The Wall Street Journal is out with a scathing editorial criticizing disgraced Senator Bob Menendez for his corruption and lies on the campaign trail.
With his approval ratings deep underwater and in the middle of a tough race, Menendez has resorted to spreading falsehoods about his opponent, Bob Hugin.
The WSJ Editorial Board writes:
“After narrowly dodging a corruption conviction, New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez faces a re-election dogfight against former Celgene CEO Bob Hugin. The Senator is now lying to voters about his opponent’s business record the way he dissembled about his political corruption.
“None of Celgene’s business practices are corrupt—unlike Mr. Menendez’s machinations to procure visas for his doctor friend Salomon Melgen’s girlfriends. The Senator also intervened for the doctor with the Department of Health and Human Services in a Medicare billing dispute that involved reused vials of a macular degeneration drug that put patients at risk of infection.
“Mr. Menendez escaped conviction thanks to the Supreme Court’s McDonnell ruling that made it harder for prosecutors to prove quid-pro-quo corruption. But the Senate Ethics Committee “severely” admonished him, and New Jersey voters now have an opportunity to oust a man who abused his power to help a campaign donor in favor of an entrepreneur who helped to save lives.”
