Menendez Says He Reimbursed Donor for Flights

Sen. Robert Menendez's (D-NJ) office said last night that he "reimbursed a prominent Florida political donor $58,500 for the full cost of two of three trips Menendez took on the donor's plane to the Dominican Republic in 2010," the AP reports.

"Details of Menendez's trips emerged as his office said unsubstantiated allegations that the senator engaged in sex with prostitutes in the Dominican Republic are false."

NBC News reports the reimbursement came only after an ethics complaint was filed against Menenedez.
