Don’t drink the water in Newark.
Thing - Crime - Corruption - New - Jersey
The only thing worse than the crime and corruption in the New Jersey city that gave the nation Cory Booker is its drinking water. First, they found lead in the water in schools and then in people’s homes.
In some homes the lead content in the water is four times higher than the federal limit.
Cory - Booker - Senator - New - Jersey
And Cory Booker, the Senator from New Jersey, running to run the country, is blaming racism.
"Newark's water emergency demands our federal government's immediate attention. Everyone deserves clean, safe water - it's shameful that our national crisis of lead-contaminated water disproportionately hits poor black and brown communities like my own," Booker tweeted.
Crisis - Cause - Newark - Water - Crisis
Did a “national crisis” cause Newark’s clean water crisis?
Booker probably forgot that he had served as the ex-officio chairman of the Newark Watershed Conservation and Development Corporation. It's understandable that Spartacus forgot all about it because while he was running Newark, he never actually attended a single NWCDC meeting.
While - Representative
And, after a while, he stopped even pretending to send a representative.
The NWCDC was being paid $10 million a year to manage Newark’s water.
Linda - Watkins-Brashear - Booker - Ally - Donor
Linda Watkins-Brashear, a Booker ally and donor, worked as the director of the NWCDC. At least until she was arrested, tried and convicted in a $1 million kickback scheme. The scandal broke during Booker’s final year in office. And the NWCDC, Board of Trustees, which he was supposed to be overseeing, took swift action by dissolving the board, and writing a $450,000 check to Brashear.
It was Brashear’s second severance package. The first one, of $200,000, came when she left for three weeks while still continuing to receive her salary. That was the same year Booker took office.
Nice - Work
