Democratic United States Senator from New Jersey, Cory Booker, recently came out and called for President Donald Trump to resign after sexual abuse allegations were made against him during the 2016 Presidential Election. At a rally that took place in Alabama, Booker stated before today’s Senate special election, “I just watched Al Franken do the honorable thing and resign. My question is- why isn’t Donald Trump doing the same thing? Who has more serious allegations against him, with more women who have come forward?”
There has been some very serious information that has resurfaced now, and this information shows Booker publicly admitting that he sexually assaulted a woman back in 1992. Talk about hypocritical. And this is the same man who claimed that Judge Roy Moore, who was also accused of sexual assault, would not be accepted in the United States Senate due to the allegations against him. It seems pretty interesting that Booker would condemn a man who is running against Doug Jones, who he has been personally campaigning for. What a hypocrite!
GotNews.com reported that Booker used to write a column for the Stanford Daily during his time as a masters student while attending Stanford University. The op-ed was titled “So Much for Stealing Second.” It displays Booker telling a very personal story in hopes of it becoming the “most powerful way to make a point” and “to make people think.” Booker stated, “When I hesitated in writing this column, I realized I was basking in hypocrisy. So I chose to write and risk.”
Booker’s column continues on to describe the now U.S. Senator on New Year’s Eve back in 1984 in a situation in which he grabbed a friend’s breast while on a bed without her permission to do so. Booker was 15-years-old at the time of the assault, and explained, “I remember debating my next ‘move’ as if it were a chess game.”
What a sick human being. This is coming from the same man who condemned our POTUS as well as Roy Moore for simply having been accused of similar situations. There was never any real evidence of them committing the crime, where as Booker actually admitted it!
Booker thought back and write, “I slowly reached for her breast. After having my hand pushed away once, I reached my ‘mark.’”
The story Booker recalled and wrote proves that Booker grabbed a woman’s breast without her consent to do so. That certainly sounds like sexual assault to me. What makes the situation even worse is that the woman was so drunk that she didn’t even know what was going on.
Got News reported, “Booker used the rest of the piece to offer the rest of the Stanford community advice on sexual attitudes, consent, rape, and gender dynamics.” We have to keep in mind, however, that Booker openly admitted to abusing a woman who was too drunk to consent. This kind of treatment of women is totally unacceptable, especially coming from someone who condemns others for the same behavior.
This man truly needs to resign.
