Democrats want to try to derail Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation with allegations from 35 years ago despite all the questions and problems with the accusation. This despite the fact that they don’t seem to give a rap about all the Democrats recently accused of assault or harassment, with evidence, including Keith Ellison, John Conyers and Al Franken. But turns out that one name who featured prominently in attacks on Kavanaugh during the hearing and who thinks he has a chance at the 2020 Democratic nomination has some issues of his own in his past.
Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) who was infamously caught lying during the Kavanaugh hearing is that guy with the past. Booker claimed he was having a “Spartacus moment” when he said he would reveal confidential emails showing Brett Kavanaugh related to racial profiling.
Except it turned out he knew he had permission to release the emails before he made that grandstanding play and the emails turned out to prove that Kavanaugh was AGAINST racial profiling.
Booker even got called out by media on CNN and MSNBC which shows you how bad his disastrous turn was.
He has now urging the Committee to let the FBI conduct an investigation into the 35-year-old claims of Christine Blasey Ford against Brett Kavanaugh.
Turns out Booker wrote a story in the Stanford Daily in 1992 where he talks about groping a female friend without her permission eight years before when he was 15.
From Fox News:
New Year’s Eve 1984 I will never forget. I was 15. As the ball dropped, I leaned over to hug a friend and she met me instead with an overwhelming kiss. As we fumbled upon the bed, I remember debating my next ‘move’ as if it were a chess game,” Booker wrote in the student-run Stanford Daily newspaper in 1992.
“With the ‘Top Gun’ slogan ringing in my head, I slowly reached for her breast. After having my hand pushed away once, I reached my ‘mark,’” he continued, without explaining what he meant by “mark.”
“Our groping ended soon and while no ‘relationship’ ensued, a friendship did. You see, the next week in school she told me that she was drunk that night and didn’t really know what she was doing,” he added.
Bed, groping, party. Check, check and check.
He later wrote another article about the first article which he said related to “date rape” and said there was a difference between his beliefs and his actions. His point in writing the article was to show how he had evolved.
Paul Mulshine, a columnist for the liberal Star-Ledger, the largest newspaper in New Jersey, chided Booker saying his own past should make him not want to rush to judgment on the Kavanaugh.
“Based on that Stanford Daily column, Booker should be giving Kavanaugh the benefit of the doubt as well,” Mulshine said.
Booker’s office was infuriated and claimed the resurfacing of the story was a “disingenuous right-wing attack,” despite the fact that the Star-Ledger isn’t right wing and the description of the event is from Booker himself.
According to the Free Beacon, on Wednesday, Booker said it would be “irresponsible” of him not to consider running for president. Because Lord knows, Americans couldn’t live without his grandstanding. He said in the interview, “Of course the presidency will be something I consider. It would be irresponsible not to,” Booker told New York Magazine.
Oh, joy. Look forward to him explaining how his imaginary friend “T-bone” was just a “right-wing attack” too.
