Senator Menendez and Wife Indicted on Bribery Charges

From an AP story by Jake Offenhartz headlined “Sen. Menendez, wife indicted on bribe charges as probe finds $100,000 in gold bars”:

U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey and his wife were indicted Friday on bribery charges after an investigation that turned up $100,000 in gold bars and $480,000 in hidden cash at their home, prosecutors said.

Federal prosecutors announced the charges against the 69-year-old Democrat nearly six years after an earlier criminal case against him ended with a deadlocked jury. They said a search of Bob Menendez’s home turned up $100,000 in gold bars and $480,000 in hidden cash.
