Shirley Maia-Cusick Slams Menendez Over Legal Defense Fund
The Shirley Maia-Cusick for U.S. Senate campaign released the following statement in response to Senator Bob Menendez’s formation of another Legal Defense Fund.
After spending over $230,000 in campaign funds, Senator Bob Menendez has created another legal defense fund in response to his most recent federal criminal investigation. This is not the first time the embattled Senator has been under federal criminal investigation and given his track record, it is unlikely to be his last.
“New day, same corruption,” said Shirley Maia-Cusick. “This is exactly why I am running. I am so sick of government officials thinking they are above the law and putting their own interests ahead of their Constituents needs. To my fellow New Jerseyans who are also disgusted by his corruption: we have a chance to change in 2024! Let’s vote for more transparency, accountability, and ethics in our government. Let’s retire Bob Menendez and reclaim OUR American Dream!”
In 2012, the Senator was accused of having sex with underage girls after multiple visits to the Dominican Republic. In 2015, Menendez was indicted on Federal Corruption Charges. In 2018, the Senator was admonished by The Senate Ethics Committee and stated that he had repeatedly violated Senate rules. Since October 2022, the shameless Senator finds himself once again under a Federal investigation for bribery and corruption.
Shirley Maia-Cusick is a successful business owner, wife, mother and proud grandmother of six. Shirley recently filed her candidacy to run for The United States Senate. She is the leading Republican candidate set to replace Bob Menendez in 2024.
