- According to an FBI court affidavit, Senator Bob Menendez’s name was entered 9 different times on something described as having “looked to be a ledger of prostitution activities”
- There were pages and pages of names of men, women, phone numbers, and nationalities in the notebook found in the office of Dr. Solomon Melgen
- These documents were revealed during a flurry of legal motions filed in the corruption case against the New Jersey Senator and the Florida Doctor
When federal agents looking into health care fraud searched the office of Florida eye doctor Solomon Melgen in January 2013, they found references to U.S. Senator Robert Menendez scattered all around.
There was a copy of a $58,500 check from the senator to his doctor friend — a repayment for trips aboard Melgen’s private jet that were made years earlier. There were other details about flights the New Jersey senator took.
Then there was a black notebook, found on the bottom shelf of a bookcase, according to court records. In it, agents found what “looked to be a ledger of prostitution activities,” FBI Special Agent Gregory Sheehy wrote in a court affidavit. Menendez’s name also appeared in the notebook, along with his phone number, Sheehy wrote.
Sheehy later filed a more detailed affidavit that discussed the notebook, which he said included the names of numerous women, many “denoted simply by a single name in quotation marks.” Most included a phone number next to their name, and a few mentioned a nationality, Sheehy wrote in the affidavit. There were also names of men, including Menendez, Sheehy said. The senator’s name appeared on nine separate pages.
“On each of those pages, Senator Menendez’s name appears along with the names and phone numbers of several women and men,” Sheehy wrote. “On one of these pages, one of the women’s names is accompanied by her nationality, ‘Spain’; on a second page, one of the women’s names is accompanied by the name of a city in the Dominican Republic, ‘Macoris’ and on a third page, one of the women’s names is listed in quotation marks as ‘Jaditza.’”
