An anonymous Twitter user has accused New Jersey Senator, Cory Booker. of an alleged gay #MeToo sexual assault that took place in a bathroom years ago and his “story” is beginning to make the rounds of the extreme right-wing-nut websites.
The alleged “gay man” who wants to remain anonymous of course describes himself as a “liberal Democrat” and accuses Booker of sexually assaulting him in 2014.
The supposed “victim” penned a lengthy open letter that was posted on Twitter. (On a newly created account for this accusation named @TheeDeepThroat) in which he describes the assault that occurred in a bathroom following a meeting at his workplace, in Washington, DC where the two met.
I stopped to use one of the building’s single-occupancy restrooms. Upon washing my hands prior to leaving, I hear 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. 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 pulled me into the bathroom, 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.
The victim then claims he hired a lawyer by the name of Harmeet Dhillon of the Dhillon Law Group, who of course is also a member of the Republican National Committee.
The man also claims that had reached out to Rowan Farrow on Oct. 7 but did not hear back from the reporter for four days. He said he responded to Farrow with availability between Oct. 12 – 15 for an interview but did not hear back from the reporter Oct. 20, the day he published his his accusation on Twitter.
Co-incidentally this happens at a time when Booker is considered a leading contender for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020.
Sure sounds like a set-up to me.
