Bob Menendez’s ex-girlfriend was involved with Jeffrey Epstein

 January 11, 2024

New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez made headlines last fall after he pleaded not guilty to federal bribery charges.

This week saw Menendez back in the news following a report that his ex-girlfriend was linked to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Gwendolyn Beck named in sworn deposition by former Epstein victim

According to the New York Post, 65-year-old Gwendolyn Beck is among those named in newly released court documents from a 2015 lawsuit.

The suit was filed by Virginia Giuffre against longtime Epstein girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell, who was accused of helping to abuse Giuffre along with other underage girls.

Maxwell was ultimately found guilty of federal sex trafficking charges and was sentenced to twenty years behind bars in 2022.

While giving a sworn deposition in 2016, Giuffre was provided with a list of individuals and then told to identify the ones she had not been trafficked to.

Beck was romantically linked to Sen. Menendez in 2010

Giuffre identified Beck, saying, "I wasn’t trafficked to her, she was just part of some of the trafficking." When pressed for details regarding Beck's activities, Giuffre replied that "[s]he was involved in some of the orgies."

"What gentlemen were involved in the orgies with you and Ms. Beck?" the attorney conducting the deposition went to ask. Giuffre replied, "As far as I can recall, Jeffrey Epstein."

The Post noted that while it is not clear when the sexual activity in question took place, Beck was romantically linked to Sen. Menendez in 2010, by which point Giuffre had already escaped Epstein's orbit and moved to Australia.

It also observed that Beck ran for Congress in 2014 as an independent candidate, with Arlington Now reporting that Epstein contributed $12,600 to her campaign.

Beck admitted to managing Epstein's money, claimed to have "knew him personally"

"I did call every billionaire I know to ask for campaign funds, and Mr. Epstein sent the donations," Beck told the website via email.

Beck explained that she managed Epstein's money during her time working at the investment firm Morgan Stanley, adding that she "knew him personally."

"While the press has tagged him 'a man of mystery' because they can’t explain how he made his money, it’s mostly a combination of real estate and complex derivatives," Beck went on to state.

The website Ballotpedia notes that Beck did not win the race in Virginia's 8th congressional district, finishing at fifth place behind the Democratic, Republican, Libertarian, and Green Party candidates.
