According to Gawker.com there's only one question "anyone really cares about" in relation to Newark Mayor, sometime superhero, and likely future New Jersey Governor Cory Booker.
Is he gay?
Booker has neither confirmed nor denied it, and his spokesman last week told Buzzfeed that he "would not comment on such matters."
Rumors have been circulated for years by the media and his political opponents. In his first race for office, as city councillor, Booker's rivals claimed he was secretly gay (along with being "white" and a "member of the Ku Klux Klan" - neither of which appears to be true). And Booker's bachelor status at age 43, and relatively few relationships with women, probably help to keep the rumors alive.
Booker usually casts himself as a hopeless single dude. He once said that the main difference between himself and Obama is that the POTUS is "married to an amazing woman and has two kids, and I have dead plants and fungus growing in my fridge."
