Bob Menendez said she was dead set against convicting the New Jersey Democrat and his co-defendant. “If I would have been there all the way to the end, it would have been not guilty," said Evelyn Arroyo-Maultsby, 61, of Hillside. "All the way to the end, not guilty.”But in what appears to be a stroke of bad luck for Menendez and his co-defendant Salomon Melgen, the U.S. district court judge overseeing the case dismissed Arroyo-Maultsby on Thursday so she could take a long-scheduled vacation.
