U.S. Senator Bob Menendez and wife indicted on bribery charges

This is some serious Bond-villain action. He (allegedly) took bribes in gold bars!

I used to be thrilled when I found a quarter in a seat cushion at my grandpa’s house, but a court-authorized search of the Menendez house found “over $480,000 in cash — much of it stuffed into envelopes and hidden in clothing.”

Why couldn’t this guy be my grandpa? I could have bought a lot of baseball cards with a few hundred grand.

MOM: Hey, did you waste money on baseball cards again today?

ME: No, and I will never have to again. I bought TOPPS.

  1. This guy is a POS scumbag. The Dems should be kicking him to the curb as well. He’s running around complaining he’s the victim. He deserves to be in prison.

  2. Corruption is bipartisan ~ shocking! This actually helps all the Trump prosecution(s). ✔ And yes, Menendez is about as stupid as Trump.

    Just in time for his NJ senate primary …

    1. The difference is the Dems aren’t going to go to bat for this guy, nor will they try to deflect or look for a Repub to do a revenge investigation on.

      1. I think other Dem politicians will throw him to the wolves.

        Unfortunately, I can’t say the same about Jersey voters. He should’ve got tossed out in his last primary but they voted for him then and stuck with him in the next election.

  3. The weaponized Biden DOJ blah, blah, uh, blah. What do you mean he’s a Democrat and key Biden ally?
    I’m conflicted here. He’s always been a scuzzball; he’s also a key guy in helping Ukraine defend themselves while seriously damaging Emperor Xi’s northern wingman.

    1. Conflicted about what? He probably also goes to church on Sunday and receives communion !@#$%^& Prefer sleazeball over scuzzball …

      1. Jeez. Read the second sentence again and to the end this time. This whole thing is getting “A Small Country Far Away about Which We Know Little” feel to it. The Munich analogy is usually 180 off. It might not be here.

    2. Adam Schiff on military aid to Ukraine:

      – That military aid helps “to protect and advance American national security interests in the region and beyond.”

      – “The United States aids Ukraine and her people so that we can fight Russia over there so we don’t have to fight Russia here.”

      Schiff said this 2 years before Russia invaded the Ukraine. I’m not sure advancing American interests in the region and fighting the Russians there instead of here is helping Ukraine much.

        1. Hey, fwald, Stick cares so much about the Ukrainians that he would rather fight the Russians right here in the USA so the Ukrainians would not have to!

          (I was going to try to be funny by writing some over-the-top stuff about that idea, but as much as I tried, I could not come up with anything more absurd than what Stick wrote. His post is its own reductio ad absurdum. That’s the point people like him are at these days.)
