Cory Booker’s cam­paign­ing

I see where Se­na­tor Booker is say­ing he was a big city mayor which qual­i­fies him to be pres­i­dent? Well Se­na­tor Booker, please ex­plain why mil­lions of dol­lars for Ne­wark’s ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem dis­ap­peared dur­ing your time as Ne­wark mayor? I think you should re­sign as a se­na­tor since you will be spend­ing all your time to cam­paign­ing for pres­i­dent. And since you’ll be spend­ing all this time cam­paign­ing you will not be able to rep­re­sent New Jer­sey in the Se­nate, so I think it’s time for you to re­sign. — A reader

It’s funny to me to see Repub­li­cans all over NJ say­ing this, but none of them asked for Christie to re­sign when he was run­ning for Pres­i­dent or when he quit the race and spent al­most as much time out cam­paign­ing for Trump. I do think there need to be rules about how much time is spent on cam­paigns though.

This is in ref­er­ence to Thurs­days front page Re­turn of the King. Some­one should have vet­ted this ar­ti­cle and pic­ture be­fore they put it on the front page and em­bar­rassed this en­tire kids fam­ily be­cause the Six­ers re­leased him less than 24 hours af­ter you ran that ar­ti­cle and pic­ture. Okay. Just want to let you know I feel re­ally bad for the kid and his fam­ily cuz I’m sure they’re em­bar­rassed by it all. — A reader

Well at the time that story and cover were sent to the presses, he was a Sixer. The team was putting out state­ments wel­com­ing him to the Six­ers, It seems that he fell vic­tim of the trans­ac­tional na­ture of play­ing in pro­fes­sional sports. If Malachi Richard­son knew about it in ad­vance, he would not have been able to tell us that. — Ed Note
