You have to marvel at the nerve of Bob Menendez. The New Jersey Democrat is currently on trial for bribery and corruption charges. But he’s still asking people to give him campaign donations!
The Washington Examiner reports:
18 counts of bribery can’t stop Bob Menendez. The disgraced New Jersey Democrat is still asking for campaign donations
Indomitable in the face of reality, Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., is apparently too insulated by his corruption to realize his own fate. Menendez allegedly accepted flights on private jets, vacations at luxury resorts, and campaign contributions in exchange for political favors from a wealthy physician. His bribery trial has been ongoing and it looks increasingly bleak.
But even the threat of jail time can’t keep the senator from trying to make a buck. Though charged with 18 counts of bribery and fraud, Menendez continues to fundraise for his campaign.

“Bob Menendez has spent his entire adult life fighting for the people of New Jersey,” his campaign committee wrote in an email. “It’s a job he loves.” The campaign then links to donations page.
This guy could end up going to jail. Will his donors get their money back if that happens?
