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.’
Under fire: Menendez issued a denial yesterday against allegations that he slept with prostitutes in the Dominican Republic
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.’
Friend with a benefit? Dr Melgen gave trips on his private plane to Sen Menendez
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.
