In 1992, Cory "Spartacus" Booker admitted to groping a high school classmate and issued a call for sexual respect

Oh the things the other side gets away with. Hey, at least the Washington Post is covering this story about "Spartacus." But it won't be six or seven reports a day, as it is with the Brett Kavanaugh accusation.
When he was in high school, Cory Booker, the New Jersey Democrat and possible White House contender, groped his classmate. He reached for her breast, and when she swatted his hand away, he made another attempt.

The incident resurfaced this week as Booker joined calls for an FBI investigation into the allegation of high-school-era sexual assault leveled by Christine Blasey Ford against Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court.

But the skeleton in Booker’s closet seized on by outlets such as Fox News and the Daily Caller wasn’t really in his closet. The senator himself chose years ago to air the issue, marking a notable contrast with instances in which accusations of impropriety burst forth as a result of media investigation or opposition research.
