Newark’s Water In Crisis: Officials Claim Former Mayor Cory Booker ‘Left A Mess’

So this “water crisis” existed while Cory Booker was Mayor and Water Commission Chairman? Pray tell, Spartacus, what did you do about it?

As Mayor of Newark, Booker was also chairman of the Newark Watershed Conservation and Development Corporation which went bankrupt at the end of his seven-year tenure. His personally-appointed Executive Director was sentenced to eight years in prison for taking a $1 million bribe, and as Chairman, Booker never attended a single board meeting and yet Newark’s water was never fixed.

In this case, he not only was “responsible” based on his title of Mayor, but also directly responsible, and he failed in his duty. It’s outrageous that he would then speak out on how bad the situation is.

Now, Booker wants what he calls the federal government to take care of it. He means the taxpayers from all states should clean up his mess. If you do some research, you will find tax dollars already went there to help fix things. Booker left a mess they say, so Booker should have to go back there and clean up his mess on his dime and his own time. Is anyone out there sick of the crooked politicians?

This is part of the Democrats playbook. Cheat, lie, steal money intended to fix problems in your city or state then expect federal taxpayers to step in and fix your mess. Why would anyone consider any Democrat for president?

Booker wants to be President. I suppose he’s headed for the bigger purse to rob. Democrats run most of these cities with horrible conditions, but I don’t care what your party is you should step up and do something before it gets out of control. When you have the title, the microphone, and the government paycheck, the American people are your responsibility, not illegal immigrants. When an individual makes a financial mistake it’s called bankruptcy when the government makes those mistakes it’s called the national debt, or sometimes they have the nerve to call it just what it is, a tax hike.

Last Saturday, the Environmental Protection Agency asked local officials to address Newark residents with FREE bottle waters because the filters that were nationally were tested and found it was not removing led from the drinking water.

It is crazy to think you are are trying to run for President of the United States to make the country better when you can’t even take care of the water situation in your state. That’s ridiculous.

Officials handed out 38,000 filters last year to Newark residents who were potentially at risk of having contaminated drinking water due to outdated lead piping in the city’s water system.

Critics claim Booker, a U.S. senator who served as Newark’s mayor from 2006 to 2013, failed to exercise proper oversight of the city’s water commission, making him partially responsible for the current water crisis.

Booker has no credibility, especially on water,” Brendan O’Flaherty, an economics professor at Columbia University who put together a 2011 report on the commission, told the Washington Times.  “He did not leave a legacy of a well-functioning water treatment plant and engineering corps. He left a mess,” O’Flaherty said. [Fox News]

Once again a democratic run city with mismanagement and careless use of politic funds point the finger at everyone but themselves as the root cause of any crisis.

Given a chance, he will do the same thing to this country. Reminds me of someone else…but I really can’t point him out. I forgot his name. He’s been out of the public eye for several years now, nope, can’t remember his name.

It should be clear by now that blaming inner-city blight on those who live there plays right into the left’s strategy. Their plight is but a nasty symptom of the disease called progressivism.

Another incident of a liberal Democrat being unqualified to lead!
