    Prostitutes paid by conservative site to lie about tryst with Sen Menendez

    Amazing.

    Official Seeks Mystery Man Linked To 'Smear' of Senator Bob Menendez

    A prosecutor in the Dominican Republic is seeking to identify the mystery man called "Carlos" who, allegedly in league with Republican operatives in the U.S., helped set up television interviews with three young women who now say they were paid to lie about having sex with Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

    Jose Polanco, the public prosecutor in the city of La Romano, said the lawyer for the three women testified Thursday that the mystery man "offered $5,000" to find three women who would agree to go along with the scheme.

    The lawyer, Melanio Figueroa, has given contradictory public statements about the incident over the last several weeks.

    According to the prosecutor, Figueroa testified that the mystery man was named "Carlos" and alleged the man was connected with or worked for a U.S.-based conservative news website, The Daily Caller, although he offered no evidence to back up the claim.

    The Daily Caller first published the allegations against Menendez a few days before voters cast ballots in the New Jersey senate seat race last year, based on interview with two of the prostitutes.

    A spokesperson for The Daily Caller, Nicole Roeberg, denied the allegation that it paid Carlos or had any connection to him. "Never worked for us, never was hired by us, was not a source that connected us to anyone in the Dominican Republic," Roeberg said in a statement to ABC News.

    Someone named "Carlos" appears briefly in video recorded by ABC News last October during interviews with the same women, as he attempts to correct a technical problem with the video connection.

    ABC News did not report on the women's allegations at the time because of doubts about their identity and veracity, later proven to be well-founded.

    When asked about "Carlos" during the interviews, one of the women said, "He says he works for a newspaper or something like that."

    At the time, "Carlos" was described to ABC News by the lawyer Figueroa, as an associate who was in charge of organizing the interviews via a Skype hook-up. There was no mention made of any connection between "Carlos" and The Daily Caller.

    The Skype address used by ABC News to make contact in the Dominican Republic included the names Carlos and Martinez. A message sent by ABC News Thursday to the same Skype address seeking comment has not been returned.

    A Republican operative who insisted on anonymity made the introduction between ABC News and Figueroa and "Carlos."

    Senator Menendez has denounced the prostitution allegations as part of a "smear campaign" designed to falsely implicate him in a sex scandal in the weeks before last year's election.

    He has called for a full investigation by U.S. authorities but has said he will not appear in person in the Dominican Republic to answer questions of prosecutors there.

    It's sad that its far easier to spread a lie then a truth. But that is the state of our diseased, gossip style media. Much like the Iraq has WMDs or the 9-11 Iraq fairy tales, there will be a segment of our population that will still believe this smear.

    Already been posted in the Menendez thread. Really proves nothing b.c they hookers could have been paid off...again.

    He probably won't be charged for the girls but through the course of the investigation the Feds have found out other details about Menendez that still may sink him. He is currently under a grand jury investigation for some of his business dealings and campaign contributions.

    I disagree

    This article brings forth anonymous accusations against the Daily caller. I wonder how Tucker Carlson likes the shoe being on the receiving end?

    It does also proves that none of these “witnesses” are worth a darn.

    So you're saying the people who framed Menendez are now being paid by the framee to frame the framers about being framed in the frame job? Hmmmm.... Interesting.

    You don't know Washington too well. Or Dominican hookers.

    The hookers are now an interesting side story. Truth be told, they were never a viable witness either way. Nobody is going to believe anything a hooker has to say. Personally, I don't care if someone is banging hookers, I just hope that they weren't underage. But if you know anything about the DR, it is a hot spot for "sex tourism "which unfortunately is primarily for underage women.

    But the bigger story is that he has other problems now. They are investigating him for what essentially is taking bribes in the form of campaign contributions.

    An once again the business of the country is put off for another witch hunt. So sick of both the left and the right and all the BS that makes our system look like some circus. Not what our founding fathers had in mind folks.

    Someone believed those hookers. The daily caller printed it and someone posted on this site. To me the original charge seemed fishy. “Menendez hired underage prostitutes” as if he would have carded them. Why not go for broke... “Menendez hired underage Kenyan Muslim prostitutes”?

    As for the Campaign contributions as bribes…ha-ha-ha-ha if that is the case all 535 members of congress will be indicted

    What does a Domican care about a US Senator anyway, or is it another distraction!
