Anti-Gay Flier in N.J. Senate Race Has “Cory Brooker” Typo

A conservative group sent out a flier supporting Cory Booker's opponent in the New Jersey Senate race, Jeff Bell. It also called him "Cory Brooker."


New Jersey Senator Cory Booker is likely to coast to re-election next month. He’s way ahead in the polls against conservative businessman Jeff Bell.

But that hasn’t stopped the Public Advocate of the United States, a conservative Christian advocacy group that is against gay marriage, taxpayer-funded art, abortion, hate crime laws and the “mainstream media’s promotion and glorification of drug abuse, teenage sex, gangs, atheism, homosexuality and other immoral behavior and beliefs.” It’s a nonprofit 501(c)4 political organization.

And, yes, it misspelled Cory Booker’s name as “Cory Brooker” on a flier sent to New Jersey residents. (The one above was sent to a Mercer County resident.)


The back of the flier tells residents that Bell has a “100% pro-family rating” on a survey he returned to the Public Advocate group. Booker, instead, is “Refusing to answer his survey” and has a 0 percent rating. The group even calls it “homosexual ‘marriage'” — and mentions something called the Gay Bill of Special Rights, which is the conservative word for the gay rights bill the Senate passed last year.

The flier also sends readers to this webpage, which notes Bell is against gay marriage and the gay rights bill. It does not say if Bell shares the Public Advocate of the United States’ anti-copy editing stance.
