Menendez’s alleged Dominican prostitution spree coincided with crusade against prostitution in Cuba
Made popular 105 days ago in
Despite allegations that Democratic New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez had sex with underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic on several occasions in recent years, he has been a persistent critic of the Cuban regime for economic conditions that have led to widespread prostitution among young people.
“The average Cuban worker lives on an income of less than $1 a day,” Menendez said during a March 2, 2009 Senate floor speech, arguing that the communist Cuban dictatorship’s policies caused nationwide poverty.
“This poverty has an enormous cost,” the son of Cuban emigres to the U.S. explained. “The widespread desperation of families has forced far too many young girls and boys into becoming sex workers, even though defenders of the Revolution constantly cite the elimination of prostitution as one of its supposed accomplishments.”
“In fact,” Menendez noted. “A few years ago Cuba was listed by Voyeur Magazine as the sex tourism hot spot of the world. So much for that success of the revolution of eliminating prostitution.” (RELATED VIDEO: In Congress, Menendez made impassioned plea to end sex trafficking)
When he served in the House of Representatives, Menendez criticized fellow congressman — and now fellow senator — Jeff Flake, an Arizona Republican, for proposing to lift travel restrictions and allow Americans to visit Cuba.
Flake’s amendment, he said on Dec. 3, 2003, was a “failed policy when prostitution flourishes in Cuba so that foreign tourists can take advantage of Cuban women.”

Regardless of the efforts by the democRAT party leaders and their media allies in the liberal "mainstream" media will this scandal derail Menendez' political career?
