Hugin’s wrong on Booker, Menendez says

Senior Senator calls GOP threats against Booker ‘truly outrageous’

By David Wildstein, September 10 2018 2:28 pm

Bob Menendez strongly supports colleague Cory Booker’s decision to released confidential documents last week during the U.S. Senate confirmation hearing of Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee for Associate Justice of the U. Supreme Court.

He pushed back on comments made by his Republican opponent, Bob Hugin, that Booker was “grandstanding about something that was already going to be available.”

“I don’t know what there is to investigate,” Hugin said.  “He was grandstanding about something that was already going to be available.”

“Grandstanding is claiming you’re for a women’s right to choose, for LGBTQ rights, and the rights of immigrants, and then give a half million dollars to a right wing organization that opposes all those views and supports a right wing judge like Kavanaugh, Menendez told the New Jersey Globe following a joint press conference he held with Booker challenging Kavanaugh’s record on civil rights.

Menendez said that calls by some GOP Senators to file an ethics complaint against Booker “pretty outrageous.”

Rep. Frank Pallone (D-Long Branch) called Booker’s actions courageous.

“He is truly a hero,” Pallone said.
