Newark, N.J., Mayor and U.S. Senate candidate Cory Booker has been Tweeting up a storm with a Portland, Oregon stripper, according to a new report.
Booker and Lynsie Lee have carried on a "relationship" for some time. He once Tweeted her, "The East Coast loves you, and by the East Coast, I mean me."
Lee Tweeted to Booker: "If you're POTUS I call dibs on First Lady."
Booker is a rising star in the Democratic party. His Senate campaign is being backed by Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Jerry Weintraub, among others.
The 44-year-old media darling has already been talked about as a Democratic presidential candidate in the 2016 election or further down the road.
He is also a longtime bachelor, making his Tweets with Lee ... slightly less bad? Not only is he single, this is not exactly Anthony Weiner type stuff.
Still, the fact that his Twitter pal Lynsie Lee posts lots of topless and bikini photos of herself online likely does not help his image ... right?
The idea of a single politician on a national scale - let alone one who cavorts with strippers - is not without precedent, but is certainly uncommon.
America has not had a bachelor president since
Bill Clinton James Buchanan. James Tyler, Woodrow Wilson and Grover Cleveland married while in office.
How will this impact Booker? You be the judge.
