    They have intimate connections with Latin American prostitutes.

    So far there doesn't seem to be much of a scandal here. CREW confirmed that the senator took three trips to the DR on a wealthy donor's jet. The trips were disclosed and the donor was reimbursed - all above board. The trail went cold there...no evidence of consorting with prostitutes of any age. Remember prostitution is legal in the DR - ask Rush.

    Then it just plain gets weird. Apparently this was not enough of a story for Univision already. It seems the anonymous tipster pushing the story had the name of one of the alleged underage prostitutes. So they find a young lady with a matching name on Facebook and of course that's enough to dispatch a camera crew to her house and hound the poor girl and her family.

    The real scandal is continuing to report this smear as news. Based on all the available facts, a US Senator and a poor young lady with the misfortune of being born to her name are now forced to defend their reputations against some incredibly spurious allegations.
