The Washington Post mistook one prostitute for another Monday in a report that initially seemed to debunk a November 2012 Daily Caller exposé of New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez.
While the Post said it had an affidavit from a woman in the Dominican Republic admitting she fabricated claims Menendez paid her for sex, that woman was not one of the two prostitutes TheDC interviewed for a Nov. 1 report.
The Post identified the woman as 23-year-old Nexis de los Santos Santana.
The Miami Herald similarly reported that de los Santos “was one of two women who appeared in videos” published by The DC.
De los Santos claimed she was “surreptitiously taped,” the Post wrote.
The Miami Herald noted, however that “in The Daily Caller video, in which she is allegedly the woman wearing green whose face is blurred out, she appears wearing an earpiece and answering questions.”
