Cory “The Crooker” Booker
September 7, 2013
We have to take notice of politicians, such as Cory Booker, who know how to make hay while the sun shines.
Cory Booker pocketed $689,500 in payouts from his former law firm while he served as Newark’s mayor and the firm pulled down millions in government contracts, he revealed Friday. [bold added]
Booker, the front-runner in the race for New Jersey’s US Senate seat, received the payments in annual allotments from 2007 to 2011. At the same time, the Trenk DiPasquale law firm held lucrative contracts with several local government agencies over which the mayor had influence — raking in more than $2 million in fees, records show.
Oh ya, he’ll fit right in in Washington especially coming from New Jersey. If you reside in New Jersey, drop a line if you know of an honest politician there. How much would you like to be that Booker’s response will be that he should get credit for finally admitting to being a crook?
