Report: Booker Received “Confidential” Payments From Law Firm While Mayor

NEWARK – According to the New York Post, U.S. Senate candidate Cory Booker received “confidential” annual payments from his former law firm while serving as Newark’s mayor.

According to the paper, the Trenk DiPasquale law firm made more than $2 million in fees from local agencies with which Booker has influence while he was receiving the payments.

Booker told the Post that the payments were “a settlement buyout” for his interest in the firm, but would not specify exactly how much he received.

While Booker’s state financial disclosure forms list income from the West Orange law firm, they do not specify an amount. He has not released his tax returns, though his campaign has pledged to do so at some unspecified point in the future.
