    WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Bob Menendez has been charged with using his office to improperly benefit a Florida eye doctor and political donor.

    A federal grand jury on Wednesday indicted the New Jersey Democrat on charges including conspiracy to commit bribery and wire fraud.

    Prosecutors had been investigating whether Menendez improperly advocated for the business interests of Dr. Salomon Melgen, including by intervening on the doctor's behalf in a medical billing dispute.

    Menendez has acknowledged that he flew on Melgen's private plane to the Dominican Republic and failed at first to properly pay for the trips. He later made reimbursements.

    Menendez, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has previously said he's done nothing wrong and that he and Melgen have been close friends for a long time.

    Whoever said that BHO has no problem throwing fellow Democrats under the bus when they disagreed with him sure does look correct. I thought only Republicans were his "enemies." Menendiz has already paid for the trip on his friend's plane, so that's history. As far as using his office to benefit large donors, would awarding Ambassadorships to large donors fall under the same umbrella, because that happens a lot in DC! :

    How can Obama be accused of throwing anyone under a bus? I mean he can't do that and drive the bus at the same time....

    and there is the little matter of the firm who drafted the Obamacare site.......no bid contract, right up there with this guy,

    very few people have understood the gravitas of that deal. The company was under investigation by the RCMP at the time when they contracted them to build the interface. They had run up a $2 billion bill on a $1 million contract and it still wasn't working. It has since been scrapped, we may as well have paved the streets with the money.

    and they "offered" a no bid open ended contract.

    Maybe this thread should be moved to the Conspiracy Theories forum

    Strange how this has been known for years, yet the charges come out only after menendez speaks out against obama's foreign policy......
