Bob Menendez Pleads Not Guilty to Corruption Charges

U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges that he accepted nearly $1 million in gifts and campaign contributions from a longtime friend in exchange for a stream of political favors, and his lawyer compared the case to the government’s failed prosecutions of former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens and former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards.
