Choke it Down for Bob
The Newark Star Ledger’s endorsement of New Jersey Democrat Robert Menendez for the U.S. Senate was less than rousing.
The editorial was titled: Choke it Down and Vote for Menendez.
Here’s how the paper described its man:
Before he was caught in 2015, Sen. Robert Menendez broke Senate rules by routinely accepting expensive gifts, including private jets to luxury resorts abroad. He kept those gifts secret, breaking another rule. He then used his office to promote the personal and business interests of the man who paid the bills. All that was the unanimous conclusion of the Senate ethics committee, including all its Democrats.
