Menendez Seeks Probe of Cuban Effort to Smear Him

Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) "is asking the Justice Department to pursue evidence obtained by U.S. investigators that the Cuban government concocted an elaborate plot to smear him with allegations that he cavorted with underage prostitutes," the Washington Post reports.

"In a letter sent to Justice Department officials, the senator's attorney asserts that the plot was timed to derail the ­political rise of Menendez (D-N.J.), one of Washington's most ardent critics of the Castro regime. At the time, Menendez was running for reelection and was preparing to assume the powerful chairmanship of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee."
