Sen. Bob Menendez, D-NJ committed a fundamental crisis-management error by denying allegations that a wealthy donor (Dr. Solomon Melgen) flew him to the Dominican Republic to have sex with underage girl prostitutes.

The news is all over the right-wing media (Drudge Report, and the Daily Caller, linked below) but Chuck Todd also reported it today on MSNBC because since Menendez is now denying it, it's not just a wild accusation any more.

Look for this story to develop or get quietly pushed aside.

But he grew old, this knight so bold / And upon his heart a shadow / Fell as he found / No spot on the ground / That looked like El Dorado.
