Scandal: In a new low for Obama corruption, AP reports that the Homeland Security Department "several times" protected a Democratic senator's registered sex criminal aide from arrest before November's election.
the scandal that broke Wednesday — reported by the Associated Press' Alicia Caldwell — may be impossible for the press to sweep under the Oval Office rug.
Caldwell found that Luis Abrahan Sanchez Zavaleta, an 18-year-old Peruvian illegal alien employed as an unpaid intern in one of the offices of Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., is a registered sex offender:
"The Homeland Security Department instructed federal agents not to arrest him until after Election Day, a U.S. official involved in the case told the AP."
Sanchez was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents on Dec. 6, two federal officials told the AP, and he remains in custody.
