Skip to comments.What makes Cory Booker's groping incident different than the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh

As Washington continues to play a game of wait and see on whether Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, will testify in Washington next week, an old-but-new-again incident involving a prominent Democratic senator -- and potential 2020 challenger to Trump -- has reemerged.
New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker wrote in the early 1990s -- while a student at Stanford -- about an incident on New Year's Eve 1984 (when he was 15) in which he groped a female friend's breast after the two of them had kissed.
"With the 'Top Gun' slogan ringing in my head, I slowly reached for her breast," Booker wrote of that night. "After having my hand pushed away once, I reached my 'mark.'" The point of Booker's column was how that moment, and his work on the issue after, had changed him -- and his views on women, consent and assault -- forever. "It was a wake-up call," Booker wrote in his Stanford column. "I will never be the same."

“D”. Yes, it is that simple.
Uhhhh .Booker’s is true and the accusations against Kavanaugh have been as disproven as possible. “as possible” because you can’t prove something didn’t occur if you don’t know when, or where, or who was involved.
One happened and one didn’t.
Groping while black. Simpler yet.
The main difference is that Booker’s a Democrat.
When it comes to Democrats..the left ALWAYS makes excuses for them..ALWAYS
Neither one happened. Booker never touched a woman in his life.
(I'm from New Jersey and I have doubts that Booker has touched very many female breasts, at least in the last 48 years (he's 49), but he claims that he did, unlike Kavanaugh.)
Predictably bone-headed (Can I still say that?!) editorial.
The falsely accused man in the incident that didn’t happen has impeccable character and integrity.
The man who DID grope is a vile, perverted, scoundrel Democrat.
Exactly. And now a second attempt at second base is rape? We can’t have this leftist crap in our lives. Booker is rumored to be a pervert. I don’t know but with McGreevy the rumors proved true.
‘The media don’t choose a side’ - Chris Cillizza.
He claims that the "groping incident" took place on New Year's Eve 1984 while the music from "Top Gun" was playing in his mind ... but "Top Gun" wasn't released until May of 1986.
His Stanford newspaper column was nothing more than a pathetic attempt to establish heterosexual creds for himself.
Booker showed interest in a female? I don’t think either incident happened.
You beat me to it.
