New Jersey Democrat Senator Bob Menendez was re-elected Monday night to another six-year term despite a plethora of negative issues.
What’s crazy is that a juror from Bob’s corruption trial attended his victory party.
From Daily Wire:
North Jersey Record reporter Scott Fallon reported that Evelyn Arroyo-Maultsby, of Hillside, New Jersey, attended Menendez’s victory party in a Hoboken hotel.
“Arroyo-Maultsby became slightly famous when she left the jury during deliberations to go on vacation – arrangements she made with U.S. District Judge William H. Walls, along with defense lawyers and prosecutors,” Fallon wrote. “Arroyo-Maultsby wore a Menendez T-shirt on Tuesday night that she received at a rally last month.”
Among the supporters tonight @SenatorMenendez’s HQ is Evelyn Arroyo-Maultsby, a juror on his federal corruption trial. She achieved some fame when she left the jury last year during deliberations to go on vacation. She would’ve voted for acquittal. @northjersey pic.twitter.com/mVNSJdwGtK

Hillary Clinton is a self-described feminist.
Yet, she has campaigned for Menendez “who was nearly convicted of corruption and who has long been dogged by allegations of sexual impropriety.”
From The Daily Wire:
Hillary Clinton, now a self-declared “feminist icon” and “believe all women” activist, is traveling to New Jersey this weekend and apparently is leaving her sense of irony at home — she’s hosting a fundraiser for embattled Senate Democrat Bob Menendez who was nearly convicted of corruption and who has long been dogged by allegations of sexual impropriety.
Bob Menendez was accused of partying with prostitutes in the Dominican Republic, and unsubstantiated allegations about his extracurriculars have dogged him for years. According to the stories, Menendez used a donor’s private plane to jet between Miami and the island nation, where he took part in “parties” which sometimes involved underaged girls.
On the mistrial, per Reuters:
The corruption trial of New Jersey’s Democratic U.S. Senator Bob Menendez ended in a mistrial on Thursday, after the jury said it was hopelessly deadlocked on bribery, fraud and other charges.
It was a shame that Republican Bob Hugin lost to Menendez.
It was mostly expected given how blue New Jersey is, but a shame nonetheless.
Why he was rewarded with another term is anyone’s guess, but the fact that people chose to look beyond Menendez’s problems says a lot.
