The Office of U.S. Sen. Robert Menéndez yesterday denied in a statement that it had relationships with prostitutes in the Dominican Republic and attributed this information to political motivations of right media.

The statement denies the allegations made against Senator by his friendship with Dr. Salomón Melgen, based in Florida, and the FBI investigates who for financial reasons.

According to the channel conservative Fox News, yesterday the FBI confiscated documentation at the offices of Dr. Melgen, allegedly as part of an investigation into the non-payment of taxes, but it has not been able to determine if it is related to the private travel to Dominican Republic.

ABC News explained that Melgen has some debts with the IRS for $ 11 million, between 2006 and 2009, in addition to that more delinquencies from 6.2 million in 2011.

"Dr. Melgen has been a friend and political support of the Senator Menendez for many years. Senator Menéndez has traveled on the plane of doctor Melgen on three occasions, which have been paid and reported in an appropriate manner", said the statement today.

"Any allegations of affairs with prostitutes have been fabricated for political reasons by a blog on the right and are false," says this Cuban-born Senator's Office.

The public accusations against Menendez began last November on the blog Daily Caller, claiming that the Senator had had encounters with underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic.

The website said that it had interviewed two women who had participated in those meetings. In addition, last week appeared in internet emails that supposedly the FBI spoke with a confidant called Peter Williams who had knowledge of travel.

The Association of citizens for ethics and responsibility in Washington (CREW) has confirmed that in the spring of 2012 was contacted by Williams because this had information about visits to prostitutes of Menéndez in 2008.

CREW contacted the FBI and ABC News, which allegedly did not publish anything without evidence and not to get answers from Williams.

The Association has said that it does not give much credibility to that person who calls himself Williams, since now you don't have intention to collaborate, after showing initial interest in filtering the scandal.

Menendez, a prominent Senator and Chairman of the Committee of Foreign Affairs of the high Chamber, has received $45,000 in donations by Melgen in 2011 and 2012, according to the website Opensecrets.
