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.
SideBear: So the white-washing of Senator Menendez begins because he’s a Democrat and we all know what a fine moral character he is who takes free plane rides and sponsor’s a bill and intervened in matters affecting the financial interests of Florida ophthalmologist Salomon Melgen that would put millions of dollars in his pocket courtesy of the American People.
None of this matters to the Post because the pimp says so.
And the best that the Post can do is come up with an anonymous guy named “Carlos”.
It reminds me of that old movie when the husband caught in bed with a you know what and he said….”You going to believe me or your eyes?”
Tucker Carlson, who runs the Web site, said in a statement provided through his spokesman that the Daily Caller “never paid anyone, was never asked to pay anyone and of course never would pay anyone for this story.”
“It seems clear to me Figueroa is under pressure to change his story,” he said. “What I know for certain is this claim is a lie.”
