Anything that makes that insufferable twerp Tucker Carlson (above) uncomfortable is fine with me.

And such seems to be the case with regard to rumor-mongering by Carlson and other right-wing pundits to the effect that Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey has a history of diddling underage prostitutes.

An attorney for Menendez is asking the Justice Department to investigate evidence that the allegations against Menendez were falsehoods planted by Cuban intelligence officials to smear the senator, who’s a long-time critic of Fidel Castro.

Tom Kludt has more on this matter HERE:

Tucker Carlson, the longtime conservative pundit and editor-in-chief of the Daily Caller, told WaPo that he’d be surprised if the allegations were in fact concocted by the Cuban government but he acknowledged that he couldn’t “assess it without more information.”

“It’s bizarre on its face, but also fascinating,” Carlson said.

In an email to Business Insider published early Tuesday morning, Carlson went even further in expressing skepticism, once again calling the claim “bizarre” and making a point to question Menendez’s credibility…

The original allegations first appeared in the Daily Caller in November 2012 — mere days before Menendez secured re-election — in an article authored by Matthew Boyle, a conservative journalist who now writes for Breitbart News.
