A Talking Points Memo reporter today got veteran Steve Lonegan advisor Rick Shaftan to go all Barbara Morgan on Cory Booker.
In a profanity-filled assessment of the race delivered via phone Thursday, Shaftan “suggested voters would be turned off by Booker’s ‘odd’ behavior including Twitter messages the Democrat sent to a stripper, that Shaftan described as ‘strange’ and ‘like what a gay guy would say.'”
Lonegan is the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate running against Democratic nominee Booker, the mayor of Newark.
Lonegan fired Shaftan later Friday, according to published reports.
