Bad news is hitting for possible 2020 presidential candidate and current Democratic Sen. Corey Booker — and it could be making hypocrites of his entire party in the process.

An accusation has been made via Twitter that “Spartacus” — as the New Jersey senator infamously referred to himself during Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation battle — sexually assaulted a gay man.

The account, without being too graphic, does detail what allegedly happened when the man said he met Booker at “an informal gathering” four years ago. It also gives some detail about the man making the accusation without identifying him.

(Note: Some very crude language.)

The gist of the story is that Booker, who has admitted sexually groping a female friend in high school, sexually assaulted the man in a restroom after the alleged victim complimented him. The alleged victim’s account, published online, is lengthy and was shared with an attorney.

According to the man’s story, the alleged incident occured in 2014 and the victim claims to be a liberal who was a Democrat at the time.

While he wrote that he has gone through rough times since the alleged incident, — “Fast forward 2 jobs, 3 therapists and one suicide attempt later to the latter half of last month” — he wrote that Booker’s behavior during the Kavanaugh hearings convinced him to speak out.

“Watching Mr. Booker’s histrionic defense of the alleged sexual assault victim was so laughably ironic, so jarringly cringeworthy, and so triggering that it put me into a state of depressed rumination,” he wrote.

He made contact with a lawyer — Harmeet Dhillon of the Dillon Law Group, the high-profile Republican attorney and a member of the Republican National Committee.

At Dhillon’s urging, the man wrote, he reached out to New Yorker reporter Ronan Farrow, who has broken so many #MeToo stories, but Farrow did not show much interest in his story, from the man’s account. (Readers might remember Farrow co-bylined an article in the New Yorker in which a former Yale classmate of Kanaugh’s accused him of drunkenly exposing himself during a party. That story had no corroborating witnesses, but it didn’t stop Farrow from going with it.)

Using the Twitter handle “Deep Throat,” the alleged victim posted a follow-up to his accusation post, addressing some questions and concerns that were raised regarding not reporting at the time and if he will press charges. The statute of limitations would prohibit charges being filed at this time.

As the whole country probably remembers, when Kavanaugh was accused of sexual assault, Booker himself had a lot to say that now he may wish he didn’t.

For example, he said witnesses who could not remember the party where Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford said she was assaulted might have cast doubt on the accusations, but did not exonerate Kavanaugh. Booker may regret setting that standard for his own situation.

In Kavanaugh’s case, Booker and others made it clear that evidence didn’t matter. An accusation was enough for Booker when it came to Kavanaugh. Now, some conservatives are using that against him.

Booker also said that in Kavanaugh’s case it wasn’t about politics but “moral leadership.” The same applies to Booker, right?

At one point, as The Daily Caller noted, Booker said, “There is so much at stake here — this has nothing to do with politics. This has to do with who we are as moral leaders” and that “in a moral moment, there is no neutral.”

He also called those supporting Kavanaugh “complicit in evil.” So, does the same apply to anyone supporting Booker against a similarly unproven accusation?

Conservative activists and commenters have been calling for an investigation of Booker regarding the accusation. One must be undertaken, right?

A number of people on the right are holding the same standard for Booker as they did for Kavanaugh. Innocent until proven guilty, but do investigate.

Democrats, however, are now backed into a corner. If they don’t treat Booker the same way they treated Kavanaugh, their hypocrisy will be on full display, and right before the midterm elections.

Because they changed the rules, Booker included. And now it is coming back to bite them. Booker included.

If evidence is no longer relevant and an accusation is all that is required to end a man’s career, Booker should be removing himself from office, right?

If that is the new normal, then Democrats should be demanding he do so, immediately.

    What a HYPOCRITE.He was out to crucify Judge Kavanaugh. He should immediately resign. He is not fit after groping a woman in the past and now in 2014 attacking a man in the bathroom and wanting sexual favors. How dare him chastise Judge Kavanaugh. They better not let him get away with this travesty.

    Booker should be booked! Innocent until proven guilty, but this man should have his day in court. Who knows how many other people will come forward with their own story.

    Seeing as how this involved a democrat , he is innocent until proven guilty and more than likely it is a fabricated story, unlike Kavanaugh who was guilty when the bimbo first made the charge, and NEVER produced any evidence whatsoever.

    Corey ‘Spartacus’ Booger has displayed ‘mental issues’ many times as he’s attacked various conservatives on these ‘committees’ he’s on, hostile, aggressive, abusive, basically whacko, so it’s no surprise this comes out at last. Throw in sexual deviant / assaulter / abuser, time for this baztard to pay the piper.

    I don’t know if this is fake news, but I hope the accusation serves to show Booker what it feels like to be falsely accused and presumed guilty. If he can experience the horrible thought of possibly having HIS life ruined for no reason, maybe, just maybe, he will gain empathy for what he is trying to do to others!

    Funny how when the shoe’s on the other foot it’s very uncomfortable. Yep! What goes around comes around, Democraps. Let’s see how much damage you can do to your credibility with this one. Might just be the push that brings on the full-blown RED TIDE in November. LOL

    Senator Booker has been in the Washington Swamp since his arrival in DC. He left The Swamp in Newark, NJ in hopes of finding better pickings in The Great Washington Swamp. Booker does not discriminate he will sexually assault men and women alike! His campaign slogan is BI BOOKER AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY ASSAULTER.

    I think Booker will be extremely popular…in prison.

    Obviously we must believe the accuser and Booker must resign, right?

    Certainly in his “job interview” for President known as the 2020 election Booker would need to be passed over for another Democrat.

    Perhaps Elizabeth Warren. Oh wait, she just disqualified herself with her DNA test cultural appropriation fiasco.

    Maybe Kamala Harris. Has anyone heard rumors that she worked her way through school offering…ahem…personal services? I’m sure there is no evidence to support such rumors, or that period personals ads saying “For a good time, call Kami! Ask about the ‘Little Schoolgirl Hump Day Special’ for just $99.” Wonder if there might be pics. I don’t believe it . Nope.

    If this were a Republican who did this to his girlfriend or wife, this would have been front page news. Now a gay man comes into the mix and it is getting more coverage than the girlfriend getting beaten. The Republicans need to start returning jabs to the Democrats when one surfaces.
