When accusing another of trying to force you to perform oral sex, as an anonymous gay man has accused Sen. Cory Booker of, choosing the name “Deep Throat” as your Twitter handle is suspect, as is an account of the alleged incident that could have been pulled from Penthouse Forum.
Not that it couldn’t be true.
The man tweeted a shocking, detailed description of how he was sexually assaulted by the New Jersey Democrat and potential 2020 presidential candidate back in 2014, saying he has “much more probative evidence” than Christine Blasey Ford did when she accused now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual abuse.
An appropriate comparison with the left having weaponized the #MeToo movement, making it a political tool for going after opponents, where anybody can be accused of committing sexually inappropriate acts with little corroborative evidence and the expectation of due process tossed out the window.
The man details how Booker, who was speaking at his workplace, pulled him back into the restroom and sexually assaulted him after he complimented the lawmaker, tweeting: “#CoryBooker Sexually Assaulted Me and why it won’t matter to the #metoo movement.”
“I stopped to use one of the building’s single-occupancy restrooms,” the letter began. “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,” the man continued. “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.”
The letter states that the man spoke with Harmeet Dhillon of the Dhillon Law Group, who is an RNC committee member.
“And in a refreshingly rare act of bipartisanship, she recommended I contact Ronan Farrow, the father of the modern #metoo movement himself,” he wrote.
According to the account, Farrow, who is also gay, has been slow in coming around to his story.
In a follow up tweet, the accuser responded to some of the concerns about his story, such as his chosen Twitter name:
While the presumption of innocence is paramount in our legal system — unless you’re a Republican-backed Supreme Court nominee — and there’s no way to know if the allegation is true, the man must remove the cloak of anonymity, putting a name and face to the charge, if he expects it to be taken seriously.
But the case serves as an example for Democrats like Booker, who was on the front line of the opposition to Kavanaugh, getting a taste of their own medicine.
One thing is certain, when applying the same arguments Democrats used in support of Ford, the accusation against Booker takes on a whole new light:
Why would this man lie?
What does he have to gain?
He sounds very credible.
If you don’t believe him you’re sexist.
Cory should resign.
Cory is guilty and needs to prove his innocence.
I believe him.
