New Jersey US Senate candidate Cory Booker is the latest politician to be caught up in some social media scandal, as he exchanged flirtatious text messages with a Portland stripper, who goes by the name ‘Lynsie Lee‘ on Twitter.
BuzzFeed reports she shared direct messages between her and the Newark mayor from February. Some people just have no shame. She’s looking for her 15 minutes of fame.
Cory Booker wrote: “And the East Coast loves you and by the East Coast, I mean me.” She replied, “Well now I’m blushing :).” He responded, “Its only fair.”
Of course, this pales in comparison to the Anthony Weiner scandal, but the right will have their usual freak-out. It would be really hypocritical if the right wingnuts did, since they forgave Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) for his scandal with the D.C. Madam, who killed herself. If Cory Booker is gay, maybe this is a great time to come out and put any simmering sexting scandals to rest. By the way, what’s a vegan strip club?
By the way, Lynsie Lee has ambitions on being called the ‘first lady’ if he ever becomes POTUS. Um, whatever.
@CoryBooker if you're ever POTUS I call dibs on First Lady.
