Cory Booker admitted to sexually assaulting a woman in 1992, writing a book about how when he was a teen he was with a girl on a bed kissing and he attempted to touch her breast, she pushed his hand away and then he tried again.
According to his own rhetoric used during the Kavanaugh nomination proceedings last year, that should immediately disqualify him from your vote. Senator Booker is a Democratic Senator from New Jersey, and if that does not throw you off, then perhaps his ” I am Spartacus” moment will, he threatened to release what he said were sensitive documents, (also during the Kavanaugh hearing,) to the public without first clearing them, it was later confirmed that those documents were indeed not sensitive and could have and were released anyway.
Such grandstanding is commonplace within the Democratic Party, with each person attempting to upstage the others, pushing the party further and further left. Making centrist and possible 2020 Presidential Candidate and CEO of Starbucks Howard Shultz look appealing to most Democrats. With people like Elizabeth Warren and Kirsten Gillibrand also announcing their candidacies recently, it is shaping up to be a full field of lefties for sure.
