I have been pretty vocal about my dislike of our senator, Bob Menendez, especially due to his Straight From 1962 approach to foreign policy. So i guess i'd be happy to see him leave office no matter what the reason. But just once i'd like to see a politician from New Jersey not get wrapped up in serious corruption allegations. Rumors and weirdness have been swirling around Menendez for a while, but now the Feds are bringing charges.

if he does actually get indicted (great!), that means Christie gets to put someone in his place until we have a special election to fill the seat (bad!), right?
He might not even resign if indicted. But yes, Christie would appoint the replacement and schedule a special election. TPM speculates that Christie might even appoint himself! But i think that would all be preferable to Menendez remaining in power if the corruption charges are true.
