Cory Booker weds?


Artist Norman Rockwell famously portrayed the chain of gossip.


As the 'race to the altar' by same-sex couples revved up (see Ledger story here), we are still waiting for news of Plainfield's reaction to the changed situation resulting from the NJ Supreme Court's refusal to block  same-sex marriages.

While Plainfield did not open City Hall to wedding license applicants over the weekend as some towns have done, Councilor Williams (see here) expects the city's registrar of vital statistics, Barbara Wynn, will begin issuing the licenses on Monday morning (note to those making plans: bring proof of residency in Plainfield and a witness).

In the midst of all this hubbub comes word that Senator-elect Cory Booker has wed.

According to a Plainfield Today reader who picked up her grade school chum's mother at Newark's Penn Station the other day, the friend's mother's best friend's daughter recently got married at Newark City Hall and was told that her appointed time came 'just after Cory Booker'.

The chain of people involved immediately brought to mind Norman Rockwell's famous illustration of the circle of gossip (see top of story).

Has Booker wed?

Or is he just the victim of a rumor?

What do you know? '

Somehow between your second by second Sharon countdown and this baloney about Cory Booker, your Clips missed the Star Ledger's backhanded endorsement of Chris Christie in this morning's paper. This selective reality of yours is just pathetic. Probably it's indicative of what's to come when party choice Mapp starts selling out the city to his handlers.

Plainfield Today is nothing more than a tabloid rag.

Cory Booker plans to marry couples just after midnight, said he declined to officiate until now, because he was waiting for marriage equality. Maybe that's why he was in the Registrar's office.

HE WAS IN CITY HALL SUPPORTING THE GAY MARRIAGE ACT. HE WAS ONE OF THE FIRST MAYORS IN THE STATE TO MARRY A GAY COUPLE
