Can Menendez Survive?

Politico says that In some states the allegations against Sen. Robert Menenedez (D-NJ) -- improper flights to the Dominican Republic and alleged patronizing of prostitutes, including underage girls -- "would be enough to sink Menendez. But in New Jersey, that may not be enough to topple the Hudson County political boss, who runs the political machine for a part of Jersey known for being rough and tumble and who easily won reelection last year."

Meanwhile, a Newark Star-Ledger editorial said the scandal surrounding the senator raised "serious doubts about his fitness to serve as chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee."

"Before he takes that post, Menendez needs to break his silence and explain himself."
