Cory Booker Doesn't Want People Voting For Him Just Because They Think He's Straight

Turning rumors about his sexuality into a political opportunity


Twitter celebrity, start-up co-founder, Newark mayor, and New Jersey Senate candidate Cory Booker is attractive, outgoing, and once saved a woman from a burning building, yet the 44-year-old is unmarried and apparently without a girlfriend, which has led some people tospeculate that he is gay. Booker, who used to be homophobic but got over it in college, says he doesn't mind the rumors. Actually, he thinks they're kind of useful.
