Buchyk is just one of the alleged prostitutes named in the online allegations against Menendez and Melgen. The cache of documents published in January mention the names of six women, adding that two additional prostitutes were not named because they were underage girls. (RELATED: Dominican prostitute says Menendez “likes the youngest and newest girls”)

In addition, TheDC spoke with two other women in November who claimed they were paid to have sex with Menendez at Melgen’s home at the Cassa de Campo resort in the Dominican Republic.

Buchyk received traffic tickets in 2010 and 2011, giving police Melgen’s North Palm Beach home address as her residence.

She was also cited by police in 2009 for driving a Chevrolet with tinted windows that were too dark. She listed the business address of Melgen’s eye clinic on the ticket. That location was the subject of an FBI raid in late January that was reportedly related to a Medicare fraud case.

Menendez has admitted intervening on Melgen’s behalf with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services in 2009 and again in 2011, in relation to an $8.9 million Medicare billing dispute.
