The New Jersey Democrat Senator Bob Menendez retained his Senate seat in a highyl contested election. It was a close race because Menendez has a corrupt past of sleeping with underage prostitutes and government bribery charges. Menendez was able to get a mistrial ruling in 2017 because a juror was refusing to admit Menendez was guilt despite the overwhelming evidence.
However, it is now clear to why that juror was refusing to vote guilty on Menendez. Evelyn Arroyo-Maultsby was the juror that voted not guilty and she was spotted on camera at Bob Menendez celebration part after he won his re-election.
Fallon wrote, “Arroyo-Maultsby became slightly famous when she left the jury during deliberations to go on vacation – arrangements she made with U.S. District Judge William H. Walls, along with defense lawyers and prosecutors. Arroyo-Maultsby wore a Menendez T-shirt on Tuesday night that she received at a rally last month.”
Arroyo-Maultsby said, “I never really knew anything about him before the trial. He’s a good man. I was in that jury room and I know he didn’t do anything wrong,” claiming that she “saw no crime.”
