It appears that Democrat Bob Menendez’ long career as a pro-abortion gun-grabber in the U.S. Senate might soon end.
Federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York have indicted him on a “years-long” bribery scheme that enabled him and his wife to pocket hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash, gold, and other goodies.

This isn’t the first time the feds have tried to bag the slippery Swamp dweller.
