An anonymous Twitter user has accused Sen. Cory Booker of following him into the men’s room on Capitol Hill, groping him, and propositioning him for a homosexual encounter. While there is no corroboration for the man’s claims (yet), the fact that Booker has been accused is, by Democratic Party standards, reason enough to question his fitness for office, hold an FBI investigation, and demand that he apologize to the country for something he may or may not have done.
“Here is a description of the incident as I described it to a lawyer,” read the tweet. “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,” the anonymous accuser wrote.
“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 continued. “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.”
Now, this sounds like bad fiction, but who are we to judge? We were just told, repeatedly and virulently, that we must stand with and BELIEVE ALL SURVIVORS, right? And if we’re not mistaken, Sen. Booker was at the forefront of those Democrats who tried and convicted Brett Kavanaugh in the public arena.
So all we know is, it’s only fair that the same logic be applied to him.
The accuser in this case says he brought his story to Ronan Farrow of the New Yorker, but there was no interest.
Color us shocked.
