A sign of the trending times: popular Democratic Newark Mayor and U.S. Senate candidate Cory Booker told the Washington Post that he doesn’t really care if people think he’s gay. From the Post:
It is to his “great dismay” that “I have not settled down with a life partner.” He tells a story about how, early in his tenure as mayor, as murders continued to mount, he ran bawling past the places where Newarkers had been shot. He called a pastor friend and told him how broken he felt. At the end of the conversation, Booker expected some spiritual advice.
“You need to get married,” the pastor said.
