    Embattled New Jersey Sen. Menendez got his hand swatted Thursday by the Senate Ethics Committee.

    Menendez has spent the last several years embroiled in a legal battle over allegations he took money and gifts from Democrat donor, Salmon Melgen.

    Sen. Menendez was tried twice for corruption, the first a mistrial, and the second he was found not guilty. The lengthy legal battle left Democrats concerned they may need a backup for his seat.

    In a public letter, the Senate Ethics Committee wrote:

    The letter brutally detailed the charges against Menendez one by one.

    Further, they claimed Sen. Menendez’s actions, “violated Senate Rules and related statutes, and reflected discredit upon the Senate. They then ordered him to pay back in full, all gifts and to update his financial disclosure forms.

    Menendez is up for re-election this year. Current polling shows Menendez holding a double-digit lead over his Republican opponent.

    Oh. No. Not the old ‘Severely admonished’ punishment. Will he ever live it down. I can see his colleagues giving him the silent treatment until he breaks and resigns from his $174,000/yr salary, and joins a monastery.
