With the indict­ment on Fri­day, Menen­dez is fac­ing cor­rup­tion charges for the sec­ond time in his Sen­ate career after he was indict­ed in 2015. His 2015 indict­ment end­ed in a mis­tri­al three years lat­er, when the jury failed to reach a ver­dict in the case.
Menen­dez has served as a sen­a­tor from the Gar­den State since 2006 and will be up for reelec­tion in 2024. The sen­a­tor’s last elec­tion, in 2018, came short­ly after his cor­rup­tion charges from 2015 were dropped.
