Today on Facebook:
GA can confirm that U.S. Senator Cory Booker is NOT going to the advertised "Romano2017" fundraiser.
In fact, it is not clear whether or not Booker ever knew of the event.
All GA can tell you is that I heard that Freeholder Anthony "Stick" Romano was advertising Booker's appearance at his November 21 fundraiser. Freeholder Romano alleged that Senator Booker would appear as a"special guest speaker."
Why would he (Booker) would be a special guest for Mayor Zimmer's likely opponent in 2017? And if not her opponent, Romano represents an anti-Zimmer political faction who opposes her Reform administration, and works to elect loyalists to unseat her allies.
GA asked around about why Booker had decided to appear for "Romano2017."
Well, the answer came back today like a bad news boomerang- WHACK!
Stick, are you okay?
"NOT TRUE... I can confirm 100% that Booker is NOT going ."
Folks, you can take that one to the bank.
I have to believe that Freeholder Romano was tricked by a Cory Booker impersonator, or else it was an innocent mix-up.
Anyway, there's plenty of time to book another special guest or legendary actress.
