    After The Washington Post tried to dump cold water on a scandal the conservative Daily Caller has been hyping for months, Rep. Robert Menendez’s alleged fling with two prostitutes in the Dominican Republic, the Caller says the paper got the story entirely wrong. The Post interviewed a young woman named Nexis de los Santos Santana, who said she had been hired by a lawyer to tell a false story to journalists, which she was told was needed for a divorce case. Her account seemed to take the wind out of the Caller’s crusade, but the site now says they interviewed two different women, not including Santana. Santana claims in the Post story that she was “surreptitiously taped,” but the Caller contends that both of the women interviewed for its story consented to the presence of a webcam.
