So, is there anything behind Menendez's assertions? Does he have any proof?

By the way, I am not defending Tucker. Her is a tool and an idiot of the first water. But, so far, everything I have read seems to just cite Menendez's word and nothing else.

Actually, Tucker duped by Cubans is neither worse or better than Tucker completely pulling the story out of his ass.

On won hand, he can play the victim.

Either way, Tucker is an idiot and partisan hack either way but neither does not detract from Menendez being a common crook.  No detail of this story will change any of that.

Just fire him already.

Tricia Enright, the communications director for Menendez, responded to Carlson's charge with a zinger.  "Who's Tucker Carlson?" she wrote in an email to TPM.

lulz.

Tucker Carlson? Isn't that the guy with the ass for a face?

"I guess this means Menendez no longer thinks the story is part of a racist plot against him, as he initially suggested," Carlson wrote.

Did Menendez actually do this?

Didn't he and his brother murder their parents like a Brazilian years ago?

/Why no, I don't keep up-to-date on... much of anything.

Well, if somebody was smearing you with what apparently was a complete bullshiat story saying you frequented prostitutes, I can see one speculating on the reasons for said smears, and, if one is non-white, racism would probably be a speculated reason.  I'm sure "Castro did it" wouldn't be high on the list of initial guesses, even if one is very anti-Cuba.

Tucker Carlson needs to get beaten with someone's helmet.

Meh, essentially sounds like what he was implying. Don't know what to make of all this yet. Both sides seem to be very light on credible evidence.

The best thing in the world for the American progressive movement is for that cowardly son of privilege to keep running his mouth.  Anyone who can't see through that worthless POS in five seconds isn't worth trying to persuade.

Rachel Maddow had an interesting piece about this.
I wasn't able to find the video directly on her site but it's embedded here.  Link

Warning: The segment is long and she only gets to the actual details of the Menendez stuff toward the very end.

One the hand, Senator Menendez is a Senator, which makes anything he says suspect, but on the other hand, Tucker is a weaselly, grade-A douchecanoe and the other players in this "reporting" are just straight-up shady.

So based only on past history, and not having RTFA, I'm just going to save myself some time and just jump straight to assuming Carlson is full of shiat.

A Rachel Maddow segment is overly long and only gets to the point at the very end? Let me explain to you the reasons why this surprises me. First of all... [you get the point]

That said, some of the context here is A+. You get Tucker Carlson being a complete asshat, not just saying "Why should we care about senators engaging in prostitution?" but simultaneously claiming that 1/3 of New Orleans women are prostitutes. Dude's said so many shiatty things I'd forgotten that one. And then of course, it's his own site that is the only one that takes a bare accusation about Menendez seriously, and I can't say that I've ever seen Tucker defend Menendez as vociferously as he claimed he would any Democrat caught in a prostitution scandal.

In this instance Tucker seems to be a lying bag of shiat.
Menendez is a corrupt bag of shiat.

You could say "Tuckerghazi," or you could be a responsible citizen and beat the living sh*t out of him in the street and throw his bow tie in the sewer.

Did nobody pause at the part about 'Cuban intelligence'?

/nothing against the people
//the state/country wahtever
///of course they did stop the CIA from offing Castro, so. . .

If Carlson said it, you can be certain that Carlson said it.

How far would an FBI NSA investigation go when media is the focus? Tucker was just following orders, not that an international espionage network by a hostile foreign government would hold any interest.  I'm sure it's just the first time for the network.

I'd like to think this is true and the entire conservative movement is a communist plot. It makes more sense than thinking these people actually believe the nonsense they spout.
