Indicted Sen. Menendez Won’t Seek Re-Election in November

Sources have told The New York Post that Sen. Bob Menendez, who faces 18 federal charges, will not seek re-election in November.

People have been calling for Menendez to resign, but that won’t happen. He told Forbes when asked about re-election, he said, “Ah, that’s another question.”

The news comes the day after the feds revealed two new charges against Menendez and his wife Nadine. They now face 18 counts, including bribery and obstruction of justice.

One of the men involved in the alleged bribery scheme pleaded guilty this week and agreed to cooperate with the feds:

Menendez, 70, and his wife Nadine Arslanian, 56, were charged Tuesday in a fresh indictment with lying to federal investigators and obstructing justice while Menendez was charged with acting as an unregistered agent of the government of Qatar.

That added to charges which were first brought in October accusing the couple of accepting gold bars and nearly $500,000 in cash in exchange for favors to New Jersey businessmen and the Egyptian government.

The Southern District of New York brought charges against Menendez and Nadine in September for allegedly accepting “hundreds of thousands of dollars of bribes” to protect three New Jersey businessmen and work on behalf of Egypt.

The feds allege the Menendezes “accepted cash, gold, payments toward a home mortgage, compensation for a low or-no-show job, a luxury vehicle, and other things of value.”
