Steve Lonegan's Top Aide Calls Cory Booker 'Weird', 'Strange' and 'Gay'


It appears Steve Lonegan, the Republican Senate hopeful from New Jersey, is employing some world-class jackhole in a key position. Senior staffer and key strategist Rick Shaftan is out there shouting profanity-laced bigoted bullshit about his bosses Democratic opponent Cory Booker.

Shaftan thinks Lonegan’s slight raise in the polls is attributed to Booker’s “strange” “gay” behavior whilst texting with a stripper.

From Talking Points Memo:

“It was just weird. I mean, to me, you know, hey, if he said, ‘Hey, you got really hot breasts man, I’d love to suck on them.’ Then like, yeah, cool. But like, he didn’t say that,” Shaftan explained. “It was like kind of like, I don’t know, it was like what a gay guy would say to a stripper. It’s the way he was talking to her. It’s just like like there was no sexual interest at all. I don’t know. To me, if I was single and you know like some stripper was tweeting me, I might take advantage of the perks of the office, you know?”

What a man! And then:

“This is strange. It’s just weird. … It’s like, ‘I don’t know who she is. I don’t know anything about her.’ Get the fuck out of here dude. You can’t follow her Twitter page and not know she’s got those great breasts. How do you fucking not know?” Shaftan said. “It’s just too odd and people they just wonder, like, who does this guy really want to work for? Who’s he representing?”

Is this guy for real? Because fuck this guy and his twisted, logic-free arguments. Yes, Rick Shaftan, please stay away from fact-based campaigning and stick to the sophomoric jabs. That seems like the not strange and not weird way to run a GOP campaign.
