The Dept. of Homeland Security is denying a report it delayed the arrest of an intern working for New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez until after Election Day.

The Associated Press also says that this intern was a registered sex offender and an undocumented immigrant from Peru.

This 18-year-old was arrested last week.

Sen. Menendez denies knowing anything about the charges.
