The plot thickens, Save Jerseyans.
Is the noose tightening, too?
Just under two weeks after Senator Bob Menendez (D-Ecuador, Dominican Republic) and Florida ophthalmologist Salomon Melgen were indicted on multiple criminal counts, the feds dropped a new 76-count indictment on Tuesday night accusing Melgen of perpetrating a massive Medicare fraud scheme.
This spells potentially SERIOUS trouble for Hudson Bob and the Democrat Party.
Remember: according to the allegations contained in the original indictment, Menendez employed his staff and Senator Harry Reid himself to help Melgen to beat a multi-million dollar fine immediately after Melgen facilitated a 6-figure donation to the Democrats’ Majority PAC. Around this time, Melgen also held the nation’s top Medicare billing doctor crown for having brought in more than $20 million in a single year.
