Menendez speaks out strongly against claims

Sen. Robert Menendez has labeled as false a number of claims by unidentified accusers who, he says, are “trying to defame” him with accusations that he improperly used his office by accepting unreported plane flights, advocating on Capitol Hill on behalf of a business and intervening in a Medicare billing inquiry.

“It’s the last time I am going to say this - the last time. Anonymous people without faces, without names can make accusations and the press can ask these questions,” the New Jersey Democrat told the television network Univision.

“Those are false accusations, and they are trying to defame me, and are completely, not only absurd, but completely false.”

“Nobody has bought me,” he said. “No one. Ever. In the 20 years I've been in Congress, never has it been suggested that that could even be possible. Never in 40 years of public life. So I'm not going to reach this moment in my life to make that a possibility.”

1. Emphatic denials from politicians are par for the course, regardless of their level of guilt.

I guess we'll wait and see.
