Since the Feinstein stall on the Kavanaugh case, the appointment for our new justice has been put in jeopardy. Democrats are claiming that an investigation should be opened into Kavanaugh with the allegation on the table. But some of the most hypocritical Democrats are coming forward to push for this FBI investigation. Hillary came forward earlier this week and Senator Corey Cooker has also been a serious advocate for the investigation. We all know why Hillary should never open her mouth in this scenario. But it has come to light that Booker is in the same boat.
Back in 1992, Booker wrote in the Stanford Daily and in an article confessed to groping a friend.
“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,” Booker wrote in the student-run Stanford Daily newspaper in 1992.
“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,’” he continued, without explaining what he meant by “mark.”
Later that year he wrote the following in regards to this incident.
“But by my second column, as I raised my noble pen to address the issue of date rape, I realized that the person holding it wasn’t so noble after all,” he wrote. “With this issue as with so many others, a dash of sincere introspection has revealed to me a dangerous gap — a gap between my beliefs and my actions.”
So Booker admits that he was party to taking advantage of a drunk friend. To the point that he feels he was practically guilty of date rape himself. So does this mean Booker is going to step down? He wants Kavanaugh on a mere allegation, whereas he admittedly took advantage of a drunk female friend.
Booker responded to the resurfacing of his article.
“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 spokesperson for the senator said in a statement to Fox News.
“The column is in fact a direct criticism of a culture that encourages young men to take advantage of women — written at a time when so candidly discussing these issues was rare — and speaks to the impact Senator Booker’s experience working to help rape and sexual assault survivors as a college peer counselor had on him.”
If you read the original article he was a 15-year old that seems to be told by his peers that “Liquor will get her to bed quicker.” So is he saying that he encouraged this friend to drink and lower her inhibitions? According to the follow-up article, he seems to feel guilty about his New Years groping since he knows he was in the wrong. I read the article and this is not Books telling a fictitious hypothetical story. He is admitting to doing the very thing Kavanaugh is being accused of, but only to a drunken friend.
