PUERTO RICO-Admonished Senator Bob Menendez, who was accused by federal prosecutors of engaging in prostitution during his past visits to the Caribbean was spotted this weekend on the beaches of Puerto Rico.
Fox News produced David Alpine today shared a picture of Menendez on Twitter.
“Hardworking Americans who need to feed their families, pay their mortgages & put gas in their cars are not political pawns,” Menendez said of the shutdown before departing to the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean.
Working hard or hardly working?

Senator Menendez is so worried about the government shutdown that he flew to Puerto Rico to hang out on the beach & meet lobbyists & watch the production of Hamilton. Such pain for these federal workers! #ShutdownStory #GovernmentShutdown #116thCongress #EndTheShutdown pic.twitter.com/OGoG1549lm
