Hours after a federal judge dismissed an indictment against Sen. Bob Menendez, Republican State Chairman Doug Steinhardt has stepped up his attacks on the Democratic Senator, who is up for re-election this fall.
“Narrowly avoiding a re-trial on federal corruption charges doesn’t mean Senator Menendez is worthy of reelection,” Steinhardt said. “New Jersey deserves better than a career politician who accepted lavish, tropical vacations and private jets courtesy of a major campaign donor, and then tried to hide those perks from the public.
The Republican leader says that Menendez’s “real judge and jury will be voters who have already indicated they overwhelmingly find his behavior unacceptable.”
The burden of proof is back on Senator Menendez’s shoulders and New Jersey’s electorate will decide if he’s worthy of their vote in November,”Steinhardt said.
