Sen. Cory Booker’s Secret Girlfriend Revealed
Cory Booker, United States Senator from New Jersey, is considering throwing his hat in the ring for the race to United States President in 2020. In the midst of all that, sources say he’s also hiding a romantic relationship.
Booker is said to be dating executive director of the Council of Urban Professionals and mother of two, Chanda Gibson. They’ve known each other since Gibson worked on Booker’s 2002 campaign for mayor of Newark, NJ and have reportedly been dating off and on for years. A source tells Page Six,
He’s been dating her on and off for years . . . No one could understand why he told her their relationship is secret.
Gibson refused to comment on the nature of their relationship — or if there is a relationship at all.
In the past, opponents of Booker have tried to make claims that he was gay. To those rumors, Booker has previously stated,
People who think I’m gay, some part of me thinks it’s wonderful. Because I want to challenge people on their homophobia . . . I say, ‘So what does it matter if I am?’
