Univision is reporting that a Dominican woman alleged to have had sex with U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) says she never met Menendez - and never even saw him on television.

"It's completely false," Yaneisy Fernandez, 21, of the Southern Dominican Republic told the Spanish-language news network.

Engaged to be married, according to the news report, Fernandez is shown sobbing in the news clip as she denies the story.

Fernandez was identified by the anonymous tipster known only as Peter Williams as one of the prostiutes that Menendez and friend Salomon Melgen repeatedly had sex with.

"Several young prostitutes always participate in these private activities," Williams wrote in the dossier provided to a Washington watchdog group that was later forwarded to the FBI. "Some of them have been identified by my friends as Yaneisy Fernandez and another Dominican girl were known as “the Honey”. These two girls were Melgen´s preferred ones." 

"Williams" also identifies Fernandez as at one time Melgen's private mistress.

Her mother told Univision that her daughter - whom she identified in a photo linking her to the U.S. Senator from New Jersey is a virgin, and she can prove it. 

She plans to file an investigation, according to the report.

"She goes from the home to the university, from the university, home," said the mother regarding Yanesi Fernandez's routine.

Later in the day the Miami Herald cast doubt on the report, calling it a "bombshell" or the "height of irresponsible reporting."
