FBI agents search office of Florida doctor known as Sen. Menendez's donor

(CNN) - Federal agents on Tuesday raided a South Florida office of Dr. Salomon Melgen, an eye doctor whose past issues with authorities had already entangled Sen. Robert Menendez.

With yellow crime tape strung up outside, men and women lugged box after box of materials from Melgen's West Palm Beach office into awaiting minivans. Both members of the federal Health and Human Services department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation took part in the search, which FBI Special Agent Michael Leverock said was the second at the same Melgen clinic - the other coming last January.

    What a surprise, a Democrat? No way. Just because they left hostages in Iran for over a year under Carter, just because they left Americans behind in Benghazi only to be murdered later, just because they profess this new health law that "mandates" we use it but there are over 1200 exceptions including those for Congress men and women. That doesn't mean this Democrat has done anything wrong? After all, they've only added debt at triple the rate Bush did: $5 trillion in 8 years under Bush, compared to almost $9 trillion in 5 years and climbing. And of course, they're targeting conservatives using the IRS, infringing on free speech in conservative media, there's no possible way there could be some mischief with Democrats, right?
