As Sen. Bob Menendez continues to hide out in an undisclosed location and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid tells ABC News he “did nothing wrong,” the Twitterverse has erupted.

It’s almost like John Edwards, John Ensign, David Vitter and Anthony Weiner held a joint press conference. (RELATED BLOG: Why is Menendez following a very young-looking Dominican girl on Twitter?)

Here are the ten best tweets about the story that TheDC has seen:

10. Scott Crass: I heard somebody say that Menendez may now be the only Northeastern Dem Sen.who favors investing in offshore drilling.
9. Jeff Pye Lawrence: Is this a cruel joke that Menendez is in possible sex scandal and possible replacement is Woody “Johnson”?
