New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker is facing accusations of hypocrisy over his calls to delay the confirmation vote of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh amid sexual misconduct allegations, as he once admitted groping a friend without her consent in high school.
The senator, who urged the Senate Judiciary Committee to first let the FBI conduct an investigation after California professor Christine Blasey Ford accused the high court nominee of sexual assault over 35 years ago, once wrote an article detailing an instance where he groped a female friend.

“New Year's Eve 1984 I will never forget. I was 15. As the ball dropped, I leaned over to hug a friend and she met me instead with an overwhelming kiss. As we fumbled upon the bed, I remember debating my next 'move' as if it were a chess game,” Booker wrote in the student-run Stanford Daily newspaper in 1992.
“With the 'Top Gun' slogan ringing in my head, I slowly reached for her breast. After having my hand pushed away once, I reached my 'mark,’” he continued, without explaining what he meant by “mark.”
“Our groping ended soon and while no 'relationship' ensued, a friendship did. You see, the next week in school she told me that she was drunk that night and didn't really know what she was doing,” he added.

Not that I care much for politics anymore(thanks ATS) but at least he had them balls to admit he did wrong. And yes he should step down. But based on the second post in this thread he will be looked at like the devil just because of people lunacy against the DNC. When in reality and I know you know this, this crap happens across all parties.
I swear ATS has lost its touch. I am about ready to be done here.

And all Mr. Kavanaugh has is an over thirty year old accusation against him with no proof that he did anything wrong.
And yea, its all popular to say the Republicans are just as bad, but mostly what I see from the Republicans is nothing much except cowardice. They refuse to stand up to these vile clowns.
