Obama’s DOJ Targets Latino Senator Menendez but let’s White Guy-Harry Reid Get Away with Much Worse

by Samuel Gonzalez | April 1, 2015 8:21 pm

Sen. Harry Reid, the man who lied on the Senate floor about Mitt Romney not paying taxes, has been involved in a plethora of unethical behavior [1]throughout his career that would send regular people to jail for a hundred years or more.

Yet, the Obama regime chooses to go after the hardworking Latino senator from New Jersey because Robert Menendez[2] had the nerve to disagree with Obama on Cuban policy and the Iran nuclear talks. This is political payback pure and simple.

And the White senator gets away with his crimes!

NY Times[3] reports Senator Robert Menendez[4] of New Jersey was indicted on bribery charges on Wednesday in what prosecutors said was a scheme to trade political favors for luxury vacations, golf outings and expensive flights.

The indictment, the first federal bribery charges against a sitting senator in a generation, puts in jeopardy Mr. Menendez’s political future and carries a possible sentence of 15 years in prison for each of the eight counts of bribery.

Mr. Menendez, a Democrat, has denied wrongdoing and vowed to fight the charges. “This is not how my career is going to end,” he said during a news conference in Newark on Wednesday evening.

The federal investigation into Mr. Menendez was well known and charges had been expected[7]. But the accusations in the 65-page indictment[8] are much broader and more severe than had been publicly known.

The charges revolve around Mr. Menendez’s relationship[9] with Dr. Salomon E. Melgen, a wealthy Florida eye surgeon and political benefactor. Dr. Melgen resisted entreaties by the Justice Department to testify against Mr. Menendez and was ultimately charged alongside him.
