Lautenberg Suggests Booker Deserves a Spanking

Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), who might face a 2014 primary challenge from Newark Mayor Cory Booker (D), said his fellow Democrat is "entitled" to run if he chooses to but suggested that he had to give a "spanking" to his potential rival for so openly coveting his seat, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Said Lautenberg: "I have four children, I love each one of them. I can't tell you that one of them wasn't occasionally disrespectful, so I gave them a spanking and everything was OK."

He would not give a timetable for when he might make up his mind about making a re-election bid.
