3. Booker is beholden to Wall Street money in a big way...

 

Cory Booker's defense of Wall Street may hurt his status with liberals, but it won't hurt his bank account

The Newark mayor has taken at least $491,000 in political contributions from the financial services industry in the last nine months more than a third of his total fund-raising this election cycle, according to campaign filings with the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission and the Federal Election Commission.
