Did Cory Booker really pursue a gay man into the bathroom and demand oral sex? That is the allegation that has surfaced via an anonymous Twitter account.

Here is the story:

Here is a description of the incident as I described it to a lawyer: I stopped to use one of the building’s single-occupancy restrooms. Upon washing my hands prior to leaving, I heard knocking on the door. When it comes to these restrooms it is customary to knock first in case someone is using it, even though there is an inner lock. When I opened the door, Mr. Booker was there. He smiled and very gregariously said “Hey!” We engaged in some brief idle chitchat in the entryway and then he asked me to speak in private. What happened next, happened so fast that it was hard for me to comprehend what was going on. It was one of those surreal moments where what was happening was such a deviation and such a perversion of one’s natural daily routine that I hardly knew how to react. He pulled me into the restroom, albeit not too forcefully and slowly pushed me against the restroom wall. He said that “Being a hero was a serious turn-on”. He continued, “The Senate appreciates fine citizens like you. Especially this Senator.” He then put his left hand on my groin, over my jeans and began to rub. I seem to remember saying something like “What is happening?” It was a bit like having vertigo. He then used his other hand to grab my left hand with his right and pulled it over to touch him. At the same time, he disengaged from rubbing me and used his left hand to push me to my knees from my shoulder for what was clearly a move to have me perform oral sex on him. At that point, I pulled away quite violently and told him I had to go. I did not see him again before he left.

While it is anonymous and there is no proof, we shouldn’t be hasty in dismissing it. Let’s not forget that the FBI was called out to investigate allegations against Brett Kavanaugh that no only had no evidence but were contradicted by the evidence that was available.

Let’s put this all in context.

We know Cory Booker has a history of sexual assault.

Cory Booker has hinted that he is gay (NTTAWWT):

Booker has focused on gay stuff in both Mike Pompeo’s and Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing (NTTAWWT).

The complainant says he told his story to Ronan Farrow who showed no interest in the story (of course not, it involved a prominent black, liberal politician and possible presidential candidate).

In the past I might have been reticent to post on this but if there is one takeaway I gathered from the Brett Kavanaugh hearing it is that all accusations against public figures are true until proven otherwise–that because this is job interview not a court of law, that the candidate has to disprove all allegations against him–and I also learned that denying an allegation is de facto proof of guilt. When coupled with the mantra of the Democrats since at least the Clarence Thomas hearing an the October Surprise investigation, that is, it isn’t the quality of the evidence but the seriousness of the charge the requires an investigation, I think I am on very safe ground in demanding that the FBI conduct an immediate and thorough investigation…and take as long as they want.
