Cory Booker Says He’s Heterosexual Amid Speculation of 2020 Presidential Bid

Published

on

A New Jersey Democrat who is considering a 2020 presidential told the Philadelphia Inquirer that he is heterosexual during an interview last week.

“I’m heterosexual,” Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.)  reportedly said. ”Every candidate should run on their authentic self, tell their truth, and more importantly, or mostly importantly, talk about their vision for the country.

According to the magazine, his status as a 49-year-old single man has raised questions about his sexuality. The broader context of the interview was Booker’s potential run for president in the next election. The magazine noted that America has not elected an unmarried president since 1884.

“America is accustomed to not just a chief executive who leads the government, but a First Family that rounds out the ceremonial and symbolic aspects of the job,” the magazine said. “Spouses and their children can become national figures in their own rights, and often soften a candidate’s image.”

In past election campaigns, Booker’s mother and brother have played a prominent role usually filled by a spouse.

Early polling numbers among Democratic voters indicate that Booker is tracking well behind several other candidates. Big League Politics has reported that failed U.S. Senate candidate from Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, along with former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) appear to be the favorites so far. Among the less popular candidates are Booker and Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).

Former San Antonio Mayor and Obama Administration housing czar Julian Castro has formed an exploratory committee for a presidential run, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) has said that she, too, is considering running.

For now, Booker has not officially committed to running for the nation’s highest office, and instead he is focused on relaxing for the Christmas holiday with his family and friends.

“I have a pause during the holidays which is going to be a really great time to meet with family and friends and really start to put some focus on whether to run for president or not,” he said.

DECISIVE VICTORY: Arizona Judge Rules State Senate Can Review 2.1 Million Ballots & Voting Software in Maricopa County

Published

on

Friday morning, a Maricopa County Superior Court Judge gave the Trump Campaign and overall MAGA movement another small yet decisive victory in their ongoing legal battle in the 2020 Presidential Election. According to an article by the Associated Press, Judge Timothy Thomason ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million voter ballots and voting machines from Maricopa County, Arizona’s most popular county which flipped Arizona from Trump to Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported on Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors and their state of perpetual non-compliance with legally issued subpoenas by the Arizona Senate. It appears that today, Judge Thomason has officially ordered that non-compliance to end, and Maricopa County must allow the Senate to proceed with their investigation.

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has previously argued that ballots should remain secret and not open to investigation. They see the subpoenas issued by the Senate as illegitimate and that they have no right to access the county’s voting hardware. In turn, the Senate and their legal team have argued that the constitution clearly gives the Legislature the responsibility to enforce the law and to maintain election integrity. It is the Senate’s role to ensure that Arizona elections are free, fair, and pure.

Judge Thomason seemingly agrees with the Senate on all fronts and has called the subpoenas “legal and enforceable”. In his ruling, the Judge also stated:

“There is no question that the Senators have the power to issue legislative subpoenas. The Subpoenas comply with the statutory requirements for legislative subpoenas. The Senate also has broad constitutional power to oversee elections. The Arizona legislature clearly has the power to investigate and examine election reform matters. Accordingly, the Senators have the power to subpoena material as part of an inquiry into election reform measures. As such, the Subpoenas have a proper legislative purpose. The Subpoenas also do not violate separation of powers principles. Production of the subpoenaed materials would not violate confidentiality laws.”

The rest of Judge’s Thomason’s ruling can be found here.

“We are thrilled and grateful that the judge was able to see the big picture in this whole issue,” said Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann. “That this has never been about overturning an election. This has always been 100% about voter integrity and finding the answers to all of our voters’ questions about the safety and security and validity of the Arizona electoral system.”

Maricopa County has been accused of committing mass voter fraud, discriminating against Trump voters and using hardware to manipulate votes for Joe Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported that former Maricopa County Treasurer Royce Flora had resigned from his office in disgust with the complacency Maricopa County played in the election fraud. Flora said that he plans to continue to push recall efforts against the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for what he sees as crimes against the people of Maricopa County.
