Right-wing blogs now chasing Menendez down the hall, asking about hookers


Those right-wing blogs with their made-up accusations about Sen. Bob Menendez and prostitutes are really getting influential. They’ve managed to convince the FBI there might be something worth looking into, and now reporters are starting to take an interest.

Kind of surreal to hear @gingergibson yell “Did you sleep with prostitutes, Senator?” at Menendez while we practically ran down hall.

So NOW he wants personal “border” security! “@gingergibson: Reporters chased Menendez down the hall after his speech. He answered no Qs.”

I don’t blame the networks for holding off on the @senatormenendez story until they can figure out how to blame the Republicans.
