By Jose Lambiet, GossipExtra (Jan. 30, 2013) - A successful West Palm Beach eye doctor saw his West Palm Beach offices raided by FBI agents last night in a mushrooming U. S. Senate sex scandal.
Ophthalmologist Salomon Melgen, who also has clinics in Wellington, Port St. Lucie and Delray Beach, is believed to have offered free trips and procured underage prostitutes in his native Dominican Republic for U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez, a prominent Democratic Party leader who represents New Jersey.
The G-men were seen carrying box after box of documents out of Melgen’s Metrocentre Boulevard office and stack them neatly in waiting vans.
