One of the Jurors in Menendez Corruption Trial Spotted at His Election Party

One of the jurors who was selected in the 2017 federal corruption trial of Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) was spotted celebrating his reelection victory.

Evelyn Arroyo-Maultsby, the juror who was known for being dismissed from the case due to a long-planned vacation, said at the time that she would have acquitted Menendez.

However, her appearance at the Menendez’s campaign headquarters in Hoboken on Tuesday night raised an eyebrow from a local New Jersey journalist.

“I came out here tonight because I know Bob Menendez is a very good man,” Arroyo-Maultsby told reporter Scott Fallon. “And I was in the courtroom and I saw all the evidence, they didn’t have enough evidence. What he did wrong- he did nothing wrong. He’s a great man. That’s why I’m supporting Menendez. I voted for im.”

She then flashed her Menendez campaign T-shirt that she was wearing to Fallon.

Fallon followed up their exchange with some brief commentary.
