Lautenberg suggests Booker needs a spanking

Old man spanking

U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg suggested to the Philadephia Inquirer that Newark Mayor Cory Booker should be spanked for the disrespect he has shown to his elder by trying to push the senator out of office.

Booker has already formed a 2014 campaign committee, prompting anonymous Lautenberg aides to rip the mayor to Politico, accusing him of being “disrespectful.” I asked Lautenberg about that characterization this afternoon.

“I have four children, I love each one of them. I can’t tell you that one of them wasn’t occasionally disrespectful, so I gave them a spanking and everything was OK,” Lautenberg said with a smile in his first public comments since Booker announced he was considering a run for Senate.
