National Review editor Rich Lowry announced Wednesday that his publication will sue Newark mayor and Democrat US Senate candidate Cory Booker, the City of Newark, and that city’s police department. The dispute stems from NR’s desire to verify a story Booker has repeatedly told about Wazn Miller, someone Booker claims died in his arms after being gunned down.
Lowry points out that although New Jersey is an open-records state, “[W]e have been stonewalled and given the run-around by everyone we’ve asked for help in obtaining the relevant police records.”
Booker has already been caught once fabricating a story about someone called “T-Bone,” a drug dealer who doesn’t exist.
