And now he’s putting his word into action.
But there’s a catch: Since authorities discovered they found nearly half a million dollars in cash at Menendez’s home, mostly stuffed into envelopes, Fetterman wants to return the money in envelopes stuffed with them, too Hundred dollar bills.
On Saturday, Fetterman called on Menendez to resign from the Senate, saying that while the senator is “entitled to the presumption of innocence,” he “cannot exercise further influence on national policy, particularly given the serious and specific nature of the allegations.” ”
He also claimed that the huge amounts of cash allegedly found in his home came from his personal savings account.
“For 30 years, I have withdrawn thousands of dollars in cash from my personal savings account, which I kept for emergencies and because of a history of my family being confiscated in Cuba,” Menendez said.
Fetterman wasn’t impressed by the explanation, later tweeting, “We have an extra flashlight in our house for emergencies.”
