The he said, she said of the Menendez saga

As you political nerds and news junkies may have heard, Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) has been embroiled in a series of unsavory scandals as of late. Perhaps the "juiciest" aspect of the multi-part scandal is that the Senator solicited a Dominican prostitute or two while on a recent visit to the country. The unreported flight was paid for by one Dr. Salomon Melgen, a top Menendez donor, whose offices were recently raided by the FBI. Also, at least one of these prostitutes was supposedly  underage.

...or was she?
Come to think of it...do these prostitutes actually exist? If so, did they ever actually meet the Senator?
Where does this rich guy from Florida come in?
Who is getting this information, and where is it coming from?!

The Washington Post, reporting information from the Daily Caller, just recently altered or outright recanted parts of its original report, without informing its readers of the alterations. The most recent Politico article that attempts to unravel the convoluted saga can be seen right here

In short, no one really knows what's going on.

Is Sen. Menendez dirty? Is he a victim of a bizarre smear campaign?

Either way, there appears to be some really poor reporting & fact-checking going on here.
