Daily Caller Hooker Video: Bob Menendez Denies Prostitution Scandal

by at . Comments

U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) has denied sleeping with two prostitutes in the Dominican Republic after a video featuring their accusations emerged on the Daily Caller.

Two women from the Caribbean nation told the conservative website that Menendez paid them for sex earlier this year after meeting at Casa de Campo, a resort.

They claimed Menendez agreed to pay them $500 for sex acts, but in the end received only $100. When shown a photo of Menendez, both recognized him.

The women spoke through a translator in the company of their attorney, Melanio Figueroa. Their identities remain obscured for fear of reprisals in the D.R.

The senator denies the allegations, according to the Daily Caller.

Neither knew the identity of their allegedly deceitful patron at the time. Both claimed to recognize him later as Sen. Menendez. “He called him[self] ‘Bob,’” said one.

One woman said Menendez wooed her with compliments like “beautiful” before they slept together. The other woman recounted being shafted ... regarding payment, that is.

“He lies,” she said of Menendez. “He says one thing and does another.”

According to the translator’s summary, Menendez “was nice at first, but then later he did not seem to care about her.”

Menendez, 58 and divorced, has represented New Jersey in the U.S. Senate since being appointed to fill a vacancy in 2005. He is up for re-election Tuesday.

Asked about the allegations, Menendez spokeswoman Tricia Enright refused to answer: “We’re not going to respond to a completely false accusation,” she wrote by email.
