NEW YORK (WABC)—— On Wednesday’s “Overtime,” we discuss the latest indictment against New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez. Menendez surrendered in a Lower Manhattan courthouse on Wednesday after being accused of paying bribes in exchange for favors and secretly benefiting the Egyptian government. Menendez has pleaded not guilty to federal corruption charges he faces. Prosecutors said Menendez sold his office’s influence in exchange for money, gold bullion and lavish gifts.
