#1 Menendez complaining of head and chest pains; to enter Mayco Clinic Arneja Hospital soon. Could be Triple-J Syndrome. Recent memory loss and Johnson's Drip could indicate cranial-vericocele enlargement. A rubber gloved Jay Carney has signed the Menendez 12 month [or as needed] Medical leave of absence. Many in US Senate are shaking heads and deleting e-mails.

#2 Reid... the charismatic senator-for-life from Nevada, currently majority leader ...( do you mean the same Harry Reid who is reminiscent of Droopy the cartoon anthropomorphic dog with a droopy face who moved slowly and lethargically and spoke in a jowly monotone?)
Menendez ," I served in the Dominican Republic" probably will not be the head of Senate Foreign Relations Committee despite much experience in foreign relations.

#5 Prostitution in the Dominican Rep is legal and Menendez is divorced. Thus, a straight forward admission might not have sunk him if he had made it earlier.
However, if the prostitutes are underage, he is probably in violation of some American law also.

#6 There is an American law which says 18 anywhere in the world is jailbait. I think it was passed sometime back to deal with all the junkets to procure sex with the under-aged in Thailand.

#7 I found that what I said may not be completely accurate. I had heard on the TV that 18 was the U.S. age of legal consent anywhere in the world. Wiki source says the following: "If the adult travels to a different state or a different country to have sex with a minor, this is only a federal crime if the minor is under the age of 16. It may still be a local crime if the minor was under the age of consent of the state or nation where the sex happened but it is not a federal crime. The Protect Act of 2003 states age 18 is the age of consent in the U.S. Some States say 16 but this violates the Protect Act. Looks like it depends on whether or not the prostitutes were of legal age in Dom. Repub. so long as they are older than 16.
