(The Root) — As news spread about Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker’s Twitter exchange with a Portland, Ore., stripper, Twitter was quick to respond, as usual. Most users, however, were uninterested, saying that the reveal was a “nonscandal” and a “nonstory,” more interested in the fact that a vegan strip club — where the woman in question works — even exists:
This Cory Booker stripper DM non-scandal story revealed there’s a Vegan strip club in Portland. Dammit Portland, stop being so Portland.

Uh NJGOP, you can’t spread rumors that Cory Booker is gay bc he is single & then make a big deal about him tweeting a female stripper. …

so @CoryBooker is friends with a stripper, big deal. He is single and can do what he wants. Doesn’t make him a bad civil servant.
