Pascrell Statement on the Indictment of Senator Bob Menendez
PATERSON, NJ – Congressman Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-09) this evening commented on the federal criminal indictment of United States Senator Bob Menendez.
“This is a sad day for our great state,” said Congressman Pascrell. “The hallmark of our justice system is the presumption of innocence and the senator deserves his day in court. But given the gravity of these charges, I do not believe that Senator Menendez can continue to carry out the important duties of his office for our state.”
