Skip to comments.Cory's Booker of Lies

A few chapters back in the Cory Booker story, the dashing young mayor of Newark, New Jersey was actually dashing into a burning building to save a helpless woman.
Now here we are, a few plot twists later, and Cory Booker's halo is looking kind of mucky. Take those flirty tweets he sent to an impressively tattooed stripper... Did the public react to this naughty news with prudish gasps of disgust?
Nope. Instead, cynics, who were getting used to Booker's antics, pointed out he may have deployed those tweets to scotch rumors of certain other.... proclivities.
Now, really, tell me. How well is your campaign going when your best-case scenario is you really did mean to tweet that stripper?
It's getting hard not to notice that Cory Booker likes to lie. A lot. Which is why New Jersey's special Senate election on October 16 is tightening fast. Booker's lead over businessman Steve Lonegan has collapsed from a princely 30-point advantage to a mere 3. People are starting to whisper Booker may lose.
Let's start with the Great T-Bone Fantasia... T-Bone was baaaaad. T-Bone sold drugs and threatened to shoot Booker dead. But, wouldn't you know, T-Bone had a vulnerable side, too, sobbing out his heartrending story in Booker's car.
What drama! What inner-city realism! What a crock. T-Bone never existed, no matter how many times Booker told his made-up tales to enthralled audiences at Yale and other upscale venues.
And that teen gunshot victim who died operatically in Booker's arms? He died in the hospital...
But all this dying and shooting and sobbing and drug dealing has made the Ivy League-educated Booker into a big star on the speaking circuit, raking in piles of dough, which, by the way, he lied about, too.

Gosh! How does he get away with it?
Do you expect a white-bread, Ivy-League-educated reporter to actually go into the crappy parts of Newark to investigate this guy? That would mean, you know, leaving the United Airlines executive lounge at the airport and talking to people who are stuck living in Newark.
Do the reporters ever wonder WHY Booker doesn’t have any fundraisers IN Newark?
With Booker’s image unraveling, will he wind up being the sixth consecutive Newark mayor to wind up in prison?
