September 7, 2017

CoryBookerNEWARK, N.J. — In a show of support for his Garden State colleague, US Sen. Cory Booker showed up for the start of Sen. Robert Menendez’s bribery trialWednesday.

Booker sat in the first row right behind fellow Democrat Menendez, the senior senator from New Jersey, who is on trial for accepting bribes from a wealthy West Palm Beach eye doctor who was convicted of earning millions cheating Medicare.

Also present were prosecutors and defense lawyers from the Bridgegate trial.

Menendez acted as Dr. Salomon Melgen’s “personal United States senator” in exchange “for a lifestyle that was a travel brochure for the rich and famous,” Department of Justice prosecutor Peter Koski said in his opening statement.

    Booker probably has his own bribery scandal, and he’s there to pressure Melendez to keep his mouth shut about it.

    Years ago, when a Republican Senator was indicted on felony charges, the Democrats clearly stated that there is no room in the Senate for convicted felons and that that particular Senator should be expelled and replaced. How will this play out now? If he is removed from the Senate, the Republican Gov of NJ will get to name the replacement. The Demo minority will grow. Will they demand he is replaced by a Democrat? Will they demand the seat remain vacant until a special election is held? Democrats are really good at changing the rules to fit their needs, then demanding they be changed when used against them. Case in Point is in MA. When Kerry left the Seante to run for President and they had a Rep Gov, they changed the rules to hold a special election to replace the Senator. When Kennedy died and they had a Dem Gov, they tried to change the rule back to the GOV appointing a successor. How will this one play out?
