#3 "Big deal. He is a Democrat. Democrats do this all the time."
So'd my Republican Senator, David Vitter. I would much prefer politicians would honor the oaths they take (marriage vows, etc.), but it doesn't seem like many can or do; of course if I was his wife I might Bobbitt him for his behavior (is he married?)

#4 Sadly, Menendez is inside the "dead girl or live boy" window, and these girls are alive.

#6 Except its the whole set of politicians who've been pushing 'human trafficking' and its evils meme for a couple years now. When they're beating their chops its never about consenting adults, but exploitation. It's Big Willy signing into law the sexual harassment statutes that clearly say when a person in a superior position of authority gets 'Droit du seigneur' its by act an instance of sexual harassment. Of course, he is exempted cause he's a 'D'. One set of rules for me, another set of rules for thee.

#11 Re:Child trafficing, child abuse, and drugs can be multifaceted.
Yep, the hookers are the least of the concerns when using a private plane to the Caribbean, especially when there is the other posting today of Hezzies using the drug routes to infiltrate the US. The Dominican Republic is on the radar because of cartel level trafficking to the Eastern US via the Caribbean and S Florida. Maybe Menendez has other bad habits?
Cocaine poses a significant drug threat to Puerto Rico and the USVI. The drug is readily available and commonly abused and its distribution and abuse often are associated with violent crime. According to law enforcement and health officials, powdered cocaine and crack cocaine commonly are abused in Puerto Rico, while crack cocaine abuse is more prevalent than powdered cocaine abuse in the USVI. Puerto Rico and the USVI are commonly used as cocaine transshipment locations; most of the cocaine smuggled to the islands from South America is transshipped to other markets, primarily on the U.S. mainland. Cocaine is transported into and through Puerto Rico and the USVI primarily by maritime vessels and also by air conveyances. Dominican DTOs and criminal groups are the primary transporters of cocaine into and through Puerto Rico and the USVI; however, Colombian DTOs and Puerto Rican criminal groups also transport cocaine into and through the islands. Colombian, Dominican, and Puerto Rican criminal groups are the principal wholesale-level distributors of cocaine in Puerto Rico and the USVI. These criminal groups supply the drug principally to other Puerto Rican and Dominican criminal groups and local independent dealers and USVI criminal groups for retail sale.
