Escort Says She Was Paid To Make Up Claims About Robert Menendez: Court Docs
The 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.
Any particular reason Menendez would be set up for a scandal, other than just being a Democrat?
I don't know for sure, R2, but he's a New Jersey Senator in a state with a Republican Governor (Chris Christie) which means that if he had to step down because of a scandal, Christie could appoint a Republican.
