A former campaign spokesman for President Barack Obama said Thursday that there has been too much news coverage of several scandals surrounding New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez.

“There’s a point at which you’ve milked a story so much you look like withered boob. Move on,” Hari Sevugan tweeted Thursday morning, reacting to news that Menendez is still welcome at White House negotiations regarding immigration reform.

Sources have told The Daily Caller that Menendez is actively under investigation by the FBI. He has been implicated in a wide range of ethical and legal lapses, including allegedly providing extraordinary assistance to enhance the business interests of a donor, as well as allegedly sleeping with underage prostitutes.
