BREAKING NEWS – Newark, New Jersey – As thousands of residents of New Jersey’s largest city received bottled water this week amid a contamination crisis, its former mayor — Democratic presidential contender Cory Booker — faced renewed backlash from critics who claim he mismanaged the city’s water commission during his time at City Hall. Many black residents 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 crisis. Booker responded by saying, “The African-Americans living there should not be complaining about the water, because most of them can’t swim.”
