The Washington Post reports that the escort in the Menendez smear “has never met or seen the senator before” and was paid to make it up:
The woman identified a lawyer who approached her and a friend to make the videotape, according to affidavits obtained by the Post. That man has in turn identified another lawyer who gave him a script for the tape and paid him to find women to fabricate the claims, the affidavits say.
Who paid that lawyer? How far will this trail lead?
