Menendez ‘Severely Admonished’ by Committee

The Senate Ethics Committee said that Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) “who avoided conviction in a federal corruption trial last year, violated federal law and Senate rules in accepting unreported gifts from a friend and political ally whom Menendez used his office to assist,” the Washington Post reports.

“In a four-page ‘letter of admonition,’ the six members of the panel ordered Menendez to pay back the gifts he received from Salomon Melgen, a Florida eye doctor, and said that he is ‘hereby severely admonished.’l
