Democratic Senator Bob Menendez and his wife Nadine Arslanian Menendez have been indicted by a federal grand jury over corruption allegations in an investigation that focused on a luxury car, $400,000 in gold bars and cash, plus payments toward a home mortgage allegedly received by Menendez and his wife. The indictment claims the couple had an improper relationship with three New Jersey businessmen: Wael Hana, Jose Uribe and Fred Daibes, who allegedly paid the couple in exchange for Menendez to use his influence in Washington D.C. to their benefit. The couple face three criminal counts each: conspiracy to commit bribery, conspiracy to commit honest services fraud, and conspiracy to commit extortion under color of official right. The three businessmen face charges of conspiracy to commit bribery and conspiracy to commit honest services fraud.
‘We met at an IHOP and he was very, very hot’: Inside ‘corrupt’ Democratic NJ senator Bob Menendez’s whirlwind romance with second wife Nadine – including a VERY cheesy marriage proposal at Taj Mahal
The story of now-indicted lovebirds Senator Bob Menendez and Nadine Arslanian had humble beginnings over pancakes at a Union City, New Jersey IHOP where the owner had introduced the pair. ‘I didn’t know at that time that Bob was a senator,’ the Lebanon-born Arslanian, 58, told the New York Times of Menendez, 69. ‘He was very intelligent and had a great sense of humor, and he was very, very hot.’ The Democratic senator described Arslanian as ‘beautiful and bright and had such a great personality. There was just this aura about her.’ Their romance was fast and furious: they traveled the world together, visiting four continents in five months before Menendez proposed in India in October 2019.
