Cory Booker has made an online friend who loves attention as much as he does — a bleached-blond, vegan stripper, with a topless photo on her Twitter page and a tattoo eagle flying out of her bikini bottom.
The Newark mayor, the Democratic candidate for Senate in New Jersey’s
special election on Oct. 16, has been gushing over the Oregon
pole-dancer on Twitter for months.
In one direct message he told her, “The East Coast loves you and by the East Coast, I mean me.”
Dancer Lynsie Lee — whose bare-breasted Twitter profile describes her
as having “wits and t-ts” — has returned the love. She’s posted screen
shots of her exchanges with Booker online and tweeted images of herself
with pictures of him.
“Ohh just got a postcard from @CoryBooker in the mail. this is going under my pillow for later ” she wrote alongside an image of her holding what looked like a signed campaign promotional photo of Booker.
“Thanks for the generous tweet,” Booker responded.
She also once tweeted “@CoryBooker if you’re ever POTUS I call dibs on First Lady.”
The lusty Lee works at a go-go hall in Portland called Casa Diablo,
which bills itself as the world’s first vegan strip club, since the
dishes on their bar menu are all meat-free.
“We keep the meat on the pole, not on the plate ” tweeted Lee, whose large collection of tattoos includes a gun on her leg.
She and Booker have been sending private tweets to each other since February.
According to BuzzFeed, the two started conversing over Twitter after
they appeared in a film about the social Web site called “Follow Friday:
She even sent Booker a tweet asking if he was going to the film’s
premiere. He responded by saying he had a dinner to attend, but asked if
she was going.
Lee revealed the communication in March during a Twitter tussle with
an Ohio women who had battled with her about who had dibs on being first
lady if Booker became president.
On Wednesday, Booker’s camp argued that the unmarried mayor was
hardly engaged in a flirtation. “I think it’s pretty well known that the
mayor talks with people from all walks of life on Twitter,” said
spokesman Kevin Griffis. “Really, the most shocking part of this story
was learning there is a vegan strip club in Portland.”
