Sen. Menendez Wife Excused from Court for Cancer Procedure

We all know the story of Senator Rebert Menendez (D-N.J.), who is about as corrupt as they come.

The Senator is facing serious charges, again, for a bribery scandal, again.

This time, however, his wife, Nadine, is in the middle of it, but her case had been delayed due to a recent cancer diagnosis and treatment.

We Can Wait

If you recall, when Senator Menendez’s trial started, his defense team started to point the blame for the bribery scandal to Nadine.

Not long after that happened, it was revealed that she had been diagnosed with cancer, and then it all started to make sense.

When I learned of her diagnosis, the first thought that went through my head was that Menendez did that figuring his wife might beat the case simply because she did have cancer.

I believe that now more than ever after having seen her trial delayed due to the diagnosis and treatment.

Next week, a pretrial hearing was supposed to take place, but her defense team submitted a request for her to be absent due to pain and other issues related to the diagnosis.

Judge Sidney Stein accepted that request during the week.

Menendez and his wife, as well as three associates, have all been indicted on charges related to a bribery scheme that benefited Egypt.

Both Menendez and his wife pleaded not guilty to the charges, with Senator Menendez saying that he blamed storing gold bars and cash all over his home on his Cuban heritage.

After the charges were filed, Menendez then tried to make it about race, saying prosecutors were going after him simply because he was a Senator who is a man of color.

All of that is completely ridiculous, of course, because Menendez has a long history of corruption, having beaten what seemed like solid cases before, but nothing like he is facing this time around.
