The mainstream media has been fixated on promoting the political career of Newark, New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker. Neighborhood residents insist that he has never lived at the home he claims as his residence in their city. Instead, they claim the townhouse is only used as an office by city police charged with providing security for him. Booker doesn't have to reside in Newark in order to run in the special election being held today to replace the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D); however, he is required to live in the city in order to serve as the city's mayor, and to cast votes in the precinct in which he claims as his residence. Neighbors believe that he actually lives somewhere in New York City. Nonetheless, nobody in the mainstream media seems to be the least bit concerned about his residency. Why? Booker is heavily favored to win today's special election over this conservative Republican opponent, Steve Lonegan, who the media has virtually ignored throughout the campaign.
