Cory Booker did nothing for Newark. Crime rate is as high as ever, High School drop out rates are still high. As an African American born in the area he is a disgrace. He should not be leaving behind an impoverished city where black youths have no path but to drugs and crime.
Celebrity yes. Don't know about the charisma. We all know he has been funded in the millions by Opra Winfry.
Shame Cory Booker you should spend more time in Newark fighting to improve the lives of people in that inner city. Boooo

Newark is burning in ruins and Coorey 'bigmoney' Booker the cooker is about to move to Washington Senate and leave you all behind. The problems facing Newark are massive and terrifying for local residents and even others looking at the situation. Corey Booker is not black so stop voting for him just because he a bit darker than white. You guys are too predictable hispanic/black voters must vote for anyone with color other than white because??? Street cred? Feel good about your hood. Booker doesn't give two shits about Newark, never lived there, flys around country making money unrelated to the city he represents. Sucks oprahs dick twice a week. Oh he a great man of color who does??? What did he do?? Oh you think he black ok! You guys are easily fooled and maybe why Newark stuck in cycle of violence and ignorance.
