(Newser) – The hits keep coming for embattled Sen. Robert Menendez. Sources are telling Fox News that the New Jersey Democrat took at least one more trip to the Dominican Republic on a campaign donor's private plane than he has publicly admitted. The sources say Salomon Melgen flew Menendez there in 2008 for a charity golf tournament, and put him up in his Casa de Campo villa.

"He was on the doc's jet in 2008—that I guarantee," says one source who attended the tournament. Menendez didn't list that trip on his annual disclosure forms. Depending on how the flight was paid for, that might not be a problem legally, but it does contradict the senator's previous statement that he flew on Melgen's plane only in 2010.

Why do we allow our representatives lie to our face and hide the people they truly represent, their campaign donors, not the people voting for them?
