RUSH: Bob Menendez, the senator from New Jersey, finds himself embroiled in a bit of a sex scandal, going down to the Dominican Republic with a donor from here in South Florida on a donor's plane, which happens to be a Challenger 600. And Bob Menendez finally speaking about this said that (paraphrasing), "Well, you know, yeah, yeah, I forgot to reimburse my donor for the flights. The reimbursement fell through the cracks." He actually said that.
By the way, all of this happened, all of this became known before the election, and it didn't matter. And, you know, the media, the Drive-Bys and so forth, they're not really interested in this, and they're being driven to the Menendez story by Menendez and his staff, and they're covering the story the way Menendez wants. The Menendez staff is directing CNN to a Univision story where all these girls down there in the Dominican are virgins, Menendez couldn'ta done anything.
Then you have other media people saying, "You know what, it's a Democrat. There's no such thing as a sex scandal with a Democrat." (laughing) The Democrats don't make noise about family values and morality and all that. A Democrat having sex with a 16 year, it's no big deal. It's been done before. A 17-year-old, no big deal, 18, doesn't matter, been there, done that.
Now, if Menendez were out there talking about family values, "Yeah, yeah, we'd be on this case like white on rice," as Muhammad Ali once said. But a Democrat, it's not possible for a Democrat to be involved in a sex scandal because a Democrat's life is a sex scandal, it isn't news. And that's...
What's that? Well, I don't know about the e-mail from the girl. I haven't really been studying the story for the same reason the media isn't covering it. It's a Democrat and everything they do is a sex scandal so it really isn't big news.
I'm sorry, folks, I probably shouldn't say this. The guy in the GoDaddy commercial kissing Bar Refaeli, may as well be Menendez to me. That's the thing that gets me. I look at this and I say, "Really? Really?" They're asking us to believe a lot here. Anyway, Senator Menendez says that the reimbursement for the flights down to Casa de Campo fell through the cracks. He said it, not me. Just passing it on.
