Steve Lonegan Says It’s ‘Weird’ Cory Booker Won’t Refute Gay Rumors: ‘I Like Being a Guy’
New Jersey GOP Senate candidate Steve Lonegan said on Tuesday he thinks it’s “weird” that his opponent, Newark Mayor Cory Booker (D), won’t put to rest rumors about his sexual orientation.
“It’s kind of weird. As a guy, I personally like being a guy. I don’t know if you saw the stories last year. They’ve been out for quite a bit about how he likes to go out at three o’clock in the morning for a manicure and a pedicure,” Lonegan, the conservative former mayor of Bogota, N.J., told Newsmax.
Lonegan’s comments imply that someone who is gay is not “a guy.”
In a Washington Post profile published on Tuesday, Booker said that he is perfectly comfortable if people are unsure about his sexual orientation and that he wants to keep his romantic life private.
