BREAKING: Jury Convicts Menendez’s Friend and Donor, Dr. Melgen

More ominous news for Bob Menendez, Save Jerseyans.

On Friday, Dr. Salomon Melgen, accused of improperly billing the U.S. government for $100+ million in medical insurance payments, was convicted by a federal jury.

Senator Menendez, a long time friend (and recipient of donations) from the Florida doctor, is still under indictment for allegedly using his office to aid Melgen in exchange for hundreds of thousands of dollars in gifts.

Menendez’s trial is scheduled for fall 2017; the Senator’s lawyers attempted to have his bribery charges tossed but were turned back when the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear his petition.
