Sen. Bob Menendez, the son of Cuban immigrants who rose to become one of the highest-ranking Hispanic members of Congress, was charged Wednesday with accepting nearly $1 million worth of gifts and campaign contributions from a longtime friend in exchange for a stream of political favors on the donor’s behalf. A federal grand jury indictment accuses the New Jersey Democrat of using the power of his Senate seat to benefit Dr. Salomon Melgen, a wealthy Florida eye doctor who prosecutors say provided the senator with luxury vacations, airline travel, golf trips and tens of thousands of dollars in contributions to a legal defense fund. Menendez announced he will step down from his leadership post with the powerful Armed Services Committee.

Arkansas Gov. Hutchinson says he won’t sign his state’s Religious Freedom Law until there are changes to the bills language. The governor was originally expected to sign the law as is, but after backlash from businesses and gay rights groups he wants legislatures to either recall the proposal or include measures making it more similar to the federal religious freedom law signed in 1993. Earlier this week, Governor Mike Pence of Indiana made a similar statement after critics said his bill would openly sanction discrimination for gays and lesbians, and his legislature is still trying to figure things out.

The defense in the Boston Bombings case against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev came to a speedy conclusion Tuesday. They only used four witnesses, only six hours of testimony. When compared to the prosecution: 92 witnesses, three weeks of testimony. The defense’s only point, that his older brother Tamerlan was calling the shots. If that argument makes any impression with the jury, the defense hopes it will save their clients life. Closing arguments are scheduled for Monday.

Well, a lot has happened since the last ABC News-Washington Post Poll on the approval ratings of the president and Congress. 2015 started.

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence aggressively defended Indiana’s religious freedom law Tuesday but said he wants a bill on his desk by week’s end “making it clear the law does not allow businesses the right to deny services to anyone.” Whether he effectively quelled the swirl of criticism remains to be seen. Meanwhile, the state of Arkansas marked the occasion by passing their own “religious freedom” law, despite similar types of warnings and protestations from civil and business communities.
