Homeland Security Delayed Arrest Of Democrat Senator’s Staffer Until After Election

la--20121101

Senator Bob Menendez, who was involved in a sex scandal which broke just before election day, finds himself in more hot water:

U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez employed as an unpaid intern in his Senate office an illegal immigrant who was a registered sex offender, now under arrest by immigration authorities, The Associated Press has learned.

That’s really, really bad. But it’s not the worst part. Apparently, the Department of Homeland Security ordered a delay in the arrest until after election day:

The Homeland Security Department instructed federal agents not to arrest him until after Election Day, a U.S. official involved in the case told the AP.

Homeland Security is under the direction of Janet Napolitano who, in turn, was appointed by and serves at the pleasure of President Barack Obama.

So, who ordered the cover up which allowed Menendez to be elected to another six year term, giving him plenty of time to wait out the resulting scandal?

    Well, let’s see just how much coverage the press will give this or if it is just another episode of “move along, nothing to see here”. I just love it when the media talks about how scandal free Obama is, not a hard trick when they sweep everyone one under the rug for him. The man could be caught on tape drugged out in a Vegas flop house with a dead hooker and the media would find a way to ignore it.
