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

U.S. SenateAccording 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."Booker has been accused of ethical violations in leaking confidential information, which he boasted about, during the Kavanaugh smear attempt. The Senate rules violation carries a maximum penalty of expulsion from the Senate.
Newark mayorThe 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."
