A shocking email posted online yesterday  claims that under fire New Jersey Democratic Senator Bob Menendez had a   predilection for  young and inexperienced prostitutes and may have slept with a minor.

Allegedly written by a young Dominican  prostitute and published by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethic in Washington  (Crew), the email claims that Menendez ‘likes the youngest and newest  girls’.

Dating from April, the electronic exchange  has been examined by the Daily  Caller and according to their  translators the Spanish writing indicated someone who was ‘very young and  unsophisticated.’

The Democratic politician has been hit with a  series of allegations since November that he and a prominent donor frequently  traveled by private plane to the Dominican Republic where they paid multiple  prostitutes to attend their sex parties.

And yesterday, Robert Menendez empahticaly  denied the allegations as the FBI raided the home of donor and wealthy Florida  eye doctor, Salomon Melgen, who also denies the claims.

The email is part of a chain of  whistle-blowing exchanges between CREW and a concerned American citizen who  claims to have knowledge of Senator Menendez and his attendance of sex parties  in the Dominican Republic.

Included in the exchange is an email from one  of the girls who claims to have participated in these orgies and was paid by the  senator for sex.

‘In the beginning he seemed so serious,  because he never spoke to anyone, but he is just like the others and has just  about the same tastes as the doctor, very refined. I think they were taking us  more often to get us checked [medically] because of him,’ wrote the girl.

Her name is being withheld by MailOnline  because she may have been a minor when her alleged encounters with Menendez  occurred.

In her email, the young lady expresses fear  at coming forward.

‘I do not want to have problems with those  people,” she wrote, adding that she believed ‘I can trust you, that you will  help us, and that nothing bad will happen to the other young girls, to me, or to  my family.’

‘The thing that worries me the most is that  if they know that I spoke with someone they will find me,’ she added.

The alleged prostitute says that she was  working with a Dominican escort service called The Doll Palace and that a code  word, ‘chocolate’ was used to summon her and other girls to Melgen’s alleged sex  parties.

To prove herself she gave detailed  descriptions of Melgen’s pimp and the houses where she slept with house  guests.

The account is the most detailed since  allegations emerged in November that Senator Menendez had attended sex parties  in the Dominican Republic.

She is said to have told the whistle-blower  who did not include her email with a cache of documents he sent to CREW on  January 24th.

The DC was first to report on that dossier  about Senator Menendez, which included an interview transcript in which a  different woman claimed she was 16 when she began sleeping with him.

That young prostitute said she had sex with  Menendez ‘three times at least’ in 2009.

‘The first one in February, and then in May  and June. I recall his visit in June so well because that month was my 17th  birthday.’

Yesterday, New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez  today denied allegations of sleeping with prostitutes in the Dominican Republic.

The Democratic politician was forced to issue  the statement after the FBI raided the home of one of his big shot political  donors, a prominent Florida eye doctor.

Dr Salomon Melgen, a contributor to Menendez  and other politicians, has been suspected of providing free trips on his private  plane to the Dominican Republic.

 

Menendez was first accused of  sleeping with  prostitutes on the island shortly before last November’s election when  the  website the Daily  Caller said he used Dr Melgen’s plane to travel to the Dominican Republic to meet with the call girls.

He initially refused to address the report,  calling it a bunch of ‘fallacious  allegations.’

Prostitution is legal in the Dominican  Republic.

Menendez, the chairman of the Senate Foreign  Relations Committee, did say he traveled on Dr Melgen’s plane on three occasions and trips were ‘paid for and reported  appropriately.’

Menendez’s office did not say whether the  three trips were to the Dominican Republic or elsewhere.

They also did not say whether the trips were  paid by Menendez personally or by his senatorial or his campaign accounts, nor  did it specify how they were reported.

If Menendez did not pay for the trips, he  would have to report them on annual financial disclosure forms as  gifts.

If he paid for the trips from his Senate  office account, he would have to report them on Senate office forms. And if he  used campaign funds, he would have had to report the expense on Federal Election  Commission forms.

 

The Associated Press searched six years of  office and travel-related  expenses for Menendez’s U.S. Senate office and found  no reports  reflecting payments to Melgen or trips aboard Melgen’s plane.

The AP also found no apparent  reimbursement  to Melgen in more than six years’ worth of campaign  expenses on file with the  Federal Election Commission.

Records filed in Palm Beach County  show an  Internal Revenue Service lien against Dr Melgen of more than  $11.1million for  unpaid taxes from 2006 through 2009.

Prior liens for taxes from 1998 to 2002 were  subsequently withdrawn, records show.

Despite Dr Melgen’s financial problems, he  and his family have contributed at least $357,000 to candidates and committees  since 1998, according to Florida and federal campaign records.

Of that, the Melgens have contributed about  9 percent to Menendez’s federal campaigns, the Miami  Herald reported.

Dr Melgen has become regarded as a top  ophthalmologist, speaking at conferences and even operating on then Florida Gov.  Lawton Chiles in 1997.

Calls to Melgen’s offices were forwarded to  an answering service where receptionists told callers to try back Thursday.

Calls to Melgen’s home in North Palm Beach,  which is appraised at $2.1million, went unanswered.

In a statement to The New York  Times on Wednesday, Dr Melgen’s  lawyer said: ‘The government has not informed Dr Melgen what its concerns are.  However, we are confident that Dr. Melgen has acted appropriately at all times.
