to the government on anti-drug policy, Marino Castillo, said.
 
"We have the entry of the worst traditional organized crime groups, such as the Russians, and agressive cartels, like Mexico's Sinaloa and Los Zetas, (into the country)," Castillo said in a statement.
 
Nearly 300,000 young people are now addicted to drugs in the Dominican Republic as a result of the arrival in the country of international drug trafficking organizations, Castillo said.
 
The illegal drug trade has made progress in the country due to its infiltration of the armed forces, police, political parties, business, banking and the real estate industry, Castillo said.

   THE U.S.-CARIBBEAN SHARED SECURITY PARTNERSHIP: RESPONDING TO THE
          GROWTH OF TRAFFICKING AND NARCOTICS IN THE CARIBBEAN

DECEMBER 15, 2011

...

Mr. Benson. We have seen the trafficking organizations shift. We have seen them use air. We have addressed that
threat. Then we see go-fast boat activity. We have seen as well innovative approaches such as semisubmersible submarines.
 
   Senator Rubio. I guess my point is they are not using Jacksonville, FL, or other places, nor do I want them to, by
the way. But my point is that they are not using these places for a reason. Is there some specific vulnerability in Puerto
Rico's capabilities that they are exploiting? And at the end of the day, is that a resource problem that needs to be addressed?
Do they just not have good resources on the island to deal with some of these law enforcement----

    Mr. Benson. I mean, I could get back to you with a number on the staffing level of the Puerto Rican state police.

    Senator Rubio. Yes, please.
    Mr. Benson. Our staffing has been constant over the last several years. So that really has not--we have kept our full
complement of resources throughout the Caribbean.

    Senator Rubio. I guess the last point I would make is if this criminal activity were happening in Jacksonville people
would be screaming about it right now. I just want to make sure from not just the administration but from the congressional
perspective that we are paying just as much attention to it because Puerto Rico is a domestic responsibility of ours. It is
not another country. And so I want to make sure that we are giving it the attention it deserves both resourcewise and
publicly. So I look forward to exploring with your office what we can do on our end on the congressional level to ensure that
we are providing them the resources they need to address this problem.
    Thank you.


    Senator Menendez. Thank you, Senator Rubio.
    I have another round of questions here.
   I am particularly concerned within the context of the Caribbean about the Dominican Republic, and I would like to ask
Mr. Benson to help us understand what is happening. I am particularly concerned about the substantial increase in
narcotics consumption and trafficking in the DR, as well as the presence of international crime syndicates reportedly,
including Mexican and Colombian cartels, as well as mafia-affiliated entities from Venezuela, Russia, and even Albania.


In just the last few weeks, there have been reports from France and Puerto Rico documenting significant finds of narcotics
coming from the DR.


    Can you comment for the committee on the growth in the narcotics trade in the DR, how it is entering and leaving the
country, what effect corruption has on our ability to address this growing problem and reform the police? So let us start
with an oversight on the Dominican Republic.

    Mr. Benson. Senator, the Dominican Republic, as we look at it from a targeting point of view, plays a major role as a
transshipment point for those drug trafficking organizations.
We see loads of cocaine and heroin moving up into the Dominican Republic. We saw utilization of aircraft. We see go-fast boat
activity bringing loads of cocaine. We see containerized cargo moving up into the DR. It is still probably the most
significant transit point for criminal organizations to take those loads of cocaine and then we see it move from that point
to the United States. We see also significant loads of cocaine leave the Dominican Republic and also then move to Europe as
well
. So it is a critical spot for us to work with our counterparts in the Dominican Republic from a targeting
strategy point of view, and we do that every day.
    There are issues of corruption in the Dominican Republic, and then there is also great partnerships and counterparts that
we work with every day to get the job done.
    Our targeting strategy there is effective. One thing we are trying to do is build throughout the Caribbean additional
information and intelligence exchange with all of the nations there in Caribbean to build that more robust targeting
approach, and that is how we see us going forward in the future from DEA looking at the Dominican Republic, Haiti as well, with
the overall goal of dismantling those criminal organizations.
  
  Senator Menendez. When you and I spoke--and you mentioned this in your response to Senator Rubio's previous question--you
talked about submersibles. Could you expound upon that? It seems to be a relatively new but growing mechanism that they
are using to try to ship drugs to the United States.

    Mr. Benson. We clearly see drug trafficking organizations changing their tactics in response to the successful operations
that we have. So they have, over the period of the last few years, begun to utilize semisubmersible submarines, fully
submersible submarines as well, to transport larger quantities of cocaine being constructed in South America and then being
utilized to move narcotics up into Central America and Mexico.

    Senator Menendez. Now, I read just a few days ago the statements of one of the Presidential candidates in the
Dominican Republic who stated, ``We are at the risk of converting ourselves into a narcostate,'' and then went on to
cite a series of cases which are pretty alarming if they, in fact, are true, and maybe, Ambassador Brownfield, you can help
us with this as well as Mr. Benson. He cites the cases of former army captain, Quirino Ernesto Paulino Castillo, who
operated within the military structure, recalling that the navy had guided and transported drug shipments instead of protecting
the marine frontier.
    He also spoke about someone--and maybe, Mr. Benson, you could help us with this, as well as Ambassador Brownfield--Jose
David Figueroa Agosto having an ID card from DNA, which is Dominican National Intelligence, and was supposedly guarded by
police colonels, as well as having official license plates. Those are just some of a series of examples that have existed.

Now that the real story is about drugs - How about the Mexican drug cartel money laundering of HSBC (allowed under Goverment cover)?

Sen. Menendez Responds (Sort Of) to HSBC Dirty Dollars Inquiry (Commentary)
...
Media scrutiny of the HSBC money-laundering scandal has died down, but I am not letting  Sen. Robert Menendez (D) -- who represents me here in New Jersey -- nor any other congressional recipients of the disgraced bank's political action committee's generosity off the hook.
 
Despite calling -- as a journalist -- the leadership of the House Financial Services and the Senate Banking committees, until today only one member responded.  And the spokesman for that one leader (one of the few who has not gotten or taken a penny from the HSBC PAC in fifteen years)  -- declined comment.The rest have remained steadfastly silent.
 
Today, however, Sen. Menendez had this to say in response to my questions, "In light of HSBC's dealing with Mexican drug lords and suspected Iranian terrorist supporters, what do you plan to do with the bank PAC donations you have received over the years?  Will you reject future offers?"

HSBC to pay $1.9B to settle money-laundering probe

By Pete Yost, Associated Press updated 02:07 AM EST, Tue December 11, 2012

WASHINGTON (AP) — HSBC, the British banking giant, said Tuesday it will pay $1.9 billion to settle a money-laundering probe by federal and state authorities in the United States
...
A U.S. law enforcement official said Monday that HSBC will pay $1.25 billion in forfeiture and pay $655 million in civil penalties. The $1.25 billion figure is the largest forfeiture ever in a case involving a bank. Under what is known as a deferred prosecution agreement, the financial institution will be accused of violating the Bank Secrecy Act and the Trading With the Enemy Act

ICE reportedly arrested illegal immigrant sex offender interning for Menendez
 Published December 12, 2012

WASHINGTON –  Sen. Robert Menendez had an unpaid intern working in his New Jersey office who was an illegal immigrant and a registered sex offender and now is under arrest by immigration authorities, The Associated Press has learned. The Homeland Security Department instructed federal agents not to arrest him until after the Nov. 6 Election Day, a U.S. official involved in the case told the AP

Luis Abrahan Sanchez Zavaleta, an 18-year-old immigrant from Peru, was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in front of his home in New Jersey on Dec. 6, two federal officials said. Sanchez, who entered the country on a now-expired visitor visa from Peru, is facing deportation and remains in custody. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss details of Sanchez's immigration case.

...

The prosecutor's office in Hudson County, New Jersey, said Sanchez was found to have violated the law in 2010 and subsequently required to register as a sex offender. The exact charge was unclear because Sanchez was prosecuted as a juvenile and those court records are not publicly accessible. The prosecutor's office confirmed to AP that Sanchez registered as a sex offender, although his name does not appear on the public registry. The acting county prosecutor, Gaetano Gregory, is a Republican.
 
Authorities in Hudson County notified ICE agents in early October that they suspected Sanchez was an illegal immigrant who was a registered sex offender and who may be eligible to be deported. ICE agents in New Jersey notified superiors at the Homeland Security Department because they considered it a potentially high profile arrest, and DHS instructed them not to arrest Sanchez until after the November election, one U.S. official told the AP. ICE officials complained that the delay was inappropriate, but DHS directed them several times not to act, the official said.

The Manuel Noriega Connection to the Family Behind the Melgen-Menendez Dominican Port Security Deal
by Michael Patrick Leahy26 Feb 2013

When Belinda Galvan Beauchamp, widow of Juan Rene Beauchamp, the former head of the Dominican Armed Forces assassinated in 2000, signed the now infamous and controversial "Melgen-Menendez" Dominican port security deal in 2002 on behalf of ICSSI, her newly formed company with few assets and no port security experience, Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega had been in an American prison for a decade.

 But the Beauchamp family had deep ties to Noriega that extended back to the 1960s and 1970s, when both Noriega and Beauchamp were ambitious junior military officers in their respective countries. According to a December 27, 2000 report in EFE News Services, "Dominican Gen. Juan Rene Beauchamp Javier, the former head of the Dominican armed forces gunned down Tuesday by unknown assassins, was a close friend of former Panamanian strongman Manuel Antonio Noriega and had served as ambassador to Argentina."
 
Beauchamp's son, Jean Rene Beauchamp, married Noriega's daughter, Sandra Noriega, in 1987, at the height of Noriega's six year reign as Panama's military dictator. The two subsequently divorced. It is not clear if the divorce took place before or after the Beachamp family's newly formed ICSSI company secured the Dominican port security deal in 2002.
 
When Noriega was deposed during the American invasion of Panama in 1989, his wife and two of his sons fled to the Dominican Republic, where they lived with General Beauchamp and his family for a period of time. Noriega's daughter Sandra was apparently already living in the Dominican with her husband, Beauchamp's son.
...
In August, 2011, Dr. Salomon Melgen purchased a controlling interest from the Beauchamp family in ICSSI, and with that purchase came the rights to the disputed 2002 port security contract with the Dominican government.

Where did Soloman Melgen get his money - From the MIC Military Industrial Complex:

http://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/news/eye-doctor-salomon-melgen-lost-68-million-in-inves/nWK6B/


Melgen’s resume says he was a co-founder of Seisint, a data company that was purchased by LexisNexis for $775 million in 2004.

Seisint created a data-mining tool that it said could help law enforcement track down terrorists [covert military ops] .

“Dr. Melgen was a seed investor in a high-tech company that did extremely well. He made a great deal of money in that particular investment,” said Scarola. “He did not make those kinds of dollars practicing medicine, although he has a very successful practice.”

Melgen also has an ownership stake in ICSSI, a company that had a long-dormant contract with the Dominican Republic to provide port security at an estimated value of $500 million. Menendez spoke to State Department officials about the contract and at a hearing last year, urged State and Commerce Department officials to press the Dominican government to revive that contract.

In 1994, Reed Elsevier acquired the LexisNexis™ service. Begun in Dayton as a contractor to the US Air Force in 1966, its electronic data-search system became the first to retrieve full-text documents. In 1973, the company introduced a legal-research system that revolutionized the way in which legal research and analysis was conducted. The technology propelled the legal profession into a new era.

In 1979, a companion news and business-information service was introduced under the Nexis banner. Michie™, founded in the late 1800s and the sole provider of statutes for 35 U.S. states and territories, joined the fold of LexisNexis in 1987.

With the advent of the World Wide Web, LexisNexis moved its information products and services to the new distribution channel, eliminating the need for proprietary software or extensive training. In September 1997, LexisNexis debuted the first Web-based service for U.S. legal professionals, the precursor to LexisNexis™ at www.lexis.com.

In 2002, LexisNexis Butterworths Canada and Quicklaw Inc., Canada’s leading online legal research service, agreed to merge. Late in the year, they were formally joined to become LexisNexis Canada, a business unit of North American Legal Markets.

The history of LexisNexis Group represents one of converging companies that today operate within a unified global organization. First to join Reed Elsevier via Reed in 1970 was the legal publishing Butterworths Group, founded in 1818 in the UK. By the 1930s, Butterworths had expanded to other common-law countries, with operations in India, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. In 1990 Martindale-Hubbell, became part of Reed Elsevier bringing with it a history dating back to the first Martindale law directory published in 1868.

Now a truly international player with established and expanding operations in North America, Europe, South Africa and Asia Pacific, Reed Elsevier in 1998 acquired respected U.S. legal publisher Matthew Bender (founded in 1887) and the remaining interest it did not own in leading citator Shepard’s Company (founded in 1873). The scene was set for the globalization of the LexisNexis Group that, for the first time in October 2000, united the different parts of Reed Elsevier’s legal-publishing activities. In 2002, the company acquired legal online publishers Quicklaw Inc. of Canada and MBO Verlag GmbH of Germany

With 13,000 employees worldwide, LexisNexis is a global company with sales representatives in all major U.S. cities as well as in:

Toronto,
London,
Paris,
Frankfurt,
Milan,
Vienna,
Warsaw,
Budapest,
Prague,
Tokyo,

Escort says Menendez prostitution claims were made up
 By Carol D. Leonnig and Ernesto Londoño, Updated: Monday, March 4, 1:57 PM
 Washington Post
 
An escort who appeared on a video claiming Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) paid her for sex has told Dominican Republic police that she was instead paid to make up the claims in a tape recording and has never met or seen the senator before, according to court documents and two people briefed on her claim.
 
The woman identified a lawyer who approached her and a friend to make the videotape, according to affidavits obtained by the Post. That man has in turn identified another lawyer who gave him a script for the tape and paid him to find women to fabricate the claims, the affidavits say

Daily Caller’s Menendez Hooker: I Can’t Believe We Made Up The Whole Thing
 by Rebecca Schoenkopf
 
Next-gen rightwing journamalism Great White Hope Matthew Boyle was pretty proud when the FBI did some boring raid on some shady eye doctor allegedly organizing underage sex-hookers for New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez. Boyle had been beating his horse for months over it, while no one respectable would touch it. (Your Wonkette, along with the rest of the civilized universe, does not consider itself “respectable.”)

But now it is time for Boyle to figure out what his clever alibi will be as to why the woman who identified herself to Boyle’s readers as New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez’s prostitute now says she was paid money by some shady lawyer guy to read from a script when she said she did sex on New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez for money.

Did Boyle get Burketted? Boyle probably did not get Burketted. (This is where Karl Rove false-flags you with memos that are identical to the memos the Army secretary remembers typing up, but MOAR PIXELZ!) At least, it seems improbable that Boyle got Burketted, since he was there for the videotaped “interview” with the lady, which he conducted himself, and in which the lady says she was reading from a script, and ALSO which does not seem to be in the story trumpeting the interview along with “VIDEO” any longer.

...
Since we are more intellectually honest than anyone to ever work at either the Daily Caller (Boyle’s old home) or Ghost Andrew Breitbart’s Internet Brothel, where he now plies his trade, we will point out that just because this lady says she was paid to give her fake testimony about the bonking of the senator does not mean that all the other ladies who allegedly orgied the senator are equally made up.
...
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5
