It is a scandal.

But I don't think those are tax payer dollars, we aren't paying for Dominican Port security. We do have influence over the Dominicans being able to export to the US, and if they don't meet our security standards they don't. The way I read it he was getting his benefactor cleared and the contract so he could make lots of money off of the Dominicans. Menendez used his influence to get him a 500 million dollar contract in the DR.

quote:

Two years ago, Dr. Melgen, despite an apparent lack of experience in border security issues, bought an ownership interest in a company that had a long-dormant contract with the Dominican Republic to provide port security. Mr. Menendez, who is chairman of the Senate subcommittee that holds sway over the Dominican Republic, subsequently urged officials in the State and Commerce Departments to intervene so the contract would be enforced, at an estimated value of $500 million.
Think the NYT dug this up, or someone is feeding it to 'em?

Democrats suck.

The hold their GOP counterparts to a much higher moral standard than they do themselves.

Reminds me a lot of Vitter

Anyone ever ask Vitter about the sweetheart deal he set up for his best friend Claude Kelly to get a $100 million contract for him and his Kremlin buddies?

Ever heard of that one?

No scandal. Dems have a plan to help with that expenditure. We need more revenue dammit.

Nope, why don't you start a thread and tell us about it.

Are you saying Menendez isn't a a sorry piece of shite because of Vitter?

Not a fan of Vitter, but no idea what connection you are trying to make here?

What does this have to do with the OP? You are the one bringing partisanship here, not the OP.

OK got it, you were sharing your stream of consciousness, I was thinking Vitter actually had something to do with Menendez or this thread?
