The Wall Street Journal’s out with a story on New Jersey’s Senator Robert Menendez’s latest bit of corruption. I used this particular worm as a character in my first novel, Stocks & Bondage way back in 1994, when he was still just a greedy grasping, totally corrupt Congressmen. My novel was never bought by a publisher while Menendez was rewarded by New Jersey voters with higher office and the opportunity to steal on an even grander scale. So, see? There is justice in the universe, it’s just a bit different than some of us may have thought.
UPDATE: Too funny – someone else has been admiring this clown’s career and follows it with an entire website, RobertMenendezcorruption.com. Don’t you just love the Internet?
