New Jersey Democrat Bob Menendez was let off the hook by a hung jury which couldn’t decide on a verdict in his corruption trial. During a press conference afterwards however, he actually started issuing warnings to his critics.

Menendez to Opponents: ‘I Know Who You Are, and I Won’t Forget You’
Sen. Bob Menendez (D., N.J.), previously on trial for corruption charges, had a warning Thursday for those in New Jersey “who were digging his political grave.”
Menendez had been charged with 18 counts of corruption, including bribery. Thursday, the judge ruled the case a mistrial owing to a hung jury. Menendez treated the result as a vindication following “unjust prosecution,” and as he closed his press remarks, he said he would remember those who opposed him for political reasons.
“To those who were digging my political grave so they could jump into my seat, I know who you are, and I won’t forget you,” he said, to some laughter from listeners.
Menendez credited those who stuck by him while also saying he was willing to forgive people who did not defend him publicly.

This guy is very lucky he’s not in jail. Maybe he should cool it with the comments.
