There’s a lot of moving parts, so stay with me here.
Senator Menendez has a prostitute problem… allegedly. They’re being provided for him by Dr. Salomon Melgen… again, allegedly.
Dr. Melgen owns homes in Florida and the Dominican Republic; also doing business in both. He co-founded a digital magazine called Voxxi. Voxxi released a stringent defense of the doctor this morning. It also quoted Vinicio “Vinicito” Castillo Seman, a politically-connected Dominican, who claims the people behind this include an “unnamed powerful group of businessmen who are opposed to increase security inspections and measures.”
The Daily Caller just broke a story on him… this morning.
They took down the story while we were working on this piece: Voxxi Defends Co-Founder Dr. Salomon Melgen, Drug Cartels and the Vinicio Castillo Semán Connection.
After reaching out to Voxxi for a comment and sending tweets, they restored the article.

We’re going to keep working on this story as it develops.
Update (10:00 pm ET): Voxxi News has once again taken down the post defending its co-founder, Dr. Salomon Melgen, in the wake of an alleged prostitution scandal with U.S. Senator Robert Menendez.
