U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez, under fire for his alleged solicitation of underage prostitutes while traveling in the Dominican Republic, was pursued out of the congressional dinner in Washington, D.C. tonight by a horde of state and national media.
But the senator proved quicker than the press corps, heading directly for an elevator to be whisked away.
The senator all but ignored the pursuing journalists, giving nary a backward glance to one reporter's shouts of "senator, did you sleep with prostitutes?"
It was the second such scene tonight as Menendez was pursued by lights and cameras upon his entrance to the ballroom.
Not surprisingly, Menendez made no mention of the allegations, which so far are limited to the word of one anonymous tipster and interviews with two women claiming to be Dominican prostitutes.
