Cory “Spartacus” Booker spent the first half of the circus that is the Kavanaugh confirmation process making a fool of himself and bragging about breaking Senate rules in beyond laughable fashion.
Now that we’re well in the thick the second half of said circus, which is more spectacularly ridiculous than anyone could have possibly imagined, Booker is getting slammed for his own drunken groping incident in 1992, and it’s not pretty.
Of course, unlike Kavanaugh, there’s no doubt that Booker engaged in this activity, as he fully admitted it in a college newspaper article he wrote during his time at Stanford.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The piece appeared in the Stanford Daily back in 1992, meant to describe his transformation from a teen who was “trotting around the bases and stealing second” to a young man described by his classmates as a “man-hater.”Trending:
However, the picture it presents of a young Booker isn’t exactly an agreeable one.
“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,” he wrote in the student-run newspaper.Advertisement - story continues below
“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,’” Booker wrote.
While he didn’t explain what “mark” meant, I think we can all be fairly certain what, precisely, he was talking about. In other words, after being told no, he tried again.
“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 continued.
Of course, this was all written by a pontificating young liberal who claimed he was trying to expose his own hypocrisy when it came to the treatment of women, but we are, naturally, expected to believe that Booker, who admitted to groping this girl drunkenly after being told “no” is washed white as snow, while Kavanaugh, who has been accused without evidence, is guilty as sin.
Naturally, reps for Booker were graceless when asked for comment:
“This disingenuous right-wing attack, which has circulated online and in partisan outlets for the past five years, rings hollow to anyone who reads the entirety of Senator Booker’s Stanford Daily column,” a Booker spokesperson said.
Ah, right. The old “right-wing conspiracy”, right?
