When Republicans commit crimes, other Republicans make excuses or outright denials.
When Democrats commit crimes, it is Democrats who call on them to resign.
It is Democrats who are most loudly calling on Bob Menendez to step down. Menendez whined that he was being targeted because he is Latino. But one of the loudest voices calling for him to step down is Latina Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) who is far more fluent in Spanish language (and Latino culture) than Menendez.
Bob Menendez, who is up for reelection in 2024, should just step down and let Democratic New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy appoint a replacement who can run for an actually win to keep the seat in 2024.
On the bright side (for Menendez), he does have one defender: Republican George Santos (or George Devolder or Anthony Devolder or Anthony Zabrovsky or Kitara Ravache, or whatever his/her/their real name turns out to be).
