You know things are bad for a Democrat when even MSNBC is admitting things look bad. This week, Ari Melber made the point on his show this week.

MSNBC Host: Case Against Menendez ‘Doesn’t Look Close, It Looks Overwhelming’
The corruption case against Democratic New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez “looks overwhelming,” MSNBC host Ari Melber told viewers Wednesday night.
Menendez is facing a dozen corruption-related charges in connection with allegations that he wrongfully assisted a friend, Dr. Salomon Melgen, navigate government issues while Melgen attempted to get away with more than $100 million in Medicare fraud.
If Menendez is somehow acquitted despite the “overwhelming” case against him, Melber said, “you have to wonder if there’s something wrong with all of these corruption laws in the first place.”…
“The case against Menendez as a legal matter doesn’t look close, it looks overwhelming,” Melber said.
Watch the video:
If Menendez is found guilty, it’s bad news not only for him but Democrats too.
FOX News reports:
What happens if Menendez is convicted?
If Menendez is convicted and goes to prison, Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., would pick a replacement.
That prospect is troublesome for Democrats who fear that Christie would pick a Republican to fill the Senate seat – giving the GOP an additional edge for legislative fights.
