What? So you mean to say the tips given by an anonymous tipster may not be on the up and up?

No really, look how shocked I am.

What's the deal with underage Dominican boys? Are the laws nonexistent down there or is there something in the water that just makes their boys irresistible?

Lax laws and no way to enforce them are two things that countries known for sex tourism and human trafficking have in common.

I must say, I'm impressed by how little evidence you apparently need to fire up conservatives and start congressional ethics investigations.

Are you asking for yourself? The story on Menendez is about females.

FTA: Media attempts to track down the several women referred to in Williams' emails (as well as one woman Williams claimed wrote an email he forwarded to CREW) have come up empty.

I know that politicians and other public figures are subjected to fewer protections under libel laws, but I would like to see all the right-wing publications who pounced on this scandal (if it indeed these allegations turn out to be false) to crawl away from this with a bloodied nose.

IMO CREW got played. perhaps this is why.

The New York Times called on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) to remove Menendez's Senate Foreign Relations Committee gavel "at least pending credible resolution by the Senate Ethics Committee of the swirling accusations of misconduct."

i've read but don't remember why the right wants him off that. probably the benghazi non scandal.

Well that's a refreshing twist on an old classic.
