Go figure. Cory Booker’s imaginary friend “T-Bone” has made people question other claims made by the Newark mayor and U.S. Senate candidate.

National Review has filed a lawsuit against the city of Newark, the Newark Police Department and Cory Booker to obtain records they say should be available under New Jersey law — records that should help provide clarity to this account:

So count us as a little skeptical about heart-wrenching stories told by Cory Booker that happen to serve his rhetorical purposes. That is why Eliana has gotten interested in the case of Wazn Miller. In the sort of tragedy all too common in our cities, Miller was gunned down in Newark in 2004 in a murder that has never been solved.

Almost no one would have heard his name if Booker hadn’t repeatedly told the story of his last minutes. According to Booker, he heard shots in his neighborhood, Miller stumbled backwards and collapsed into his arms, and then died, as Booker whispered into his ear, “Stay with me, stay with me.”

Now, we have no idea of the truth of this account, and as far as we know, the incident happened exactly as described by Booker. But, given the dubious existence of T-Bone, we’d like to see documents backing up Booker’s statements. Certainly, the public has a right to know if Booker has made a habit of embellishing or fabricating similarly cinematic stories.

Read it all here. Look for T-Bone to release a passionate defense of Booker at some point.
