A former girlfriend of disgraced New Jersey senator Bob Menendez was accused by Virginia Giuffre of participating in orgies with her and Jeffrey Epstein, newly-unsealed court documents reveal.

Gwendolyn Beck, now 65, ran for Congress in 2014 as an independent representing Arlington, Virginia, but had long been known as an associate of Epstein’s.

She was photographed in 1995 with Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell at Mar-a-Lago in 1995, and five years later, was back at Mar-a-Lago with Prince Andrew and Melania Knauss, Donald Trump‘s girlfriend.

She had met Prince Andrew the year before: in 1999, she spent time with him on Epstein’s Caribbean island, and then flew back with Andrew and several others to Palm Beach, Florida.

At the time, according to her LinkedIn, she was the vice president of investments for Morgan Stanley – one of Epstein’s banks.

In January 2016, Virginia Giuffre – who had been recruited by Maxwell to work for Epstein in 2000, and was taking legal action after years of sexual abuse by the pedophile financier – sat for a deposition.

The transcript was published on Tuesday.

The lawyer provides Giuffre with a list of names, and asks which of those she was not sexually trafficked to.

‘Number 7, Gwendolyn Beck,’ she said.

‘I wasn’t trafficked to her. She was just a part of some of the trafficking.’

The lawyer asks what her involvement was.

‘She was involved in some of the orgies,’ Giuffre replies.

Asked by the lawyer ‘what gentlemen were involved in the orgies with you and Ms. Beck,’ Giuffre replies: ‘As far as I can recall Jeffrey Epstein.’

Beck has not responded to DailyMail.com’s request for comment.

By May 2010, Beck was dating New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez, and was photographed dining with him in the Dominican Republic.

The photos were used in Menendez’s 2015 corruption trial.

Beck also accompanied Menendez to a State Dinner, hosted in honor of the president of Mexico by Barack and Michelle Obama. 

It’s unclear when their relationship ended. Last year, Menendez was charged in connection to a bribery case. He has denied the allegations and remains in office. 

Beck in 2014 ran for Congress on a platform of being ‘fiscally responsible, socially inclusive’ and in favor of a ‘strong national defense.’

She wrote in an Arlington Now statement: ‘As a business woman, I have had two successful careers, one in the financial industry and one in tourism.

‘I rose to Manager of National Sales at Eastern Airlines, and when they ceased operations, moved into Finance in U.S. Government Debt — I understand how our debt works.

‘I’ve written a consumer financial education book and appeared on PBS and Lifetime. I volunteer for the Arlington Agency on Aging, am on the Board of Directors for ‘Ladies America’ and ‘We Will Survive Cancer.”

She said she was ‘a first-generation American on my mother’s side, and about fifth-generation American on my father’s side.’

She won 5,420 votes, securing 2.7 percent of the vote. The seat was won by Democrat Don Beyer, with 128,102 votes – 31.1 percent.

Her campaign was boosted by a $12,600 donation from Epstein – his only political donation of 2014, according to Arlington Now.

She defended the donation from the pedophile, who by then had been convicted of sex with minors and spent time in a Florida jail.

‘I did call every billionaire I know to ask for campaign funds, and Mr. Epstein sent the donations,’ Beck said via email.

‘I haven’t spoken with him personally in years. During my years at Morgan Stanley (started in 1995), I managed a portion of his investment funds (about $65 million), and 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 continued: ‘At the time, he had a girlfriend he was very close to, and was a hardworking, thoughtful man (he comes from a poor background and made a lot of money really fast).

‘I think he went off the deep end when she left (I left Morgan Stanley by this time and had no relationship with them), and got involved in very bad behaviors which he’s sought therapy for and paid his time in jail.’

She said she accepted his donation out of ‘forgiveness’.

‘I am deeply opposed [to] and shocked by his behavior, but he has paid his debt to society,’ she told the paper.

‘Although humanly flawed, he can be a great asset to our nation because he understands finance on a level most people can’t comprehend.’
