Cory Booker

Cory Booker, a far-leftist, is the junior United States Senator from New Jersey, having been elected in a special election on October 16, 2013, to fill the seat vacated by the death of Sen. Frank Lautenberg. He previously served as mayor of Newark, New Jersey. Booker announced he would run for president in the 2020 presidential election.[1]

As Newark mayor Booker was noted for refusing to allow any straight marriages until gay marriage was "legalized;"[2] Booker adamantly opposed a democratic referendum on the issue.[3] After a victory in the courts, then Senator-elect Booker presided over New Jersey's first gay wedding.[4]

Booker has shown hostility toward Christianity as a Senator and pushed for religious tests on nominees.[5]

Booker, a Democrat, has been beset by sexual predator allegations.

Sexual predator allegations

While being a longtime advocate of gay rights and rumored to be gay himself,[6][7] Booker has been accused of a sexual assault on a gay man.

Admits to groping a child

In a 1992 article in The Stanford Daily, Booker admitted to sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl at a drinking party.[8][9][10] Liberals and Democrats had no problem with this admission, in contrast to their reactions to unsubstantiated allegations made against conservatives (see Left-wing war on women and Kavanaugh smear). Booker later admitted that the sexual assault revelations meant nothing to him.[11]

Homosexual rape allegations

Cory Booker has been accused of a violent sexual assault on a man.[12] Senators have called for credible allegations to be investigated.[13] The accuser is represented by Attorney Harmeet Dhillon,[14] and has reached out to the investigative journalist Ronan Farrow. Farrow has been a major force popularizing the MeToo movement.[15]

U.S. Senate

According to Ballotpedia,
"during his 2013 run for U.S. Senate.... along with some of Booker's other comments, led to various rumors speculating that he may have been homosexual. However, rather than dispelling these rumors, Booker seemed to welcome them, stating that sexuality should not be important anyway. In one interview with The Washington Post, Booker explained, "And people who think I'm gay, some part of me thinks it's wonderful. Because I want to challenge people on their homophobia. I love seeing on Twitter when someone says I'm gay, and I say, 'So what does it matter if I am? So be it. I hope you are not voting for me because you are making the presumption that I'm straight.'"... After Booker admitted to an interviewer from the magazine, Du Jour, that he enjoyed manicures and pedicures... Booker explained "It's this guilty pleasure I have. Look, manis are good, but pedis — there's something ... transformative."[16]
Booker has been accused of ethical violations in leaking confidential information, which he boasted about,[17] during the Kavanaugh smear attempt. The Senate rules violation carries a maximum penalty of expulsion from the Senate.

War on Cow Flatulence

Main article: War on Cow Flatulence
Booker compares regulating bovine flatulence to defeating Nazism and the moon landing.[18] Booker is an enthusiastic supporter of the Green New Deal, which states an objective of "net-zero greenhouse gas emissions" through legislation to "get rid of farting cows."[19] In his crusade against cow flatulence, Booker claims "this planet simply can’t sustain" people eating meat.[20] Booker told VegNews:
"You see the planet earth moving towards what is the Standard American Diet. We've seen this massive increase in consumption of meat."
Booker found the science to support his confirmation bias:
"I found the data that began to reaffirm my vegetarianism. In fact, it led me to more about our environment and cruelty to animals. I began saying I was a vegetarian because, for me, it was the best way to live in accordance to the ideals and values that I have."
Booker said he became a vegan when he realized that eating eggs "didn't align with my spirit."[21]

Newark mayor

The Daily Beast reported
"under Booker’s watch—or, more likely, because he was not watching—corruption ran rampant at a publicly funded water-treatment and reservoir-management agency, where Booker’s former law partner served as counsel. And speaking of his former law career: Despite having resigned from his law firm once entering the mayor’s office, Booker received annual payments until 2011, during which time the firm was profiting handsomely off of Brick City. That would be the Brick City that Booker professed to love with the fire of a thousand suns, but did little to fundamentally change. Murder, violent crime, unemployment, and taxes all rose dramatically under his stewardship."[22]
