New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez (D) denies that his office knew one of his unpaid interns was a sex offender who had immigrated illegally. According to the Associated Press, a U.S. official involved in the case told the Homeland Security Department not to arrest him until after the election, which Menendez won.
