[Ed. – You had to see that one coming, right? Since Menendez is a Democrat, I guess the media will let him get away with it, instead of suddenly (re)discovering the unprotected category of “white Hispanic.”]
The Menendez victory dance was a bit offputting to say the least, and even in his moment of temporary victory he had to find someone to blame for all of his legal troubles. Who better than the FBI? And why would they have it out for him? Because they’re a bunch of racists, obviously.
Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez is citing racism as the reason the FBI investigated him for corruption.
The case against him ended in a mistrial Thursday after jurors twice said they were deadlocked, but Menendez says the entire investigation into his activities was fueled by “certain elements” of the FBI and the state who had a problem with his race.
“Certain elements of the FBI and of our state cannot understand or even worse accept that the Latino kid from Union City and Hudson County can grow up to be a United States senator and be honest,” Menendez said at a news conference Thursday.
