Some Staff Members Say Booker Campaign Is Not Treating Them Fairly

NEWARK – Some members of U.S. Senate candidate Cory Booker’s campaign staff are unhappy with how they have been treated, according to a Star-Ledger report.

The disgruntled field staff members say that the campaign has failed provide promised housing. “There are people paying for hotels or they are sleeping in their cars,” one staffer told the paper, which reported that she plans to quit the campaign.

Many senior staff members – including Booker’s campaign director, communications director and finance director – are all from out of state, according to the report.

Booker is one of four Democrats who hope to win the party’s nomination for the remainder of the late U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg’s unexpired term. Congressmen Frank Pallone and Rush Holt and Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver are also running in the Aug. 13 primary.
