Police in the Dominican Republic say the three women who claimed to be prostitutes who had sex with Senator Robert Menendez were paid to lie.

However, Menendez is fighting a more credible threat.

A Miami grand jury is investigating whether he pressured the Dominican government into honoring a port security contract with his friend.
