Another Menendez, North Hudson Community Action Center “Coincidence”

Manny Diaz and Bob Menendez were law partners in Union City during the early 1980s.

Nine years ago, Diaz was arrested for cocaine trafficking in a case that eventually landed him in federal prison for two years. In 1999, the year he began serving his sentence, he was also disbarred for misusing his clients' money and other breaches.

Today, Diaz is the director of emergency food and shelter services for the North Hudson Community Action Center. That’s the same agency involved in a federal investigation launched last week over a deal Menendez had with the nonprofit.

As a member of the U.S. House, Menendez steered millions in federal funding to the agency while collecting more than $300,000 in rental income and over $30,000 in campaign contributions from the nonprofit’s employees.

When Menendez was triumphantly sworn in as Jon Corzine's replacement in the U.S. Senate in January, Diaz was on hand, having already contributed more than $4,000 toward the Democrat's campaign for a full term.

What a coincidence.

No way not this year... I think the idiots of NJ have finally hit the breaking point. They finally realize what is happen to our state and know that change needs to come. They will be sending a message to all those crooked politicians in public life for personal gain! (ok I am being really optimistic on that)... But they won't be voting that crook Menendez into office. Right now it seems like the press is working full time to help prevent that from happening. Kean by 8 points once the rest of Menendez storied past is broken in the past and the people of NJ realize Kean is the real deal (A honest, caring, great human being who will always stand up for what he believes in.) Not to mention a politician we can be proud of having in statewide office!! Call up the Kean HQ today and volunteer to help him win, this is our race to win we can do this! Go volunteer!
