…will inspire others to say “B,” in search of the same privileges.
Senator Robert Menendez (D, NJ) has been in ethical hot water for most of his time in public life. Perhaps, after so many close shaves, he thought himself invulnerable, but that might not prove to be the case this time around. The evidence of his corruption is varied and copious, and enfolds his wife and several associates in the same web:
Democratic New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez is being charged with bribery offenses in a federal indictment out of the Southern District of New York to be unsealed Friday, prosecutors announced.
“Today, I’m announcing that my office has obtained a three count indictment charging Senator Robert Menendez, his wife, Nadine Menendez, and three New Jersey businessmen, Wael Hana, Jose Uribe and Fred Daibes for bribery offenses,” U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said at a press conference late Friday morning.
NBC News 4 reported Monday that the FBI and IRS criminal investigators are attempting to determine if Menendez or his wife had taken up to $400,000 worth of gold bars from Fred Daibes, a New Jersey developer and former bank chairman, or his associates in a swap for Menendez reaching out to the Justice Department to aid the “admitted felon” accused of banking crimes.
The unsealed indictment alleges that from at least 2018 through 2022, Menendez and his wife, Nadine Menendez, “engaged in a corrupt relationship” with Daibes, Wael Hana and Jose Uribe.
Getting Menendez cut loose would open an escape hatch for all the others, which the Southern District of New York is anxious to avoid. However, for a United States Senator to go down hard at this time would endanger other high-ranking Democrats as well. No doubt the Usurper Regime is looking for a way out. Yet Menedez knows it would be chancy to wait upon the ingenuity and efficacy of the Biden White House.
So Menendez has decided to play the race card:

Now that black thugs and felons are getting wrist slaps, if anything, for major crimes, it’s time for a Latino to see if his race card will be accepted. It might work…but with the miasma of corruptions already swirling around the Democrats, and with Menendez’s record of barely eluding prison time in the past, the odds are difficult to compute.
Of one thing we can be sure: should Menendez resign or be removed from office, his replacement will be another Democrat. In New Jersey, that means that “the show will go on,” for corruption has been so institutionalized there as to be of higher stature than the law itself. All else remains, in an acronym beloved of military specification writers, TBD.
