Crooked Democrat Senator Gets Away With It

Jurors in Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez’s federal corruption trial told the judge Monday morning that they are hopelessly deadlocked and won’t be able to reach a verdict on 12 charges, ranging from bribery to “public corruption.”

Judge William Walls has ordered the jurors — seven women and five men — to take the rest of Monday off to “clear their heads,” but wants them back at work on Tuesday to keep deliberating,CNN reports. He’s asked them to “forget” about the last week of deliberations and “start fresh” with an eye on delivering a verdict.

“You are starting fresh,” Walls said. “Forget about what happened last week. This is the jury.”

Although the case has received only minimal media attention, Menendez is the first sitting senator to face a corruption trial in decades. He stands accused of using his office to do favors for a Florida dentist, Dr. Salomon Melgen, regularly over the course of seven years, in return for million-dollar campaign donations. According to prosecutors, Menendez lobbied the State Department to provide visas for Melgen’s foreign girlfriends, and even tried to help Melgen avoid a Medicare fraud investigation.

Well this has all of the tell-tale traits of a bunch of money being exchanged between one of the Jurors and a delegate of the accused.
With his History of pretty blatant misdeeds I see little possibility of his innocence…but a hung jury will get the job done just fine….sick !
