It’s been long rumored that New Jersey Mayor and Senate hopeful Cory Cooker is gay, and is openly so withing the ranks of his closest friends but Booker is sidestepping any questions relating to his sexuality. There are members of congress that are openly gay and serving liberal and moderate districts proudly and without incident. It seems as though Booker is either standing on principle and sticking to the issues or even more likely eyeing a bigger prize…The Presidency! Although the country has already elected it’s first African-American president, Barack Obama’s presidency has been filled with hateful innuendo and openly racist chatter from the Right. It seems to me that Cory might be more worried about if the United States can handle a President who is both Black AND Gay.
