Not the Way to Handle a Political Crisis

A good observation from First Read:

"Menendez violated a cardinal rule of Crisis Management 101: In this denial, he repeated the charge against him. It may seem like a small thing, but the fact is no major news organization -- including ours -- has been able to confirm any of the allegations on the prostitution stuff. And the evidence right now is so tenuous on the prostitution allegation that we decided it was irresponsible to even allude to it by saying 'there are reports,' etc. However, the senator's statement about the prostitution allegations has resulted in a lot of bad press on this front -- more than he would have gotten simply for his connection to the donor/friend under investigation."
