Could Cory Booker Do Better than @LynseeLee and Did He Lose Your Vote? [POLL/NSFW]
Cory Booker is dabbling in an online flirtation with a 'stripper model weirdo' from Oregon. Is he not fit for the office of Senator?
I will not be the first to cast the stone at Cory Booker.
His choice to carry on a twitter conversation can be construed in a number of ways.
1) He’s not married, so what’s the big deal
2) Perhaps we can put to rest the talk about his supposedly being gay – for what it’s worth
3) He didn’t send a selfie of his junk to her – again, as far as we know
4) He likes the “skank-ho” look
Which brings me to ask the following?
I’ll give you this, and I brought it up on the show the other night. There’s something hot about a woman with tattoos. And @LynseeLee has plenty of them, all in strategic places.
But you’d think a man who’s as well-heeled as Booker would have better taste.
Alas poor Cory, we thought we knew ye well!
The other part of this is: would this affect your vote were it to be held today?
If you hit the link, just remember that as the pictures of @LynseeLee are pixelated, still don’t take a chance. They may be not safe for work!
Cory Booker has exchanged private tweets with a Portland, Oregon stripper who admits to having a “slight crush” on the Newark mayor and candidate for U.S. Senate.
Buzz Feed (NOT SAFE FOR WORK) was the first to report that Lynsie Lee,25 has exchanged flirty tweets with Booker after they both appeared in Follow Friday, a film about Twitter in 2012.
According to her Twitter profile (NOT SAFE FOR WORK) she is a stripper at Casa Diablo, a Portland, Oregon strip club that calls itself the world’s first vegan strip according to the New York Times. Lee describes herself as a “stripper model weirdo.”
“@CoryBooker you’re welcome to come stay in my bedroom if your home was affected by the hurricane . . . ” Lee tweeted in October, after Hurricane Sandy. She also got a post card from Booker, who is not married, and said it was “going under my pillow for later.”
At one point Booker declared his “love” for Lee.
After the tweets became public, Lee on her Twitter profile (NOT SAFE FOR WORK) called the story “hilarious” but happy that “great pictures” of her were being used in the news coverage. Lee said the tweets took place a year ago and that “I didn’t even know it was a thing until reporters called me.” She also joked, “Does this mean I need to wear a flag pin when I strip tonight?
“I think it’s pretty well known that the mayor talks with people from all walks of life on Twitter. There have been a couple of stories about that over the years,” Booker spokesman Kevin Griffis responded to the report. “the most shocking part of this story was learning there is a vegan strip club in Portland.”
Booker, who has over 1.4 million followers on his Twitter account, manages his own Twitter account that he is always using to talk with Newark residents about problems and about his own day-to-day activity with tweets and pictures. He once said that he can travel and still do his job thanks to his Twitter account.
The 43-year-old’s sexual orientation has also also come under questioning for not giving a direct reply to the question. “The question really should not be whether I’m gay or straight,” responded Booker. “The question should be why the heck are you asking the question in the first place?” Booker said to MSNBC’s Chris Hayes.
So first to answer the question as to whether it would affect my vote, I’d probably go, “not in the least!”
But do I think he can do better?
Well, whatever flips your switch!”
