Prostitute Says Allegations Against Menendez Made Up, Says Washington Post. Just One Little Problem . . .
. . . the Post got the wrong prostitute.
The Washington Post mistook one prostitute for another Monday in a report that initially seemed to debunk a November 2012 Daily Caller exposé of New Jersey Democratic Senator Bob Menendez.
While the Post said it had an affidavit from a woman in the Dominican Republic admitting she fabricated claims Menendez paid her for sex, that woman was not one of the two prostitutes TheDC interviewed for a Nov. 1 report.
Did they not ask the Caller which prostitute the Caller had relied on?
Mmm, that’s good journalism!
UPDATE: Tucker Carlson says the WaPo lied about asking him for comment.
Time stamps show the WaPo’s Carol Leonnig emailed me more than 30 minutes after posting her story on us, then pretended I didn’t respond.

Even better journalism!
Thanks to narciso.
UPDATE x2: This appears to be the affidavit relied on by the Washington Post. It’s in Spanish, but I don’t see anything there about the Daily Caller.
