Dominican woman says she was paid to say she had sex with U.S. senator

(CNN) - After asserting in a video that U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez paid her for sex, a Dominican woman now says she was paid to make those claims and has never met the New Jersey Democrat, a court document states.

According to a notarized document, Nexis de los Santos Santana said she was filmed without her knowledge when she claimed to have had sex with Menendez.

    See how republicans use gutter tactics aka McConnell to win elections and hurt someone knowing they're a political threat as McConnell now going after Ms Judd an actress..But guess what republicans we won't after midterms have to worry about your extremism,gutter play anymore because you'll be just a dirty memory in the gran scheme of politics kicked to the curb and hopefully stays there!!

    So she was candidly filmed... and payed to lie? That makes no sense, if you pay someone to lie, you aren't going to hide that you are recording them, and no one in their right mind would believe they were being payed to lie to a wall.

    Sounds more like she was payed to SAY she had lied more then anything. I don't care where senator hooks up, or with who. But this smells like bs.

    If Breitbart was still above ground, I'd say this has his dirty fingerprints all over it–but, he's having a dirt nap...

    Wait, what is James O'Keefe doing now? Is he working for the 'Daily Caller'? This would be typical of his sleazy methods.

    This is a job for McCain and Graham. The should use some of their rage to find out who paid her to incriminate a member of Congress.

    Republicans, really know how to bring moral issues to the forefront. It's just a shame they cant live up to the standards they set for the rest of the populace. It's also a good bet that if a republican gains access to power (he or she), did so with the help of nefarious activities, I.E. lies, deceit, underhanded political activities of some kind. If they were to divulge they're true selves, they never get elected. They'd glow in the dark from all they're contaminated dealings.

    This is starting to smell. If she could be paid to make the statement – she could be paid even more to take it back. Let's see. If this was Senator Rubio – the media would be all over it. Where are they now??????

    sad news lets God first in whatever we do. The love of money has led to breakdown of people's thinking stanard.

    Hmm. Somehow this does not pass the "smell test." I really wonder how much $ this woman was paid to "come clean." After all, we all know Democrats can do NO wrong. That has been proven time and time again by the "head honcho" of the Democratic party (The Great Divider-in-Chief).

    This thing will probably just be "swept under the rug" by Democrats and their misguided/clueless supporters, or, Maxine Waters will come to Mr. Menendez's aid.

    Oh well...
