Senator Menendez pays back $58,000 for trips following ethics complaint; two years after trips

We first brought you this story last night - and now, there are new twists in the accusations involving Senator Robert Menendez.

Menendez's office says it has reimbursed a political donor more than $58,000 dollars for two trips to the Dominican Republic back in August and September of 2010.

But the reimbursement came two months after an ethics complaint was filed against him and two years after the trips took place. The senator's office is calling the late reimbursement an "oversight".

But it's those trips to the Dominican Republican that sparked allegations that Menendez was meeting up with prostitutes.
For more on this developing story, Susan Candiotti reports.
